Random Acrylics exhibition at Wickersley Library

by | 17 May 2024 | Art, Hobbies, Rotherham

Wickersley Library is pleased to present Random Acrylics – a free exhibition in June courtesy of local artist Peter Thornton-Smith.

The exhibition takes place in the library from 3rd to 28th June and will feature a wide range of styles and techniques.

Peter will also be running two free Saturday Starter Workshops on 8th and 22nd June in the Media Room. He will reveal the benefits of working with acrylics compared with other media; how you can start a painting yet have no idea of what the result will be and how to use weird household objects to create a layered and even textured picture.

There will also be a couple of anecdotes explaining how potential disasters were turned around and the joy that that can create. You will leave with enough knowledge of techniques and kit plus inspiration to carry on back at home.

Numbers are strictly limited, so if interested ring the library on 01709 544134 to reserve your free place. Materials will be supplied, and hot and cold drinks are available as well.

Pete added: “I really appreciate the support being given by Kirsty and the Library Services for this event and hope you will support them. I will be on site each Tuesday at 10.00am as well if you fancy a chat.”

Peter is a member of the SAA (Supporting All Artists) and has been inspired by Mathew Palmer, Bill Lupton and John Connelly over the years.
