Paintings and artwork by James Lee and Dianne Brown are currently on display at Hedon Museum. The double exhibition offers some very different pieces of art to appreciate and enjoy.
James Lee returns to the museum after some of his work featured in an exhibition last year. Jim, who started producing artwork seriously after becoming a volunteer at Mersey Street school in Hull, is exhibiting a collection of very different pieces including ones created in oils, acrylics, and pictures using his own unique chalk-pen, dot-work style. He also has several three-dimensional wooden paintings and sculptured works made from, amongst other everyday items, discarded tree bark and deadwood found on the floor at East Park. His multi-medium exhibits are all offered for sale at affordable prices. Jim hopes to be present most days at the exhibition and is keen to talk to people about their own artwork and offer encouragement.
Dianne Brown from Hedon is delighted to be holding her first-ever exhibition of her own art. Although having been a prolific artist since childhood, having studied aspects to degree level (BA Hons), and worked professionally as an artist, this is the first time she has held an exhibition of her own work. Dianne has painted a special collection of giant ‘floral portraits’ especially for the exhibition, and although she has a very busy website displaying her work, this particular collection is only available to view by visitors to the museum. Some of the portraits are unusual in that they are painted using both oil and acrylic paints. Although none of her artwork at the exhibition is for sale, visitors can visit Dianne’s website at www.artizannemuralz.com and find out about her work and purchasing/commissioning work. During the course of the exhibition Dianne is going to be painting new works live which visitors should find of additional interest. She is particularly pleased to to be displaying in her home town’s museum praising the volunteers there for their friendly, supportive and down-to-earth approach.
Artists James Lee and Dianne Brown will display their unique exhibits every Saturday and Wednesday, 10am – 4pm until Saturday, July 13 at Hedon Museum. The museum can be found via Watmough’s Arcade in the town centre where notice boards will direct you towards the museum.
