Tuesday 1st April - Sunday 13th April 2014 'Now and Then'
The acrylic and mixed media paintings in this exhibition have all been produced in the last three years since my retirement from teaching Art and Design. I was, however, trained as a printmaker and the etchings, woodcuts and silk screen prints included in this exhibition alongside my recent work were produced at the beginning of my career as an artist some thirty years ago. Hence the title, Now & Then.
During the exhibition I'll be staging two demonstrations in the gallery. The first on Friday 4th April the focus will be on using acrylics in a loose, expressiveway. The second, on Wednesday 9th, will be concerned with how to involve other materials with acrylic media in order to add depth and energy to a painting. Both demonstrations will start at 11am, should last about a couple of hours and there will be no charge for admission.
Demonstrations: Friday 4th April 11am - 1pm Expressive Acrylics
Wednesday 9th April 11am -1pm Mixed Media
Open Tuesday-Sunday 10am to 4pm
