A great day out for the club and a winner from the club. We look forward to future events such as this. Well done Carol.

As part of Unnatural Borders in May, Quays Culture ran a Greater Manchester-wide art competition which saw groups from across the boroughs visit MediaCityUK to interpret the sculptures in their chosen medium. We saw some fantastic work produced, which went to a judging panel to decide the winner. After much deliberation, Carol Parkes of Salford Art Club was chosen, with panel lead Michael Simpson, Director of Visual Arts at The Lowry, commending the image:
The winning entry captures not only the immensity of the sculpture itself, but also the themes of endangerment and the impact of humankind on the natural world. The collaged letters are as overwhelming as the threat we pose to the natural environment, and break through the borders of the image itself.
