A Fresh View - Art Exhibition

A Fresh View - Art Exhibition

FOC - Open 10am-4pm, Mon-Sat

Original approaches to art - an exhibition by four artists, displayed in Blackfriars Foyer Gallery.


Jean works in a conventional semi realistic style. She specialises using coloured pencils and decorative styles, including the use of Aquarelle Pencils. She uses soft hues before adding brightness of colour in more detail.

Jean has also begun to enjoy creating pictures through the medium of lino cutting.

Her work covers varying areas including animals, still life, decorative pattern work and teddy bears.

She admires the work of artists such as The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, Andrew Wyeth, David Hockney and Bridget Riley.


Liz often bases her paintings on things she sees in her environment. She likes to create different effects by using varied, sometimes recycled and textured surfaces to work on. In her work she aims to create moods through her use of colour.

Favourite media are acrylic and watercolour paints, but sometimes she experiments by using mixed media to create an unplanned result.

Liz had her first solo exhibition at Blackfriars in 2017, and a second with Desmond Roe in 2018. She regularly exhibits her work locally and enjoys attending several art groups in Boston and Kirton.


Pat has loved art for much of her life having first studied it as part of a teaching qualification. Since moving to Spalding she has attended classes given by Graham Timbrell on her favourite watercolour, although recently acrylic and ink has caught her interest.

For a period Pat attended classes with Sarah Gould, an eminent flower painter. The very close attention to observation, structure and colour complemented her existing work.

For three years she was involved with the Welland Gallery where members exhibited in Ayscoughfee, Springfields and the South Holland Centre,.


Alison took up painting three years ago, starting with watercolour. Her favourite subjects are ducks and chickens and her style is realistic. She does however like to explore different styles and admires the work of Raoul Dufy and Wassily Kandinsky.

She is involved with local art groups and this is the second exhibition in which she has participated.

The exhibition will be displayed in the Blackfriars foyer from 28th until 23rd November, so please come in and take a look.

Blackfriars undoubtedly plays a very important role as Boston's centre for entertainment and the arts. It is home to two very successful local amateur dramatic and operatic groups, as well as hosting a varied program of professional stage productions.
