Ian Ridley Watercolour Exhibition
Exhibition of Stunning Watercolours
27th January – 24th February
From January 27th for four weeks, Shenstone library will be hosting an exhibition showcasing the excellent works of popular Midlands watercolour artist Ian Ridley.
We’re delighted to hosting this exhibition at our art gallery which sits in our brand new Coffee Shop.
Ian, based in rural Worcestershire, is well known in The Midlands and beyond. He was elected to be a member of the prestigious Birmingham Watercolour Society in 2013 and has been involved over the last few years in the “apictureforhealth” charity in Worcestershire. Examples of the quality of his work: in 2014 one of his paintings gained a runners up award in an international “Artist of the Year” competition sponsored and judged by Winsor and Newton; in 2015 he gained a highly commended award in the “Artist” magazine’s Artist of the Year competition; in 2017 Daler and Rowney awarded one of his watercolours 2nd prize in Artistinfo’s annual “Artist of the Year” international competition. He is also a regular tutor at the Centre of England Arts Centre he also does demonstrations and runs workshops for art societies throughout the Midlands
The exhibition will open on 27th of January and run for a month. I’m sure that Ian’s work will enhance the library gallery walls and be a pleasure to visit. All work on display will be for sale and they are not as expensive as they would be in a commercial gallery. So please drop in, borrow a book, enjoy a coffee and view the exhibition.
Where: Shenstone Library Art Gallery
Exhibition Runs: Saturday January 27th 2018 – Saturday February 24th 2018
