Pat Watling: An Artist’s Showcase

18th – 24th January 2017 

  • The exhibition will be a selection of artwork from over 30 years of Pat’s life as an artist. There will be a wide range of work on display, including abstracts, portraiture, landscapes and still life. The art work appears in a variety of mediums such as oils, pastels, acrylics and water colours, to name but a few. Amongst these pieces are many beautiful paintings of the Cotswolds and surrounding areas. Pat’s work also includes Oriental and African influences that were composed during her time travelling.
  • The exhibition will open on the 18th of January at 6pm, and all are welcome to attend for a glass of wine and to take a look at the wide variety of work on display. The artwork will be available for sale with all the proceeds going to the Alzheimer’s Society. The more iconic pieces however, will be available through a silent auction that will end on Tuesday the 24th of January at 6pm. A glass of wine will be offered to all those present.
