Ellesmere Art Exhibition 2016

Ellesmere Art Exhibition 2016

Ellesmere College will be holding the fifth National Art Exhibition and sale of works, with more than 80 professional artists and sculptors exhibiting over 300 pieces from Wednesday 1st June through to Sunday 5th June. The preview evening, which takes place on Wednesday 1st June 7.30 - 9.00pm, promises to be a fabulous evening.

We are very excited to announce that this year's exhibition will feature 30 original paintings and sculptures by comedian and TV presenter Harry Hill. Harry, whose wife is also an artist, has been painting privately, as a hobby, for over 20 years. His unique works show a parallel universe where celebrity and nature come together in surreal landscapes..

On Friday 3rd June, we are offering the opportunity to take part in a contemporary drawing workshop with returning professional artist Sonja Benskin-Mesher RCA:

'Draw what you see, then see what you draw'. A day to investigate and approach drawing in its broadest and most experimental sense.

£30 per person

Prices include the cost of materials and light refreshments.

Times of exhibition:

• Preview evening: Wednesday 1st June 7.30 - 9.00pm

• Thursday 2nd - Saturday 4th June - 11.00am - 9.00pm

• Sunday 5th June - 11.00am - 2.00pm

If you would like to participate in any of the workshops then please contact Olivia Beckett on 01691 626541 or by email: olivia.beckett@ellesmere.com
