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
Me with my prize winning painting at Patchings
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.
I am delighted to discover today that my painting ‘Spring stream, Barnsdale Woods’ (see last post) has been accepted for exhibition in the Leisure Painter category at the Patchings 2016 Art Competition and Exhibition and another, ‘Bluebells near Easton on the Hill’, has been ‘highly commended’ and will be shown on the Patchings website (www.patchingsartcentre.co.uk). To have been selected for exhibition is very special. My work will be seen by hundreds of visitors to the art festival between 9 and 12 June and judged by artists I greatly admire.
