Exhibition Dates August 2016

I am thrilled to have work in three exhibitions taking place in August this year.

Unity Exhibition Exchange Place, Sheffield, from 18th – 25th August

Magazine collage 'Oranjezon Forest, The Netherlands' will be part of the Unity Exhibition at Exchange Place, Sheffield, from 18th – 25th August. The exhibition will be open every day from 10 – 4.

Unity is a direct response to the EU referendum, which has seen a vote for Britain to leave the European Union. The immediate aftermath from this has seen a nation disordered, bewildered and divided.

We all hope the negotiations that take place over the coming two years will steady the uncertainties in the UK. However, in the short term we seek to look past our differences and turn to creative action – celebrating the virtues of unity, what unity means and what it can provide in times of uncertainty.

Dame Catherine 23rd Annual Summer Art Exhibition August Bank Holiday Weekend 2016

Now in its 23rd year, the Dame Catherine Arts Summer Exhibition brings the sleepy Derbyshire village of Ticknall alive as hundreds of buyers flock to view over 1000 pieces of original art from over 200 artists.

For artists, this is a unique opportunity to be involved in the biggest art show outside of London, and to exhibit alongside professional and celebrated local and national artists.

Located in the picturesque village of Ticknall, the Dame Catherine Arts Summer Exhibition takes place over August Bank Holiday weekend and offers buyers a unique opportunity to pick up an original piece of art! Affordable artwork combine with artist demonstrations, children’s workshops and the delights of the vintage tea rooms make this a very special event and an enjoyable day out.

I have four collages included in the exhibition 

Dart - Emperor Dragonfly At Riverside

Flit - Satyr Butterfly On Thistle

Buzz - Bumble Bee On Lavender

Flutter - Comma Butterfly On Japonica
