Baterbys Art Gallery reunited many artists to show their work of art* inspired by any visual element that pertains to 2012 Games in London, like colors and elements, and the result was fantastic. Two Brazilian Artists were participating, Soco Freire and Marta Cerqueira, both showing their wonderful talent. Jesslym Park was also a point of attention of all with a great painting. In reality they were all great, in art there are no winners, but great creative minds all in their own world of creation, with different colors and materials. The prizes were given to seven artists, Ivaldo Robles, Soco Freire, Angel Rivera were the three top winners with gold, silver and bronze medals.
