Event Details

The Mixed media Art Collective 1st Annual Show We are a group of artists who met through a local art class. This show highlights the diverse ways we depict our world through our art and includes paintings done in oils, watercolour, acrylic, pastel and pencil and hand printed linocuts. Mair Hitchings Forever mother and daughter Oil on canvas 10" x 8" unframed/ framed 15" x 13" £250[/caption] I have been painting in oils for over 40 years, first by myself and then with local art groups. I have a deep love of cats and often these are the inspiration for my art. I am fascinated by colour and take great care over the selection and application of different hues. I have successfully exhibited with the Society of Feline Artists for 9 years. Viv Lee-Hynes I am based in the wonderful Forest of Dean and have been painting since about 2011. I've not had any formal training but joined an excellent art group and have enjoyed experimenting with various mediums. I dabbled with watercolour, but my preferred medium now is Pan Pastel with pastel pencils, I have also worked with coloured pencil, scraperboard and silk paints. I put my own interpretation on many varied subjects but landscapes and animals feature strongly in my work. I love the atmosphere and social side of the art group and I am pleased to have the opportunity to exhibit my pictures, now and again, for others to enjoy. Chris Sinden  It was while I was living in Southern Norway that I learned how to cut lino. My earlier prints were local landscapes or humorous subjects. When I moved back to the UK I began to specialise in wildlife. Over the years I have developed an individual collage-style of printing where smaller images butt up against each other to make a larger irregular shaped final picture. Since 2007 I have been exhibiting these complicated linocuts with the Society of Wildlife Artists and in 2015 I was elected a Member of the Society.Pam Callow I have been painting for several years, starting with watercolours and then moving on to include pastel pencils which I found lovely to use. I have since been encouraged to try silk painting and scraperboard which gave me very different insights about the way I worked. My preferred subjects are landscapes and animals and I am attracted to the impact of light and colour in the subject. Jackie Cox I loved drawing as a child and started doing pastel portraits of animals when I was training as an animal nurse. In 1981 I had my first exhibition in Tewkesbury and since then I have exhibited work around the UK and abroad. About 20 years ago I was asked to take over an art class and it was then that I found that my curiosity in trying different mediums and surfaces gave me the valuable experiences I now pass on. I have been fortunate to have won a number of awards and these successes have spurred me on to try further experiments in new mediums, concentrating even more on light, shadows and nuances of colour.
