The constitution of East Riding Artists allows for the appointment of honorary membership of an artist or craftsperson who has achieved success over recent times or someone who has worked hard to promote the arts in the East Riding.

John Sprakes has had very successful exhibitions at the Mall Gallery and at Patchings, and has recently published two books. The committee therefore wish to recognise this by appointing John as an Honorary Member of ERA.

John's work is represented in both public and private collections worldwide. He was elected as a member of the Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) 1987 and the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) in 1990. John has also won several awards including the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition.
