8th April - 16TH May 2023

Our annual oil themed exhibition in the 2023 calendar. This exhibition seeks to display an exciting and diverse collection of original oil paintings which encompass or inspire a sense of   euphoria and will include submissions from Members of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI).

The description ‘chiaroscuro’ in the terms of painting refers to clear tonal contrasts which are often used to   suggest the volume and modelling of subjects being depicted. Artists who are famed for the use of chiaroscuro include Leonardo da Vinci and Caravaggio.

 The exhibition will include original artwork selected from Members of the affiliated Institutes and Societies connected with the Federation of British Artists.

This year has been a busy one.  I have been working intensively on illustrating '"The Beanpole Chronicles" and getting it printed and published.  We finally completed the process in September and it was published on 22nd September.

There has been an exhibition of the original illustrations at the prestigious Dean Clough galleries in Halifax, UK.

A future show is promised early in 2023 at Water Street Gallery, Todmorden. More info about this later.

Warley Museum.

We curate constantly changing exhibitions in the museum. This year we have had special shows for the Queen's Jubilee and also to mark the Queen's passing.

Great fun was had at the "Smallest Art Exhibition in the world" in "The Smallest Museum in the World" drinking tiny drinks and eating tiny food.
