From Saturday 10th August to Sunday 8th September > “Painting from Observation” > by Alan James Thompson

Painting from Observation” by Alan James Thompson in the community gallery, admission free.

I was born in Hyde in 1940, attended The Regional College of Art, Manchester. 1957-1961 where I studied painting. Since leaving college I taught part-time in various colleges and adult education centres while continuing to paint. I have exhibited regularly mainly in the North West.I  have been a member of the Manchester Academy and have shown work in the Royal Academy summer exhibition and at the Royal Scottish Academy. In 1989 I gave up teaching in order to paint full time. I draw and paint exclusively from observation mostly landscape, urban and rural. These are a few examples of my work”
