‘Blue Sky, Purple Shadows’ hanging in The Artist exhibition at Patchings Art Centre
A rather belated update on the exhibition of one of my paintings at Patchings Art Centre, Nottinghamshire.
I popped over to see the exhibition on 15th July on the last day of the Patchings Art, Craft & Design Festival. Now in its 25th year, the festival is always a lovely event. There are lots of art materials to tempt the pocket and it’s great to see artists demonstrating their painting in the marquees – although I confess I was pleased not to be one of them. It was boiling hot! (hence, incidentally, the image above of me looking rather red and weary :))
My painting, ‘Blue Sky, Purple Shadows’ was one of only 70 selected for exhibition in an open competition run by The Artist magazine so I am very pleased to be included, as you can imagine. Although the Festival is now over the exhibition continues until 12th August so there is still plenty of time to visit. You will find a mix of high quality, mostly figurative, work in a variety of styles and media – and a coffee shop next door too!
Should you feel inclined to vote my painting your ‘People’s Choice’ (thank you!) you can do so here http://www.painters-online.co.uk/gallery/PatchingsGallery.htm
From that link you can also see the other works on show and you can find directions to Patchings Art Centre via their website http://www.patchingsartcentre.co.uk
I plan to post some new work soon. There are a few things I have been working on which are a little different. Touch and go at the moment whether they work…….!
