Exhibition news and other updates

It’s been a long old time since my last post.  Many apologies!   I’ve not been idle.

  • My award winning painting ‘The Winding Road.  Yorkshire Dales’ appeared in the October issue of Leisure Painter magazine, which was exciting!

An appearance in October’s Leisure Painter magazine

  • On 22 and 23 September I took part in ‘The Great Stamford Brush Off’, a plein air painting event organised by Welland Valley Art Society.  The event coincided with Stamford’s Georgian Festival this year and the weather was very kind.  Completed paintings were exhibited in the anteroom at Stamford Arts Centre for the following week and I was fortunate to sell two of them.  Rather stupidly I forgot to photograph the paintings before they were framed under glass – so you will see reflections from the camera flash in the images below. I was working in mixed media and the paintings were great fun to do.   They represent a celebration of a lovely warm Autumn weekend.  I hope the new owners enjoy them as much as I enjoyed painting them.
  • I am exhibiting 4 paintings in the main gallery at Stamford Arts Centre as part of Welland Valley Art Society’s Autumn Exhibition, which opens today and runs until 14 October.  Here are the selected paintings.

Welland Valley Art Society have put on a great exhibition and it’s well worth a visit.  There are paintings, prints and sculpture on show – see the Arts Centre website http://www.stamfordartscentre.com

Patchings exhibition 2017

I am delighted to have been chosen to exhibit again this year at The Artist and Leisure Painter Patchings Competition and exhibition – and excited again to be a prizewinner (£250 worth of materials from Caran D’Ache)!

The exhibition opened in conjunction with the start of the Patchings Art, Craft and Photography Festival (which took place 13 – 16 July) and continues to run at Patchings Art Centre, Nottinghamshire until 20 August.  If you are in the area, do pay it a visit.  If you are unable to get there all of the exhibited works and prize winners can be seen on the following website – where there is also the chance to vote for my painting as your People’s Choice, should you wish https://www.patchingsartcentre.co.uk/TALP/TALP_Exhibition/gallery_view.php?Ref=?d&Entrant=?LP0411

I am very pleased to announce that I have received an award from Daler- Rowney at the Patchings Open Exhibition for my mixed media painting ‘ Spring Stream, Barnsdale Woods’.

Although the festival has now finished the exhibiton of paintings continues at Patchings Arts Centre until 24 July.  Please take a look of you can.  There are some great paintings both in the Leisure Painter and The Artist categories.  If you can’t visit in person you can take a look online –  see http://www.patchingsartcentre.co.uk/TALP/TALP_Exhibition/gallery_view.php?Ref=?1520_4&Entrant=?56ebb9061976e and vote for your favourite.

If you are interested in buying my painting you can do so via Patchings Art Centre.  The price seems to have gone amiss on the website but is £145 for the original framed painting.
