2023 was a year off exhibiting for me, as I embraced the opportunity to take part in a long course at the St.Ives School of Painting, entitled 'The Porthmeor Programme'. It involved going to St.Ives 8 times during the year, and experiencing different approaches and ideas from various tutors. I loved it. It has expanded and deepened my art practice and I'm really looking forward to developing this through my painting over the coming year(s).
I will be exhibiting again in 2024, in Cornwall aswell as Leamington Spa, as follows (more dates may be added later):
Saturday 4 to Friday 10 May at the Salthouse Gallery, St.Ives. This is a group show alongside my fellow graduates from the Porthmeor Programme in 2023.
Friday 31 May - Saturday 8 June at the Borlase Smart Room, Porthmeor Studios, St.Ives School of Painting. (a group show, as above)
In Leamington Spa:
Friday 28 June - Thursday 4 July - at the Glasshouse Studio, Jephson Gardens, Leamington Spa - this is part of Warwickshire Open Studios, and I will be exhibiting with 3 other artists. More info to follow nearer the time..
I also currently have a painting in the Herbert Art Gallery, Coventry (2 Feb - 3 March), part of the Coventry Art Societies exhibition.
