Our Venue #9 is the newly opened Sanders Painting and Sculpture on Pickwick Road where brothers Jonathan and Michael Sanders will be exhibiting their beautiful art.
Jonathan Sanders –
Jonathan has painted since leaving art college but has also become, “fascinated with the lost wax method of casting in bronze, aware that I am carrying on a tradition predating Roman times”.
The Peacock Committee would like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved in the 2017 Peacock Arts Trail! We can’t believe the 9 days are over already!
To our artists – a great big thank you for all your hard work and enthusiasm. It takes a huge amount of effort to prepare for an exhibition like this, which we know you do whilst juggling busy lives.
To our visitors – it is wonderful to know that there are so many of you who appreciate the arts! Thank you for visiting in record numbers, and we can’t wait to see some of the results of the workshops and other activities that you were involved in. We hope you will hang on to your brochure as it makes an excellent gift buying guide to support local artists.
Here are a few of our photos from the Trail. Please feel free to share yours with us, especially if you made something fabulous on a workshop.
We’re halfway through the Peacock Arts Trail 2017 and it’s been a whirlwind!
The Peacock’s have been out and about on the Trail and we are absolutely blown away by the talent on display. We can’t thank our artists enough for making the Trail so fantastic, their hard work makes it such a success!
And a success it seems to be…everywhere we’ve visited we’re hearing incredibly positive things about visitor numbers and engagement. We also can’t wait to see the creative outcomes of the workshops and drop in activities that have been running through the course of the week.
What has inspired you so far? Have you joined in on a workshop? Where do you plan to visit next? Share your journey with us on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.
But first, time to sit down, have a cup of tea, and browse through our photos for a recap (and inspire those yet to hit the Trail to shake a tail feather)…
In the pretty little village of Slaughterford you’ll find something a little bit different in Dominic Clare’s studio with large sculptures in wood and sometimes steel and slate.
Dominic’s art draws upon a wide variety of cross-cultural sources: from his African birthplace to nature and ancient history. He uses a chainsaw, shot blasting and burning techniques to transform large pieces of wood.
One last venue in Holt where you can find two artists – painting, printmaking, sculpture and glass all under one roof!
Brian is a sculpture who’s work mainly depicts the figure in motion. His work is often cast in bronze and patinated, whilst other pieces are cast in jesomite or white cement and marble dust.
With an interest in texture and colour, Marion is an artist working in acrylic & mixed media she create her diverse paintings. Marion will also be exhibiting her abstract Fine Art prints.
