The Viking Cruises “British Art Prize”
Exciting news! Stephanie Crockett one of our members has been shortlisted for the British Art Prize – a competition run by Artists and Illustrators magazine. Apart from the top 3 prizes, there is a further prize decided by popular vote. If you would like to vote for Stephanie’s painting (a portrait of Jake), which is obviously the best of the bunch, please visit the website If you could also pass this on to friends who might be kind enough to vote for Stephanie, that would be fantastic.

It is with great sadness we have to announce that 3 long term members of the Taunton Art Group and TAG committee have past away. Clive Sweet who was a founding member of the Taunton Art Group, Patricia Hibberd who was responsible for the TAG challenges for many years and David Plowman a long standing member of TAG. We send our thoughts and memories of their kindness to their families during this difficult time. As a tribute I have included an artwork from Clive, Patricia & David.
