One of our members, Vivienne Machell is having her first solo exhibition which starts on Saturday 23rd July. You can see details on the poster to the right of this post and underneath is a sliding display of some of her works. You can also see a few more of her paintings under the ‘Artists’ entry on the top menu.

Below her works are a few words from Vivienne describing her work.

“My work is tonal and realistic and colour is a very important aspect whether it is full on and vibrant or more subtly deployed. Inspiration comes during walks on Royston heath and on holiday, and from old family photographs which are adapted for my portraits. Most of my paintings are acrylic but I also work in oil, watercolour and occasionally pastel.

Trained in Fashion and Textile design, I previously painted on silk and exhibited my silk scarves and ties in local galleries including Wimpole Hall. I now concentrate on painting and am about to have my first solo exhibition at the Royston Museum and Art Gallery this summer. I also exhibit at Curwens Gallery, Royston Art Society, Cambridge District Art Circle and Cambridge Drawing Society.”
