This is the title of the exhibition I have been working towards with three paintings, all now complete. I am also putting five unframed paintings in a browser, all at knockdown prices since the objective is to generate sales to the benefit of church funds. Publicity has been generated; final instructions to exhibitors and volunteers – often the same persons – have been issued; invitations to the PV have been sent out. As many organisers of events this summer are discovering, the occasion is suddenly upon us.
The exhibition will be in St Peter’s Church, Wenhaston (between Halesworth and Blythburgh, just west of the A12 in E. Suffolk), from Friday July 31 – Monday August 3 inclusive, 10 a.m. -4 p.m. each day. Lots and lots of information about it, including previews of some of the paintings to be exhibited, are on the web pages of both the Inspired by Becker Society (IBBS) and Wenhaston village. This is the third such annual occasion and, to judge from the previous ones, it will be a great success with some of the considerable artistic talent of Suffolk (and further afield) showing off its creativity out of respect for a considerable artist who lived locally and for his subject, the men and women of the Wenhaston district who worked the land by horse and manual labour a century or so ago.
