Artwrite on-line project

Two Chairs, is an online exhibition of work by artists and writers who are in conversation or collaborating in response to a photograph. The project has come about as result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the curtailment of other planned Artwrite events. Graham Chorlton and Annette Pugh have both been invited to participate in this project and works will go live from June 30th at https://www.artwrite.net/

Annette Pugh ‘Verdant’

A solo show of paintings by Midlands artist Annette Pugh. Inspired by 18th century engravings of waterfalls, and by amateur photography of the 1950s, this exhibition provides a modern twist to traditionally “picturesque” landscapes, depicting them with the heightened colour of early postcards.
