JD Henderson Trophy

What have sheep to do with one of the prizes awarded annually at the Art Show?

The previous year’s winner of the J D Henderson Trophy chooses the new winner.

The 2020 winner was Stan Milne, whose work many of you will know for his landscapes. And sheep. Stan’s take on his own work is that he seems “to be inspired by sheep”.

Stan’s professional life started as an apprentice structural draughtsman, before he switched to engineering. After retiring from engineering, Stan became a full time artist.

His work displays aspects of technical drawing even though his medium these days is acrylic rather than draughtsman’s pens. His landscapes frequently contain familiar but quirky objects (Mars Rover, telephone boxes, the TARDIS to name a few) as well as sheep.

Stan has also submitted work to this year’s show so ewe will have the chance to buy four of Stan’s original paintings when our sale launches on 1 April.
