Prepare to be impressed! Treat for Art Lovers at Hedon Museum

Impressionist, realist and surrealist artworks will feature at the latest exhibition at Hedon Museum. Artists Dianne Brown and James Lee will display their unique exhibits every Saturday and Wednesday, 10am – 4pm until Saturday, 13 July 2019 with Dianne’s giant, colourful canvasses contrasting starkly with James’ vivid, multi-media approach. It’s free admission at the Museum and refreshments (tea, coffee and biscuits) are available. When in Hedon, look for the boards on Watmough’s Arcade to help guide you to the Museum.

Katy Miller from Hedon Museum believes the exhibitions will really impress visitors!

“Our double exhibition is quite a treat for art-lovers. If you want to see huge variations in style all in one room, then Hedon Museum is the place to be. This is the ideal display for art students to visit for research, advice and ideas.

“James Lee is returning, a year after exhibiting with The Secret Artists. He’ll be bringing the favourites from the previous exhibition, as well as new series of works, including nature paintings on broken wood. His incredible skill with realism caught the attention of our visitors last Spring and will certainly impress again. The eyes of the primates and big cats look so alive you can hardly believe they’re painted! James Lee has also produced a new dot-work series of landmarks in Hull. It takes a great deal of patience to create these pictures, made entirely of tiny dots. Equally enchanting are his portrait series of tribal-style women. These intense and spiritual portraits will undoubtedly draw you in.

Dianne Brown, who works under the name Artizanne Muralz, is sharing the space to display works of art unlike any we’ve displayed before at Hedon Museum. She has a BA (hons) in Animation and has dabbled with many art forms and styles but specialises in murals and enjoys painting murals for children. You might recognise her work from the Chatty Couch on St Augustine’s Gate, Hedon.

“Bored with the ordinary and traditional, she turned her style around to try something very different. She is fascinated by surrealism and takes her inspiration from Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte and M C Escher. Her paintings are skilful, thought provoking and amusing. Pop in for a look and they’ll put a happy smile on your face for the rest of your day.” by Katy Miller, Hedon Museum.

Exhibition runs from Wednesday 19th June to Saturday 13th July 2019. FREE ADMISSION. Open Wednesdays and Saturdays 10am – 4pm.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are available. Souvenirs and books for sale.
