From Saturday 23rd March to Sunday 21st April > “Joint Exhibition” > by the “Group of Fourteen”.

Due to an unexpected last minute change to our exhibition programme we now have a “Joint-Exhibition” by a number of local artists, “the Group of Fourteen, in the community gallery, admission free.

Fourteen local artists and friends have got together to put on this art exhibition.

Each artist has a unique style which will make for a very interesting show and most of these artists do also accept commissions, so if you like their style your chance to chat to them will be at the preview on Saturday 23rd March.

Awaiting more information, images and links. Website/Facebook Link >

Paintings by Joyce Vick

Joyce studied at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts in London. She won an Arts in Industry Award to train in wallpaper and textile design with A. Sanderson & Sons studio in Perivale, travelling abroad to study forms of design.

Working in their studio, she and her partner supplied the finished design art work directly to the manufacturer, Sanderson, Vantona, Vymura and many other companies.
