THIS year, an open theme was set for the annual open art exhibition at the Storiel gallery in Bangor.

A diverse range of framed artworks have filled the gallery walls along with a number of ceramic pieces.

A pair of paintings in oil by Jonathan Retallick was awarded the “Selector’s Choice”, while works by eight other artists also received commendation.

As the exhibition draws to a close, the winner of the “People’s Choice 2022”, a prize donated by the Friends of Storiel, is Donna Jones, for her painting in acrylic, “Cors Ddyga”.

Donna is an artist from Bangor who has enjoyed painting since her childhood.

Her main focus is to paint local landscape and noting the special atmosphere of a place as she walks the mountain paths.

As an artist, interpreting this atmosphere becomes the inspiration in her work.

The exhibition closes at Storiel on Saturday, June 25.
