Daniel Chadwick to judge winning artist at Painswick Valley Artburst Festival.

Daniel Chadwick the internationally renowned artist who lives and works at Lypiatt Park and is the son of the equally famous sculptor, Lynn Chadwick, will be judging the best artists in the ‘Aspects of Painswick ‘exhibition within the Painswick Arburst Festival this year in August.
He and Luke Millikin the Manager of The Painswick , the top rated hotel which is the major sponsor of the Festival and will be providing the £300 winner’s prize and hospitality prizes for the two runners up, will be judging the ‘Aspects of Painswick’ exhibits on the opening day of the festival Saturday 20th August and awarding the prizes that same afternoon.
The Painswick will be hosting a show of sculpture during the exhibition and will display the winning ‘Aspects of Painswick’ picture in their reception at the close.
Jackie Herbert, Organiser of the Painswick Valley Artburst Festival said ‘ We are really honoured to have an internationally famous, local , professional artist like Daniel Chadwick, coming to act as an independent and authoritative judge of our artists’ exhibits. We hope that this will encourage all artists in the area to show their works in the festival for general exhibition in our many locations round the village or for the ‘Aspects of Painswick’ competition’
