“Artists of the Month”

“Artists of the Month”
We get to see what members work on at the Thursday Art Evenings and at exhibitions, but it is great to see all the other work they do and have done in the past.

April - Claire Carr
Claire kindly volunteered to be our first ever ‘Artist of the month’ and brought in examples of her work to show us and to talk about.  Claire has done commissions in the past and does some very unusual painted dolls, none of which we had seen before so we had a chance to view these and find a bit more about how Claire works. You can see more of Claire’s work on her website

May - Richard Brown
Richard unwittingly volunteered to show his works to us in May. He gave us a very informative introduction about his main artistic influence which was his geat uncle, the portrait painter R G Eves and showed examples of his portraits. We looked at various recent pieces of Richard’s work including his winning entry in the 2010 Paint me a Bluebell competition.
