The Jess Burns Memorial Prize is awarded each year to the Dunfermline Art Club artist whose work had been voted favourite painting by the general public during the clubs Annual Exhibition.
The award comes with vouchers for the purchase of art materials and we are pleased to announce that the winner for 2019 is Chris Amos for his excellent pastel work “Maine Coone”. Congratulations Chris ! The runner up this year was Annette Burgess.
The voting for the prize this year was again well spread, with 66% of the entrants getting at least one vote.

At this year’s Winter Exhibition, for the first time, the club invited the public to cast a vote for their favourite painting on show (similar to the voting which takes place during our Annual Exhibition). The outcome resulted in joint winners. Very well done to Anne Pack for her watercolour “Now you see me” and Jack Pender’s “Poppies / Seascape” in oil. Anne’s winning painting is shown above. We don’t have a picture of Jack’s painting at this time.
