Nearly there!

Lost Horizon, mixed media

Five days to go and the show is getting on the road — paintings are delivered to their various exhibitions and cannot be tweaked or tinkered with any more !

You will be able see some of my work in the Open Studios flagship exhibition at The Base, Greenham Common Business Park, Newbury – open daily from this Saturday and throughout May, 11-5pm.

My studio space is a shared one with Rock Paper Scissors at 26 The Croft, Hungerford. This year the collective features the sculptor Janet Ford, and painter and printer, Shirley Cartey. The studio will be open every weekend, including bank holidays, 11-5pm. Entry is free and there is no obligation to buy, but we would love you to come along and have a browse.

On show this weekend


Very pleased to be exhibiting some of my work this weekend at the Old Bluecoat School Art Experience Exhibition in Thatcham. The exhibition is one of many events taking place during Thatcham’s Arts Festival running until 19th October and will be open this weekend, Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th, 10am-4pm.

This is one of five pieces I have put into the exhibition. It’s a mixed media painting entitled ‘Clear Vase’ painted in the spring when there was colour and light in abundance.


Hanging on a different wall


So pleased to say this little painting has sold – it was one of several produced when I was at a painting workshop in Sidmouth during the summer. The memory of it is filled with sun baked days, screaming seagulls (who can steal a sandwich at lightening speed!) and meeting new artists. We were working with acrylic paints and inks, using 4” brushes and old credit cards!

The painting was sold during the regular Newbury Art Group exhibition in West Berks Community Hospital, with a percentage of the sale going to the Friends of the hospital. The exhibition changes every six weeks and there is always something worth seeing there.

New work on show


Just put several pieces of my work into Kintbury Art Exhibition, including this one, as yet unframed, painted when I was in Sidmouth this summer. It is a mixed media piece, worked with acrylic paints, inks and oil pastels.

The exhibition is raising funds for The Friends of St Mary’s Church in Kintbury and is open Saturday 8th September, 10.30-8.30pm and Sunday 9th, 10.30-4pm.

Happy holidays


Just spent two lovely days at a mix media workshop in Sidmouth, Devon. Splashing around acrylic paints and inks, letting accidents happen and become integral to the painting. #chrisforsey #eastdevonartacademy
