UPDATE: the webinar (mentioned below) was recorded and is now available to watch at:
Still in lockdown and so far this year has brought more postponements/cancellations of exhibitions including the Bucks Art Society Centenary which I mentioned below. It is still closed but the museum has put videos of the exhibition and some of the artists talking about their work on their website. They have also organised a webinar which I will be taking part non 4th February at 7pm. There will be Sue Shave (museum Director) and Mel Czapski (curator of art) from the Museum, myself to talk about Bucks Art Society and some of the work and Carolyn Ross, daughter of the Artist Tony Hart, to talk about an exhibition of his work which is also being shown at the museum.
To take part go to the museum's website to book a place: www.buckscountymuseum.org It's free but please feel free to make a donation to support the museum.
Hopefully you will be able to visit the exhibition in person after the lockdown ends.
Oh my gosh, what a year we have had! I hope you are keeping well and are not too disappointed with the Christmas restrictions.
After several postponements the Bucks Art Society Centenary exhibition at the Bucks County museum finally opened on the 16th December only to close 2 days later because of new tier restrictions. It looks absolutely wonderful and it was lovely to see art in the flesh rather than images online. The Exhibition is due to re-open in the new year from 7thJanuary – 20th March, Covid permitting. It is well worth a visit if you can make it, just remember you have to book online at the museum website www.buckscountymuseum.org . Entry is free but the museum would appreciate any donations.
In the gallery there are also some of Tony Hart’s artwork, do you remember him from the T.V. with his assistant Morph?
The centenary exhibition has caused me to do some interesting advertising. I had an interview with Sandra Smith for the Vale Life magazine (in the current issue - see below) and an interview for radio which I was quite nervous about. It wasn’t as bad as I thought and it will be aired on Wycombe Sound once the Centenary exhibition is reopened.
In other news I have written a tutorial for ‘Paint’ magazine which is produced by the SAA (Society for All Artists) and it will be in the January issue. I was also invited to join the Oxford Art Society which I have accepted.
