THE best work on display at the Visions of Sudbury art exhibition earlier this month can be enjoyed again – in the form of a calendar.

The display of 120 works of art at St Peter’s, on Market Hill, Sudbury, attracted artists from as far away as Brighton and Middlesborough, as well as entries from pupils at The Ryes School in Little Henny, and Great Cornard Upper School.

In November, a desk calendar is being published featuring the exhibition’s top 12 most popular works on show as selected by its 2,000 visitors.

Sally Freer, co-ordinator of Visions of Sudbury, said: “Next year, the Sudbury Society is celebrating its 40th birthday and, as part of special celebrations, it is producing a desk calendar depicting the top 12 best pictures in the exhibition.

“The result is a mix of paintings in a variety of media and photographs depicting seasonal images, markets, street scenes, meadow views, local walks and portraiture.

“The calendar will make an ideal Christmas gift. It will be available at a number of venues around Sudbury by early November.”

The selected winning painting was Sudbury, Market Hill, by Steven Binks and, for those who missed the exhibition, the top 15 pictures will be on display at Bookends bookshop, in Gaol Lane, throughout December.

“The Sudbury Society is most grateful for the sponsorship, both financial and in kind, from local businesses,” added Sally. “Without this support, Visions of Sudbury would not happen.”
