Art lovers have flocked to a Royston gallery to check out their latest exhibition – which was all about nature.
Selena Bragg’s pottery, Christine Norman’s watercolour pieces and Maggie Allen’s oil paintings are exhibited in the Curwens Art Gallery in High Street, and the sneak peak event was hailed a success.
Maggie, who lives in Royston and started painting in 2006, told the Crow: “The preview went very well, lots of people turned up and we all enjoyed meeting new people and having a chat over a glass of wine.”
Maggie met Selena through Cambridge wood turner Rowland Penfold, who also regularly exhibits his work at Curwens.
Curwens’ Amanda Thurston told the Crow: “The evening was well-attended with lots of interest in the original artwork and some sales!
“Selena Bragg exhibited her beautiful and tactile pottery – produced into all shapes and sizes including coasters and jewellery.
“Christine Norman is a new artist to Curwens and produced paintings in watercolours, acrylic and mixed media.
