I was delighted to once again be selected for the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition. My painting, ‘Sedbergh and the Howgills’ below, features in the exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London this week, closing on 24 September – I’m off there on Thursday for the evening private view. The exhibition then moves on to Trowbridge Arts from 11 November to 23 December and Guildford House Gallery from the 13 January to 10 March.
Once again Wirksworth will be full of art as the annual Art & Architecture trail takes place. I will once again be exhibiting at Church View, The Croft – admittedly a bit of a steep climb up Greenhill, but I hope those who make it feel it was worthwhile. With street performance and live music around the town as well, it makes for an interesting and fun day out.
My latest work has now been added to the website – five new paintings can be found at the top of watercolours page.
April Artist of the Month – Cromford Gallery.
I will be at the Gallery on Sunday 9 April between 1 – 5 pm for an opportunity to ‘meet the artist’. Location details can be found on the exhibitions page – all are welcome.
