Hedon Museum is exhibiting the work of a prestigious artist who this year had her painting displayed at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. For the 250th Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy, paintings were handpicked by Grayson Perry. Cynthia Ward’s painting of Andrew Graham Dixon was among those chosen, and now it is on display at Hedon Museum, among many of her other paintings.
Cynthia Ward has always loved painting and achieved her dream of becoming a professional artist while living on the Maltese island of Gozo. There she painted the stunning seascapes which surrounded her every day, including the famously enchanting Azure Window which collapsed in 2017.
At Hedon Museum, alongside the painting of Andrew Graham Dixon, Cynthia will display hardly-seen emotional portraits of family and friends, some self-portraits and immersive waterscapes, both local and from Gozo.
“A must-see exhibition!” – Katy Miller, Hedon Museum
