People's Choice


Five of the works on permanent display in the Rona Cole Art Gallery were chosen by our visitors.

As part of the planning for the new gallery we ran a People's Choice voting opportunity in 2010. Visitors were asked to tell us their preferences from a pre-selected group of works from our art collection. The top five vote winners now hang in the new gallery and are listed below according to the number of votes they received.

1 - Tree of Life, by Peter Le Vasseur
2 - Petit Port, by William Trost Richards
3 - View of St Peter Port, attributed to Peter Le Lievre
4 - Venus Pool, by William Arthur Toplis
5 - Surrealist Defences, by Chris Foss

The five People's Choice works are illustrated above and in the image gallery below.
