Winners of potato supplier Branston's art award announced

An emerging creative talent has become the first winner of an arts award run by the potato supplier Branston.

Helen Knight won £500 for a three-dimentional wall-hung piece called Resurrection. She received the prize from Branston general manager Ian Wait.

More than 100 artworks by 68 regional artists have been exhibited at Ilminster Arts Centre in Somerset. Artist and co-organiser of the exhibition Diane Burnell said: "The five judges of our open exhibition were unanimous on the winner of the Branston Art Award."

Knight's piece was made from recycled materials. Categories for the competition were printmaking, photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, glass and ceramics.

Brian Parsons won a two-week exhibition slot at the centre for winning the best two-dimensional work for his painting Angioplasty. Penny Elizabeth won art courses for her three-dimensional wall-hung piece called Awakening.
