Hospice exhibition

The St Michaels Hospice summer art exhibition was a great success although the presence of Stuart Farndale was sadly missed by all.
Stuart was the driving force behind the exhibition for the last eight years and credit goes to Sue,his widow for courageously making this years event such a success over £2000 was raised towards the good work of the hospice.
I personally sold two of my paintings and enjoyed helping out over the weekend.
The standard of work exhibited gets better and better each year.
Look out for next years bigger and better summer exhibition!
Next weekend I hope to get some work accepted for the Battle and district arts club exhibition which takes place from 27th July to 4th August at the memorial hall on Battle high street.
I am told that selection for this exhibition can be tough so fingers and toes crossed!

Busy with summer exhibitions

This weekend sees the annual St michaels hospice summer exhibition at Maze Hill St Leonards on sea, I have eight paintings on display amongst a record entry of over 400 works by local artists, 20% of all proceeds go into hospice funds so it is a good cause to support!
The exhibition starts at 10-30am on saturday 14th july and sunday 15th July entry is £1
If you are local to Hastings please support this event and hopefully we will sell lots of pictures.

Also on saturday 14th July I am supporting Pett Parish silent auction in aid of thest Mary & st Peter church by donating a print and a pet portrait promise so good luck to them I hope they raise lots of cash!

I am entering a selection of my work to the Battle and District Arts Group summer exhibition (July27th-August 4th) hopefully they will make it through selection and into the show.
This is a hectic month for me with lots of events to submit completed works to and pressures to complete work for future shows and commissions.

April /May 2007

Since I posted my first blog I have exhibited my work in a joint exhibition with a young abstract painterat the White Rock Gallery Hastings.
The show was a great learning curve for me and although sales did not materialise I made lots of usefiul contacts and was encouraged by visitors comments, thank you.
I am now about to exhibit more works at several open shows throughout the summer and will continue to update my website on a regular basis
