A Trio of Exhibitions

Over the last month or so, I have curated a trio of exhibitions based on Leigh on Sea here at the gallery.

The drinks reception of the final one is today, so I thought I would share some photos and some information about what's been going on.

The first exhibition was that of Malcolm Perry - a local artist, who's work has proved incredibly popular over the last year here at miss annabel dee*.  Perry's paintings are vibrant and fun.  

On the private view, Malcolm also was painting LIVE!  Although he didn't get much done as he was chatting with all the people who had come to admire his work!

Malcolm's work was also featured in the local paper advertising the three exhibitions:

The second exhibition was by Robin Goodier, another miss annabel dee* favourite - who is a headteacher and a painter in his spare time.  As you can see his style is totally different from Malcolm's.  It's incredibly refreshing to see the same subject matter painted in such different ways.

Last but not least is Paul Alcock.  Paul paints in 'plein air', which means he will sit outside on location painting - which I admire - especially in extreme weather.  I have a card of his from last year where he was sitting on the seafront in the snow, painting the palm trees!  That's what I call a dedicated artist!

I love Paul's work too, again it's the same subject matter and again so different from the other two artists.

(more pics to come)

Paul's exhibition runs until 21st November, so please come down and have a look for yourself.

Are you an artist?  Would you like to exhibit here at miss annabel dee*? We would
love to hear from you!  Send over some pictures of your work and we will go from there:
