November activities

The next Friday evening demo will be held on 10th Nov in Market Hill Rooms from 8.00 to 10.00pm when Ann Massing will be demonstrating the art of East Asian Ink and Watercolour and the subject will be “The Four Friends : Plum Blossom, Wild Orchid, Bamboo and Chrysanthemum”.

Chinese brush painting, or ink painting, also known in Japan as  sumi-e, is an expression or reflection of the painter’s personality through a unique art form that has been practiced for over 1,000 years.   Ann has been painting in this style since a trip to China in 1986. She was born in Indiana, raised in Illinois USA and now lives and works in Cambridge where she has a studio at St Barnabas Press.   Her work is mostly inspired by the natural world and our relationship to it.  Ann also makes prints, having become captivated by the techniques involved and their possibilities for self-expression.
