Flora Twort Gallery Opportunities

Exhibition Space available

The Flora Twort Gallery offers an exciting opportunity for local artists, schools and community groups to exhibit their work in a local venue, right in the heart of Petersfield. Whether you are a professional artist or just starting out, this beautiful space, overlooking St Peters Church, is a perfect place to showcase your work to the public and it is now your last chance to do so, as the Gallery will be closed to the public from the end of the season in November.

Dates available: 11 – 29 October

Demonstration: Max Hale-Drawing in Preparation for Painting.

max hale blonde portrait LR

Thursday 28th July , 7.30-9.30 at Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Moggs Mead, Petersfield, GU31 4PY. 

Max gained a Fine Art Degree at the Harrow School of Art. He then became an apprentice illustrator for a London studio but after a few years, he returned to his first love-painting. The post impressionist’s mark making and bold handling of colour has greatly influenced Max’s work. Currently, Max exhibits his paintings, writes for magazines and teaches art to adults.

During the first part of the evening Max intends to talk about his work and influences followed by doing a portrait of one of the members of our group. Do come along and learn more about how to use drawing as a basis for painting.

Everyone welcome. Free to members, £2.00 for non members.

 In response to the Autumn questionnaire, this month we thought we would try something a little different. We have invited 6 artists, all PACS members, who will each do a short presentation. You will have an opportunity to see some of their work, including sketch books and each will give a brief bio and talk about what has inspired their art.

The second half of the evening will be a social, allowing time to catch up with old friends, make new friends, and to ask questions of the 6 presenting artists. Do come along as this promises to be a great evening. There will be refreshments including tea and coffee and wine. 

Free entry to members, a small contribution of £2 for non members.
