Event Details




We are a group of artists who share a passion for abstract art, for the process of exploring the power of colour, form and texture.  Our ways of working are often experimental, intuitive and organic and can evoke and are sometimes inspired by the thoughts of landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes.

We all share the joy of discovering meaning through our art whether it is through the echoes of reality or the interplay of the visual dynamics of colour, form and structure.

Each of us work as professional artists in the South West region and have exhibited both regionally and nationally and have a great deal of experience of teaching, giving talks and lectures and demonstrations.

She has shown at the RWA, Cork Street and Bankside Open exhibitions. Facebook  jane.brighton 9862 Instagram  iandjane

While working as an artist Andy has taught in Comprehensive and Adult Education and as an adviser to an art materials company. He works in collage and acrylics and each piece of work develops from particular observation/memory of seascape or landscape. The transience of changing light  and clouds and the permanence of nature can  inspire his  final work.  Andy has shown at the RWA and individual and group shows in the South West and West Midlands. He is a founder member of the Montpellier Group of Artists.
