Praise for Val at annual art award

THE annual Diana Nelson art award, set up by Leeds Jewish Welfare Board, attracted an eclectic display of entries to commemorate the Board's 140th anniversary.

Martin Nelson, who now lives in Kenya, formed the award in memory of his wife Diana, an artist and art teacher.

He paid tribute to the Board's art teacher Val Bell, who "has been the inspiration for so many young and older artists".

Walking away with first prize in the adult category was Aubrey Solomon, a member of Val's community centre art class.

Jacob Simons scooped top prize in the children's section.
