AN OIL ACCEPTED FOR THE EXHIBITION AT
PATCHINGS ART FESTIVAL 2018
06/07/18The festival at Patchings Art Centre in Calverton, Nottingham is a major event on the art calendar.
Running over 4 days, it showcases a huge variety of creative materials to try and buy, as well as
artists demonstrating their skills in the grounds.
'The Artist' and 'Leisure Painter' magazines organise an exhibition as part of the event, including
categories for both amateurs and professionals. 70 paintings are chosen for each category from
an international submission and I am delighted to announce that I have had a painting selected
for the professional category.
This will be my 6th year in a row to have work selected and I'm doubly pleased as this painting was
the result of a frustrating course cancellation in March this year due to heavy snow!
So, while I was sorry to have to send my class home a day early less we all got stranded on the
edge of Exmoor, it gave me the opportunity to go out with my sketchbook and camera and eventually
paint this. Another cloud with a silver lining perhaps!
The Art Festival runs from the 12th - 15th July 2018, while the exhibition will continue until the
12th August 2018. Please visit www.patchingsartcentre.co.uk/patchings-festival/ for full details
