The exhibition at THG is supported by sponsor Bearnes, Hampton & Littlewood auctioneers and provides a unique platform to showcase the work of Wessex-based artists.

Angela Blackwell said: “We love hosting the Evolver Prize! It is great to have 100 artworks for the first time. There is an amazing diversity of artworks considering they all have the same dimensions. This is such a popular exhibition with our visitors as they get the chance to vote for their favourite cover too.”
