Sandwell’s Hidden Treasures – voting is now closed

Vote for your favourite exhibit in the final of Sandwell’s Hidden Treasures art competition.

Amateur artists, schools and community groups entered a range of pieces for the project, inspired by their favourite buildings, open spaces, walks, views and local attractions.

Over the summer, entries were displayed at our four museums – Haden Hill House, Manor House Museum, Oak House Museum and Wednesbury Museum and Art Gallery – and visitors voted for their favourite at each site.

The finalists are;

Old Chestnut at Sandwell Valley By Austin Clifford – Manor House Museum Finalist

Sunny Sunday Walks By Hayley Jukes – Haden Hill House Museum Finalist

Herons Trail By Wendy Priest – Oak House Museum Finalist

Brunswick Park By Priory Primary School Art Club – Wednesbury Museum and Art Gallery Finalist

Now you can vote for the overall winner, which will be announced in October.
Voting closes on 5 October.

The four pieces will also be going on a tour around local libraries (where you can also vote) for the winner of the Arts Trail.

Here are the dates and venues;

  • Tipton Library (Unity Walk)– Monday 10 September – 16 September
  • Oldbury Library – Monday 17 September –  23 September
  • Central Library (West Bromwich) – Monday 24 September – 30 September
