For the first time since 1999, I am not taking part in Oxfordshire’s visual arts festival, Artweeks, this year, 2018.
This will be a disappointment to my ‘regular’ visitors – and frankly, it’s a disappointment to me – but I’m allowing myself a year off in 2018. I’m having a well-earned rest!
I like to keep the walls fresh for regular visitors, and I don’t have what I consider to be enough new paintings to show you this May, due to a number of private commissions. Also I have been busy making paper mache birds and animals including a badger, a hare, and a sperm whale! These have been extremely popular and I have received commissions for specific species.
New works on the walls in the past 12 months include:
The Life & Works of Vincent van Gogh took many weeks to paint, but what fun it was to distill his output onto one sheet of paper.
State birds of the USA shows each US state’s adopted avian emblem.
Buried Treasure is a painting about life and death and the real value of things.
Artweeks in Eynsham 2018
There is plenty of MARVELLOUS STUFF to see in Eynsham! As I have done every year, I have created a village ‘trail map’ so you can easily find your way round to see the paintings, sculptures, pottery, textiles and other spectacular creations from the village’s artists:
- Nick Lewis – paintings & prints – showing in Artweeks for the first time!
- Peter Shrimpton – sculpture
- Suzy Wright – textiles: fibre art & embroidery – showing in Artweeks for the first time!
- Eynsham Arts Group – various media – I will be showing a few paintings here
- Eric White – pastel paintings & mixed media
- Alison Holmans – pottery: stoneware & raku – showing in Artweeks for the first time!
- Julia Loken – botanical watercolours
