CURRENTLY EXHIBITING



Wendy Fountaine 

Gallery 1

Wendy started painting when she retired, initially using the intuitive method, then moving onto pastels, acrylic and oil. However, pastel is her favourite medium. 

When living in Devon, Wendy and another artist started an organisation promoting local artists. This involved all the marketing, and securing venues for their exhibitions. This was very successful,and only stopped when her Husband became ill.

She loves Somerset, especially Burnham, and enjoys painting landscapes and seascapes, intuitively and from memory.

Joe McCabe

Gallery 2

Tue 10th Oct- Sat 21st Oct

 

Although Joe has had no formal training as an artist, his passion and skill as a draughtsman can be seen in this diverse body of work.

Joe began by drawing cartoons some of which he has sold. After retirement, Joe took a variety of art courses and developed his range of mediums and styles.

On show in the gallery we have a few examples of Joe's work over the last 30 years and choosing which pieces to exhibit has been a difficult process, but one which hopefully reflects something of Joe's quirky and humorous character
