Eagle Gallery Open Studios
The Eagle Gallery
will be holding 'How We Do It' Open Studios from Monday 21st May - Thursday 14th June and I'll be exhibiting with 5 other artists at Cottage Farm Nurseries, 312 Cople Road, Cardington MK44 3SH as part of this event (see poster above for dates and the map below!). I'll be at the nurseries painting on Saturday June 2nd and Saturday June 9th so please feel free to come along and interrupt!
A highlight of the Eagle Gallery’s ‘How We Do It’ exhibition is a three-day event, over the Bank Holiday, of artists’ demonstrations. This drop-in event features demonstrations on portrait painting, printmaking, collage, painting with wool fibres, watercolour, ceramics, stitching and experimenting with acrylic, culminating on Monday afternoon with an illustrated talk by architect and artist Anthony Mackay on designing a city. I'll painting and sketching throughout Monday at the Gallery, hopefully outside!
The exhibition itself runs from May 21 to June 14 centres around explanatory statements from our artists and contains our normal range of art, ceramics, glass and jewellery as well as cards and unframed work in browsers.
For those who like to get out and about there are also 8 open studios to visit, providing the opportunity to talk to artists in their working environment and see a wider range of their work.
Earth Pathways Diary 2018
I'm thrilled that my painting 'Beech, Sharpenhoe Clappers' has been included in the 2018 Earth Pathways Diary. Earth Pathways produce beautiful diaries and calendars that honour the Earth and her cycles and is produced by a fantastic team of wonderful women. This lovely old Beech at Sharpenhoe Clappers, near Barton-le-Clay, is full of character and is an old friend. Its exposed roots clasp an ancient earthwork and when I was a child I used to swing from a rope seat attached to one of its huge overhanging branches. Alas, the branch and the rope are gone but the old tree still flourishes. Wonderful to see it shared through this diary.
