The 2021 Weald of Kent Art Society Autumn Exhibition - the first physical exhibition post-lockdown - ran from 8 to 13 November 2021. It was held for the first time in St Mildred's Church, a centrally located venue in Tenterden. A great number of visitors to the exhibition commented on the beautiful exhibition space and the high standard of work on display.

A highlight of the Autumn Exhibition was the announcement of the winner of the inaugural NFU Mutual Art Prize - awarded for a single piece of art on show. WOKAS Chairman Clive Dand said the Society is delighted to have NFU Mutual's support for the creative arts: “It has been a difficult time for all artists during lockdown, trying to find inspiration while being confined, and this Art Prize is just the boost we all need.”

John Hamilton received the prize from NFU Mutual's Private Client Executive Jodie Dane - for 'Through the Ravine', a vibrant interpretation in acrylic of an Italian landscape.
