‘In a climate of change,’ can be seen at Banbury Museum and Art Gallery https://www.banburymuseum.org/ from 27th January-10th March 2024. The Ironstone Art Prize is a biennual award, which I’m happy to say I have been selected for.
I’m over the moon to have my painting ‘English Summer,’ selected for The Wells Art Contemporary exhibition.
Wells Art Contemporary (WAC) was established in 2012 by a group of artists in Wells, the beautiful cathedral city in the South-West of England. Wells Cathedral, dedicated to St Andrew the Apostle, is the seat of the Bishop of Bath and Wells. Its magnificent West Front dates from the 13th Century and in August each year the Cathedral becomes the venue for the annual WAC exhibition.
WAC is an open competition and exhibition for contemporary visual arts which has established a strong presence in the UK art world and which is drawing artists from places as diverse as Australia, Azerbaijan, India, Italy, Korea, Japan and the United States.
The exhibition runs from the 5th August- 2nd September 2023
I thought I would share some of my new work.
I have two events in the calendar for September & they still appear to be going ahead.
My efforts are therefore focused on developing some of my themes in preparation.
As I look back on 2019 I believe my work has progressed, in the way I use paint and other mediums. I have made a concerted effort to work on a larger scale and feel I have been successful. I will still continue to work small too, I get a lot of pleasure from working at different scales. I’ve also been developing my etching skills and I am particularly enjoying dry point. I am intending to try collagraph printing and sugar lift when I next making a copper plate etching. My motivation in all scenarios is mark making and the different qualities I can achieve..
As well as progress in my work I have also been involved in more art exhibitions and events and hope to continue building on these in 2020. My next project is an exhibition at Rugby Museum & Art Gallery, where I will be showing alongside Gordon Connell
