Offchurch Artists all display innovative new work in St Gregory’s. This ancient little village church provides a superb setting for 6 talented artists Jane Archer, Eleanor Allitt,, Julie Law, Judith Perry and Colin Purdy.
There will also be activities for children to create a unique artwork using recycled waste materials. On the last Sunday afternoon – 5th July, we are having a Grand Finale with a local band playing live French café music, and cream teas. Hoping to see you.
Offchurch Artists are part of the on the Fosse Trail.
Eleanor has exhibited necklaces,and paintings at Leamington Studio Artists, Association of Midland Artists, and Rugby Open, as well as being shortlisted for the Royal Academy. Her work is also on show at many galleries.
Currently running beadmaking workshops in numerous places including the National Trust. I have recently started a regular group 'Beads Plus' at Lott Bazaar in Leamington.
I also produce story paintings for hospitals, these consist of large narrative paintings with text alongside. An example of this is the Dragonfly story installed in University Hospital of Coventry and Warwick.
Future exhibitions :
August 4&5 at my cottage in Offchurch
November 4 - 29 at Leamington Studio Artists, East Lodge, Leamington.
From a background in printed textiles (BA (Hons) Central School of Art) Eleanor has designed for many companies. She has also directed her own company producing stencils and decorating many hotels and private houses. She started making beads in 2016, and now runs workshops teaching beadmaking. She also paints flying birds, inspired by her walks in the countryside.
She is keen to show that you can make beautiful things from 'nothing'. ie from recycled packaging, most of the beads are based on paper pulp sourced from eggboxes. Likewise the flying goose paintings are painted on old broken fence panels.
