Exhibiting at The Tinca Gallery, Portishead


Although the exhibition officially ended on Friday 25th July 2014, many of the paintings are still on show for a while longer.

I have not been able to post as many sketches as I had hoped recently as I have been working on the first of my salt marsh paintings for an exhibition in the Tinca Gallery in Portishead from Friday 27June until Friday 25 July.  Also on display will be some of the sketches featured on this blog.

This is an exhibition of work by the Severn Sea Artists of which I am a member so also exhibiting will be painters Alf Stockham, Dawn Sidoli, Stephen Jacobsen (all Royal West of England academicians), ceramicist Tean Kirby and applied artist and designer Janet Haigh.

I hope you can come along.

For more about the artists exhibiting please visit our Severn Sea Artists website.
For opening times please see Tinca’s website.

. . . and once my preparations for the exhibition are all done normal service on this blog will resume!
