David Clarke, 'September', watercolour 50 x 28 cm
Meet the Artist - 2-3pm
"A very gestural watercolour endeavouring to capture the mood and atmosphere of the month of September," says David Clark. "Intentionally no detail, just visualising the colour and light of a fading summer with as few brush strokes as possible."
Danielle Vaughan | 3 - 4 pm
Danielle Vaughan, Solitary Stag (in Sepia and Turquoise), collage 50 x 50 cm
Meet the Artist: 3 - 4pm
"My practice has two strands," says Danielle Vaughan. "I create collages from ripped paper and platforms for collaborative participatory projects inviting others to work alongside me around societal issues. The connecting thread that runs through both are slices of humanity sifted through a playful lens of medicinal humour.
My work has featured on Sky TV's 'Portrait Artist of The Year' series and is in permanent collections at Blenheim Palace and Leicester Museum & Art Gallery. I was shortlisted for the Market Harborough Museum's Suffragette Art Fund 2019 and recently completed my MA in Fine Art at De Montfort University. My time is divided between working from my home studio in Leicester and running workshops."
Meet the Artist 16, 23 and 30 October
