November 6th – Trevor Price – Artist/Printmaker
The artist Trevor Price (born 1966) specialises in drypoints and etchings that are handmade and hand printed in his studios in London and St. Ives. He studied at Falmouth and Winchester Schools of Art and at the age of 28 was elected a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and is currently Vice President of the society. Trevor exhibits widely throughout Europe, with regular solo shows of both paintings and original prints. In 2011 at Printfest, which is North Britain's only annual art fair dedicated to printmaking, Trevor was invited as 'Printmaker of the Year'. Trevor describes himself as an artist/printmaker, and not just an artist. It is the opportunity to experiment and the diversity of technique that draws him to the medium. Printmaking can be as simple as making some scratches on a piece of metal and inking those grooves and the burr they create (drypoint), to highly sophisticated multi-plate etchings. Variations/experimentation in printmaking can be endless.
December 4th - Martin Bates - Artist
Retired art lecturer and practising artist exhibiting regularly in mixed and solo shows. His quirky drawings and paintings display the humorous way he deals with life. Since the age of fourteen Martin has displayed his interest in the delightfully and forceful power of words - repetition, alliteration and rhyme.
The (brief) AGM and Christmas party will also be held tonight – all welcome
