I missed the submission for this, again. This year's judge was Luke Frost, a painter of rectangles, and rectangles within rectangles. I was told that a number of ladies turned up to submit paintings of rectangles, but none featured in the exhibition (there was also a strong complaint in the comments book about the choice of judge).The winning painting, which amused the judge, is not the one which I would have chosen, and neither would I have commended any of those actually commended, but I could say that about every year that I've had a look at the exhibition. Nevertheless, JJ Fox continue to run it and there are many fine paintings exhibited, well thought through, well executed and many unusual subjects. On the whole, it's a really good exhibition.
