What is Mr Woods up to nowadays then?

Dan Woods was the first artist that Artists UK promoted and he’s still going strong although some things have changed. His mainstream was book illustration and album cover work for the likes of Captain Sensible and the Fish Brothers but nowadays he’s taking things a bit easier and returning to his roots with some bright and refreshing landscape artwork in his local Brighton area. His paintings are peaceful yet bright and evocative of warm breezy days. Here are a few of the latest paintings he has painted.

 

A few agents have already taken up rights on some of his work and others are selling at exhibitions around the south of England but if you are interested in owning one of his orginal paintings then let us know. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the work and the size so they could also be a good investment.

If you are not familiar with Dan Woods or his art then you can have a look at some of his better-known work here.

This fabulous new paintimng by John Zehentner is for for the brand new Waterfront Arts Project show opening March 2017

If you are anywhere near Southport you just really have to check this out!  The Waterfront Arts Project is an unbelievable collection of local talent.  For those who are fed up with seaside galleries where all that is on display are watercolour paintings of the local scenery this will come as a welcome surprise.  This is art of the calibre of the TATE or Walker and if you love art you won’t want to miss this.  And they’re a generous lot too.  You’ll most likely be treated to free nibbles and drinks if you come to the opening (you might want to make a donation but they seem so embarrassed to ask for anything that you’ll probably have to hunt around to find the donations box on the floor somewhere).  Apart from the amazing realistic surrealism of John Zehentner you can expect some wonderfully dark art from the superb talents of Joan Walmsley, colourful abstract works and thought-provoking political art and satire from other members of the group.  There may be a theme but the art will be vast and varied.  If you are anywhere near Southport on March 5th why not pop down at 2pm and join in the fun. You’ll find the gallery on the Piazza promenade between the Ramada hotel and the Genting Club casino (PR9 0DZ for the satnav and you can park on Ocean Plaza just over the bridge).  If you can’t make it for 5th March it’ll be running until 7th May.

The Waterfront Arts Project have announced their next art exhibition at their permanent gallery in Southport. The gallery has attracted over 40,000 visitors since it started and is home to a wonderfful diversity of artistic talent. If you are fed up with seaside art galleries where all you get is a staggering volume of varying degrees of talent of renditions of the local scenery in watercolour or oils then this will come as a welcome surprise. The talent of artists like John Zehentner and Joan Walmsley to mention but two of the great artists here easily rivals the talent in the most prestigious galleries in the main cities.

The new exhibition is entitled ‘The Painful Untruth’ and promises to be yet another challenging and thought-provoking collection of work. It starts on 11th September 2016 so if you are anywhere near southport why not pop down at 2pm and join in the fun. You’ll find the gallery on the Piazza promenade between the Ramada hotel and the Genting Club casino (PR9 0DZ for the satnav and you can park on Ocean Plaza just over the bridge).

Running from July 10th to 4th September is the new Waterfront Arts Project exhibition entitled ‘Beyond the Obvious’. If you are anywhere near southport you really should take a look. You’ll find it in a unit towards the back of the Ramada hotel.  There is a large walkway between the hotel and the Casino/ Genting Club.  Both are located on the promenade and if you are using a satnav then the postcode is PR9 0DZ. Their Facebook page is here.
