Ann Blockley On Front Cover of The Artist Magazine

Ann, who has her new DVD with us and her new book out this month as well as a one woman exhibition is on the front Cover of the new edition of The Artist Magazine - out now. Inside is a hugely informative article on her experimental approach to flower painting.

Ann has just come back from the Patchings Art Festival where she was a huge hit demonstrating in the big marquee.

The magazine article  features some pictures from her book which are also  to be featured in her forthcoming major one woman show. The exhibition features a large number of paintings, including many from Ann's new book and dvd, 'Experimental Flowers in Watercolour' alongside landscapes and woodland subjects. Some of the paintings have been created with  intricate layers of mixed media and others are loose watercolours using Ann’s unique and unusual  painting methods.

The exhibition is to be held in a superb 16th century tithe barn gallery. The fantastic venue has award winning gardens and tea rooms which will be open all week to celebrate the exhibition of flower paintings and create a special day out.  The gallery is in the centre of a glorious part of the Cotswolds with many gardens, antique shops and scenic walks. 

Her new dvd from us, also called ’Experimental Flowers in Watercolour’, will be shown throughout the exhibition. Ann will be at the exhibition all week and will be demonstrating some of her painting ideas at about 2pm on Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd. This will either take place upstairs in the Tithe Barn or in the garden. Please contact her for further details.

The exhibition is free but access to the garden will be subject to an entrance fee. Visit and further information.
