ART and Exhibitions
Bell, Lucy, Coventry Evening Telegraph (England)
Painters set for a sell-out show:
MEMBERS of Warwickshire Watercolourists stage an exhibition of their work at Coleshill town hall this Saturday and Sunday, 10am-4pm.
The artists, from Coventry and Warwickshire, sold over pounds 2,000 of pictures at their popular first exhibition last year and are hoping for a similar success. They also want their pictures to encourage other people to have a go at painting.
Artists will be at the show all weekend to talk to visitors and explain their paintings.
Susan Moore, of the group, said: "We have been meeting at Coleshill Civic Centre on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings for the past three years. Trevor Boult, who lives at Balsall Common, takes the classes and is a well-known Warwickshire artist who has had work commissioned by the Queen.
"As well as helping each artist individually, Trevor talks about his work and demonstrates his techniques in the classes. He has also had groups of artists working outside, come rain or shine, to experience working from life.
"We hope lots of people will visit the exhibition. As well as selling paintings at the exhibition, we hope to encourage more people who have thought they would like to paint - to actually have a go!"
Exhibitors include Coventry artists Claire Clarke, Paula Bowskill, Harry Gurney and Linda Meakin, Susan Moore of Fillongley, plus Balsall artists Sandra Ford, Gill Wiley, Carol Morgan, Michael Grice and Jean Mauger. …
