Eagle Gallery Open Studios


The Eagle Gallery will be holding 'How We Do It' Open Studios from Monday 21st May - Thursday 14th June and I'll be exhibiting with 5 other artists at Cottage Farm Nurseries, 312 Cople Road, Cardington MK44 3SH as part of this event (see poster above for dates and the map below!). I'll be at the nurseries painting on Saturday June 2nd and Saturday June 9th so please feel free to come along and interrupt!

A highlight of the Eagle Gallery’s ‘How We Do It’ exhibition is a three-day event, over the Bank Holiday, of artists’ demonstrations. This drop-in event features demonstrations on portrait painting, printmaking, collage, painting with wool fibres, watercolour, ceramics, stitching and experimenting with acrylic, culminating on Monday afternoon with an illustrated talk by architect and artist Anthony Mackay on designing a city. I'll painting and sketching throughout Monday at the Gallery, hopefully outside!

The exhibition itself runs from May 21 to June 14 centres around explanatory statements from our artists and contains our normal range of art, ceramics, glass and jewellery as well as cards and unframed work in browsers.

For those who like to get out and about there are also 8 open studios to visit, providing the opportunity to talk to artists in their working environment and see a wider range of their work.
