Corridor Arts Trail and Belper Food Festival July 2012

This image copyright Margaret Rose

July 2nd 2012 - work is being installed in venues around Belper this week.  
I will have a painting in the window of Briggs and Sayers Solicitors on the A6 opposite the pedestrian crossing.  The theme is to re-use a piece of work.  The work is a large canvas and has quite a long history having been abandoned many years ago.  It has been reworked for the Corridor Arts trail.

I paint portraits from life.  I have had to recruit another model to rework this piece.

Sunday 23rd October 2011 World Heritage Discovery Days

BAM  Belper Artists and Makers were all together for this one day exhibition. We had fantastic weather for this late October weekend. It was good to see so many people out and about, to catch up with friends not seen for some time and to meet many new ones.  Strutts Centre gave us space for this one day exhibition of work so thanks to them.  The centre is run entirely by volunteers and they are always looking for more new people. There are still lots of things to do this coming weekend as part of theestivities for the World Heritage site.
