Come meet Ashley & Janie at 'Open Studios', Cornwall

2nd - 23rd June at the Shire Hall, Bodmin
(above the Visitors Information Centre)

Ashley is collaborating with textile artist Janie M McDonald and they will be transporting their studios to Bodmin's Shire Hall once again.   You will be able to see them both  working 'Live' alongside the backdrop of their work, over the 3 week period.  

Ashley is very excited about exhibiting his latest work, inspired by Paul Auster's book, New York Trilogy. 'City of Glass 1' (one of the prize winning paintings for the Canvas & Cream competition) will be on display along with a number of new pieces that have never been shown before.  Ashley is currently working towards his prizewinning exhibition, at Canvas & Cream in London in November and these paintings will be crucial to the series. (See recent posts with images and Ashley's thought process about the new work.) There will also be a good selection of paintings from his Cornish series on view.

Janie's work is very different:she uses a wide range of art materials and incorporates textile elements,colour and stitch into her work. Ashley and Janie first showed their work together at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in 2010.

During ‘Open Studios’, Ashley is runnning a family friendly workshop 'Learn to Paint in Oils' .Come along with your children (or on your own) for a fun and informative 2 hour workshop, where you will learn about colour and the basics of how to paint in oils.
