Views of the country on show
Published 22/04/14



AN exhibition of art, jewellery and ceramics from a professional group will take place at Hambleden Village Hall this weekend.

The Country Artists will be exhibiting around 50 paintings, including landscapes, seascapes, limited edition prints and wildlife paintings, as well as handmade jewellery and pottery.

Organiser Howard Birchmore from Reading has held exhibitions at the hall before as part of the Thames Valley Artists, which has now disbanded.

He said: “We’ve had exhibitions in Hambleden before but not for about four years now. We like Hambleden and thought it would be nice to do an exhibition over Easter.

“Being an artist is quite a solitary experience so it’s nice for us to get together.”


Among the exhibitors will be Carolyn Tyrer from Harwell, who is well-known for her quirky paintings of the British Isles. A selection of her oil on board paintings will be on show at the village hall. She draws her inspiration from the Group of Seven who painted Canadian landscapes in oils and produced innovative and highly-coloured work.

Carolyn trained at Central St Martins and Sir John Cass where there was an emphasis on traditional drawing.

She uses her drawing skills to allow her to take a slightly distorted viewpoint in her paintings that are instantly recognisable. She has exhibited widely throughout the United Kingdom, most recently at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea where her work was a great success. She also exhibits at Art@ Goring in Goring.

• The Country Artists exhibition runs at Hambleden Village Hall on Easter Sunday and Monday, April 20 and 21, from 10.30am to 5pm.
