Burnham-On-Sea’s Princess Theatre is to hold a small exhibition of paintings by a local artist from Lympsham.
Margaret Riordan’s artwork will be on show as an exhibition in the Café at the theatre from 22nd July – 17th August 2019.
“I am a self-taught artist, have been painting and drawing all my life, and have entered many competitions with success at local and national level,” she says.
“Over 300 of my works have been sold throughout the UK, Europe and North America at exhibitions, in galleries and occasionally on eBay.”
“I enjoy painting in all mediums and particularly love the human form. I love to paint people, and will often get pleasure from just doodling a sketch of someone at a railway station.”
“I like doing portraits, and I love capturing the movement of people dancing, playing sport, etc. I get my inspiration from Jack Vettriano and I adore David Downton, the fashion illustrator.”
“My other great passion is painting horses. I like buildings, scenes, trains, boats, planes. If it’s there, I want to paint it! I was a secretary by profession but I have always loved to paint as a pastime.”
The exhibition will be in collaboration with another local artist, Allison Hurden. Allison Hurden has lived in Weston for most of her life and fell in love with art from a very young age. She has studied art at Weston College taking A level and an arts foundation course.
The Princess is open Tuesday – Friday from 10am–3pm and Saturday from 10am – 1pm.
