Mary used a Crowborough Arts bursary to take a course in printmaking at the renowned West Dean College. She's kindly agreed to speak about her experience on June 5th. For anyone who doesn't know her, Mary facilitates our portrait and life drawing sessions and is also leading CA artists at the Glorious Gardens weekend at Penshurst Place on June 2nd. Don't miss what promises to be a fascinating talk.
Many, many congratulations go to a previous Crowborough Arts bursary recipient, ceramicist Deborah Thompsett, who has just been named overall winner in the Chaiya Art Awards. The accompanying exhibition is at the prestigious gallery@oxo on London's South Bank until 8th April. Deborah's installation "A Thousand Bottles of Tears" was selected from over 450 entrants and had previously been displayed in Chichester Cathedral.
