November Exhibitions and Artist in Residence, Save Cork Street Campaign

The pace has been fast and furious.  The autumn light and the transience of the richly coloured leaves have been magical to pastel.  I’ve also been in the throes of exhibition organising:

Wimbledon Art Studios – my studio show, 22-25th November (Studio 402) where I will be showing my pastels of the Diamond Jubilee, Olympics and Paralympics

Daggett Gallery, Tite Street Group – Kensington Church St – 20-24th November.  I will showing mainly still life work in oils

My work is also on show at Moorwood Art, Bruton, Somerset and I was invited to participate in Art for All, Medici Gallery, Cork Street 6-23 December 2012

Yesterday I was Artist in Residence for the Save Cork Street Awareness Evening   

I pastelled  Cork Street over 24 hours.  During the day, the weather was largely overcast and the lovely and subtle London greys were pronounced.   I was interested by the volume of traffic hurtling down the road and the reflections on the cars and vans.  Cork Street has a life of its own when it gets dark. The gallery windows, street lights and spotlit buildings and flags have vibrancy, colour and life.
