Exhibition: Messum's Fine Art
28, Cork Street, London W1S 3NG
Tuesday 12th September - Friday 6th October 2017
Oils and Works on Paper
During his travels around the world as a working painter Alan has accumulated many books full of drawings, watercolours and pastels. These are the source material for all the oil paintings, most of which are completed back in his Devon studio. As he regards these as a series of personal memories, he has held on to them. With plans for a new book being launched next year in London, however, he and his dealer, David Messum, felt that exhibiting a collection of works on paper, along side some of the oil paintings would make an interesting exhibition, where people could see the gestation of the ideas in the relation to the completed paintings in oils.
In this show there are 78 pieces of work from locations as diverse as Venice, Piemonte, Provence, Tuscany, Isle of Skye, Hartland and the West Coast of Ireland
Members of the Budleigh Salterton Art Club, are warmly invited to the all day Private View on Tuesday 12th September
