From the 6th - 28th July , I will be taking part in an exhibition of portraits at the Gallery Highwaymans at Risby near Bury St. Edmunds.The exhibition is a celebration of the work of Mary Beale, a 17th century artist from Barrow, the village where I now live.
On show will be her self portrait from the St. Edmundsbury Collection prior to its inclusion in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, Masterpieces:" Art and East Anglia".
Alongside her work will be portraits by contemporary East Anglian artists. It promises to be a fascinating exhibition from the traditional to the avant - garde. Well worth a visit.
