Innovative multi-media exhibition at Retford Hub

by | 19 December 2017 | Art, Community Event, Retford

The Hub is delighted to announce that the next exhibition in its series will be of works by local artist, Carol Eason. Carol’s work will be on show from 25th November until early January.

This is an excellent opportunity for everyone to see the Pilgrim Visitor Centre and choose Christmas presents (including gift-wrapped hampers), as well as to view the inspiring exhibition.

Carol Eason gained a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art from Lincoln University, as a mature student, in 2007. Since then, inspired by the increasing pressures of today’s childhood, she has taken as her theme ‘Today’s Children at Play’. She has been producing mixed media paintings, vibrant with colour and movement, with a thread of reality within each piece.

Carol is also passionate about drawing and printing, using various techniques, such as copperplate etching, drypoint, collagraphs and linocutting. She uses her sketching and photography skills to capture nature through the seasons, reaffirming a love of colour; this is a huge influence on, and resource for, new work.

Belief in the power of community has inspired her to run free arts and crafts family drop-ins, whenever and wherever possible in Retford. She has also helped with school projects locally, and runs workshops in drawing and printing throughout the year.

Amongst other venues, Carol’s work has been exhibited at the Harley Gallery Welbeck, Wirksworth Festival, Ferns Open Hull, Doncaster Museums Open, the Saatchi Gallery London, and the Millennium Gallery St Ives.
An exciting exhibition awaits you!
