Coronavirus cancellations

Unfortunately, many of the events scheduled for this Spring have had to be postponed due to the coronavirus lockdown. These included:

The Green Man Gallery Spring Gathering Exhibition.

This was due to take place on 27th March until 22nd April. However, the Green Man Gallery did manage to host an online version. Many artists submitted work which can be viewed and purchased online. (Visit http://www.thegreenmangallery.com)

Painting and drawing workshops.

Several workshops have had to be postponed. ‘The Experimental Landscape’ workshop run by Geoff Chilton, and the day long workshop ‘Expressive Drawing’ also led by Geoff have had to be put off. Workshops by fellow artist Jenny Mackenzie which were also due to take place in April have had to be postponed. Be assured that all these workshops will run just as soon as the lockdown is lifted and the Green Man Gallery re-opens.

Buxton Sketching Group.

The inaugural meeting of the Buxton Sketching Group was extremely well attended by beginners and experienced artists alike. So many people were keen to go out and draw their town and Geoff was inundated with requests from many who were new to urban sketching for a workshop on how to approach the subject. He had planned to do a short introduction before the second meeting but, alas, the lockdown was in place before he could run this. When it is safe to meet and the Green Man Gallery re-opens, rest assured that these meeting will be scheduled.
