Peter Pegg awarded the Bass Trophy for 2016


Presented to Writtle Art Group in 1976 by Leslie Bass, the trophy is awarded to the most popular painting of the annual Autumn Exhibition. Viewers vote for their favourite picture and the "winner" holds the trophy for one year.

This year's winner was Peter Pegg with "Moody Blue" - an atmospheric street scene - with Liang Hsiang Porter's "Winter Green" taking second place. To complete a very fulfilling exhibition Peter also took third place with "Purple Rain".
