In my usual, last-minute way (I blame it entirely on a long-anticipated visit from the Australian branch of the family) attached below is an Invitation to a Private View. For tomorrow...
I'm excited to say, that after several years of delays, FINALLY my lovely friends from The Art Pool and I are holding our very first joint exhibition.

You are warmly invited to join us for drinks and nibbles at the

Willes Road, Leamington Spa
The Art Pool is a collective of four Warwickshire artists, all long-standing members of Leamington Studio Artists, two of whom are or have been, studio holders at East Lodge.
The group, originally formed in 2019, arose naturally through friendship and a love of all things creative. Having very different life experiences, it soon became apparent that their strength lay in a shared appreciation of the health benefits, both mental and physical, to be derived from creative expression. This is reflected in the way they endeavour to support each other through the inevitable ups and downs of life, and finding a creative outlet for handling the strong feelings that we all experience from time to time.
Working in a wide range of media, everything from acrylic to pastel, watercolour to photography, resin, pen and ink, they have very different styles, they are united in their love of nature, exploring the natural world and striving to give expression to the complex feelings that are evoked.
Making A Splash is their first shared exhibition, and will showcase this joyous coming together of four mutually supportive, experienced, talented artists.
