by | 8 July 2021 | Art, Community facility, Worksop

Don’t miss Derrick Spence’s latest exhibition, open at Bassetlaw Museum, Grove Street, Retford, until Saturday 17th July.
This exhibition is a retrospective one which covers the main genres of styles and media he has used over the years. It features portraits, landscapes and drawings of animals.
Derrick is a retired art teacher who spent 32 years in the profession, teaching all manner of artistic styles and media. During the course of his teaching career, he concentrated on honing self-taught skills in pencil, pastel and pen and ink work. Detailed pen and ink work is a trademark style of his, often then adding a water colour wash to the original or a photocopy.
Much of Derrick’s work is based on photographs. He adores big cats, especially tigers. For the past three years he has been a member of the Association of Animal Artists.
