As promised in my last post, I wanted to let you know the details of the English Riviera Summer Open Exhibition that is currently previewing in Torquay. It officially opens today, and will run until the 27th September at Unit 5 Fleet Walk, Fleet Street, Torquay, TQ2 5EB. Opening hours are Saturday and Weekdays 11am - 5pm; Sundays 11am - 4pm. To view this exhibition on line go to, https://www.art-hub.co.uk/ex/erso20 We have been informed by the organisers that this event will be part of Devon Open Studios and details of that can be found in the Devon Open Studios brochure, page 50. The brochure is online and can be found on https://www.devonartistnetwork.co.uk
Gosh, it has been a while since I posted last. So what have I been up to in the interim?
I have been in the studio, naturally, and there are new works to show you, next time. In this news page, I wanted to let you know that I will be showing in an exhibition in Torquay very soon. The Artizan Gallery will be joining with Devon Open Studios at their venue in Fleet Walk. I am waiting to hear what has been selected from the three below and then will be delivering them probably next week. Of the pieces, Lakeside IV and Tidelines II are not recent works, I think they were created a couple of years ago, but Embrace The Horizon IV, is a new one this year. Lakeside is a small gouache on paper and framed under glass. Tidelines II is rendered in oils on a canvas stretcher and unframed; whereas Embrace The Horizon IV, is on a cradled wood panel and in a white floating frame.
In these uncertain times, I’m not sure if there will be a private view, but I will post as soon as I know more.
Today I want to mention an annual exhibition that I am usually involved in for the Westward Ho! & Bideford Art Society. The exhibition would normally take place at the Burton Art Gallery in Bideford, Devon, about nine miles away from my home. This year is not ‘normal’ though, and for the very first time we are producing an online gallery that can be viewed until the end of December of this year. Details in the online invitation above. Please do have a look. I have two paintings exhibited, as seen above, from my Oh Australia series. If anyone wishes to buy one or both, I can arrange shipping as an extra cost. I hope to be able to donate 10% of any sales to help with the Australian restoration fund following their devastating fires.
