It's that busy time of year again, when various exhibitions co-inside.
First up is The Kimpton Art Show which in its 37th year. This takes place as part of the May festival in the beautiful church in Kimpton Village. I have three pieces on display this year "End of the Shortest Day (21/06/17)", "Live from the Welsh Borders" and "Mum's Penguins". The show began on Friday 4th May and concludes on Monday 7th May.
Concurrently, the Hertford Open also begins this weekend opening today Sunday 6th May running through to Saturday 19th May. I was lucky enough to get all six pieces accepted for this exhibition, which are:- "A Walk in Glasgow", "Through a Window", "The Tree in the Distance", "Winter in Belper", "Telford Way, Luton" and debuting at this show "Cacophony- Once Removed".
With two new pieces still on show at the Eagle Gallery until Friday, that means a total of eleven pieces are on public show this Weekend.
After what seems an absolute age (3 years if you are counting) "Cacophony - Once removed" has been completed. Its a 75% copy of my original piece "Cacophony". Lets play spot the difference....
At last life seems to have settled down a bit and I have some new work to show. Two pieces have just gone on display at the Eagle Gallery in Bedford and will be up for the next four weeks.
Well its been a while, but i've finally managed to add a couple of paintings, including the first of 2017 " Through a Window" as shown above. Having been moving house (and studio) over the last few months, order is finally descending, so hopefully paintings will appear more rapidly soon!
After a mammoth effort, we are pleased to announce the conclusion of the Tads theatre production of Romeo and Juliet. Although a long show, its fair to say that the reviews were "rave". we are pleased to say that the set decoration by Naish Art also went down well.
See the new page showing the work by clicking on the photo below....
We are pleased to announce that three of the four pieces entered in the Hertford Open this year were successful in being accepted for exhibition. They are currently on show at the Cowbridge Halls in Hertford. The successful paintings were, "Broken Road", "Roadside Silhouette" and "Apple Tree Form". This is only the second time that "Apple Tree Form" has been on public display since its premier at the Eagle Gallery in 2014.
Opening tomorrow in Bedford, the new Eagle Gallery Member's exhibition features two of my paintings. They are both in the window (see above on the left hand side). The gallery is open Monday to Friday 10am to 5.30pm.
Today we launch the shop page! An exciting adventure for Naish Art. Unfortunately I can't accept Pay pal yet - would have to upgrade my Weebly account with a monthly charge which would probably not cover costs. - But in time who knows! Also won't let me show how much stock is available without upgrading. Twenty Five Calendars and 50+ off of each of the cards as we launch. So its best to use the contact forms if you want anything in any great quantity.
After the mammoth effort for the Urban and Rural exhibition, we come back to earth with a new piece for the eagle Gallery "Contrast" themed show. This piece on show in Bedford at the Eagle Gallery until 19th November.
Naish Art are pleased to announce an exhibition of new work on for a week in Bedford from September 19th.
and here is the press release....
“URBAN AND RURAL” is a one week show of new paintings by Andrew Naish premiering at the Eagle Gallery in Bedford from 19th -26th September 2015.
The show highlights the dichotomy of our living spaces whether they be Urban or Rural. It also contrasts the natural world with the man-made environment.
Andrew has selected these images as representations of places that have interested him on his travels here and overseas. Painted on uniform canvas sizes and shown on opposite sides of the gallery, he hopes the visitor will examine this dichotomy too.
Previous works by the artist will also be on sale at special show prices for this week only.
The exhibition will be open 10am - 5.30pm (Saturday and weekdays) and Sunday 11am - 4pm. The artist will be in the gallery Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 10am - 1.45, Friday 1.45 pm - 5.30pm and Sunday all day.
