This very popular exhibition in the Barn Gallery 'A breath of fresh air' by Haidee Jo Summers continues until 23 November. During the exhibition Haidee-Jo has been demonstrating her work in oils. This continues on 9 November when her demonstration will be portraiture and on 12 and 22 November her subject will be a Venetian landscape, a studio painting from her recent plein work in Venice. The demonstrations begin at about 11.am - all are welcome.
In the Crew Yard Gallery we have THE art OF CHRISTMAS which continues until 24 December. As usual this popular treat has a focus on the unusual and the inspirational, this year we include and exhibition of work from the Midlands Potters Association.
In the Image Gallery it is now the turn of Jonathan Horrocks with an exhibition called 'Black and Light'. Most of Jonathan's landscape photography is produced in colour, but this exhibition has a focus on his black and white work. Without colour the role of composition becomes greater, which as you will see, is something at which Jonathan excels. The exhibition continues until 2nd November.
Each year we work with the village magazine, the Calverton Echo, to organise a painting competition for village primary schools. Entries were invited for a painting to represent the title 'A Grand Day Out'. Hundreds of very good entries were received, making it difficult to select the winners, whilst proving what a talented place Calverton is. Well done to the winners.
