George Weil are pleased to have been able to support the 2017 Yvonne Arnaud Art Exhibition as a patron. The event featured 25 artists including works in oils, acrylics, pastels - and cement! Plus photographs on aluminum, sculptures and ceramics.
The painting "Patti" featured here (right) is by artist David Dragon, and another of his paintings "The Water Carrier" is shown on the bottom left of the wall pictured below. David was previously an album sleeve designer and has worked for Decca and EMI for artists such as UB40, XTC and Oasis.
Other exhibiting artists included watercolourist Jackie Deveraux, photographer Sue Roche, and sculptor Christine Suzman.
Broadcaster and champion of community arts, Jeff Thomson, attended the Private Viewing.
"Guildford Arts again offers an eclectic range of styles, materials, and concepts from 25 contributors and I joined an informed crowd circulating among works that represent national, regional and local names. This year’s exhibition continues to astonish and could exceed some earlier shows."
"I can only echo Nicholas Tromans' (curator of The Watts Gallery) observation - 'local does not mean lesser.' How true."
You can review some of the artists' work from the Yvonne Arnaud Art Exhibition on the Guildford Arts website.
