Last week I went to look at a local art exhibition, I went last year too. I do enjoy seeing what other people are up to and this exhibition being local made it easy for me. It was put on at St Leonard's church by the Bridgnorth and District Art Society.
I really enjoyed looking at lots of lovely pieces but one or two stood out to me, as often is the case. As soon as I saw this picture, I thought of moving in with Andy and the hours we spent watching the spuggies in the garden so it was meaningful. Also intriguing was that it had been done in coloured pencil, which is not a well known medium in exhibitions!
So I bought it, it is called "The Gathering" and is by a local artist, Sandie Philips.
I waited a few days to pick it up as I didn't want to mess up an exhibition but got to meet the artist when I did. A further coincidence is that she told me these are the railings up by the hospital. It made me laugh as I seem to have spent so much time there this year. She also had some other lovely work and tells me that her rendition of Bridgnorth won the "People's Choice" award too, so no doubt she will featured in the local Journal next week. It is good to see talented people get a little recognition. Furthermore, the other people I met all seemed really interesting. So, hopefully at some point, I may well go along and join in with a few of their evenings. I also have another piece of art for the walls :D
