Exhibition Open Evening by John Whitney

Born and bred in Rotherhithe, although he is self taught his output is highly professional that shows a degree of skill achieved from a lifetime of experience. John loves to draw mountains, he has drawn mountains everywhere he has been, from Kenya as a young army recruit, to Japan in the merchant Navy and Switzerland as an art gallery carpet fitter. John’s artwork is now all over the world including Australia, Canada and the United States of America.

John was born in Rotherhithe in the 30´s , the eldest son of a docker and professional table tennis player. His mother was a devoted housewife and proud loving mum of three boys. After attending school, he then joined H.A. Oliver Barge Yard as an apprentice barge builder. John also served in the Army from 1956 as part of his national service. John has always enjoyed painting as a hobby, his preferred medium is oil although he has done work in both watercolours and acrylics. He has a passion for landscapes and still life, the latter being flowers and plants. John´s inspiration comes from his worldly travles especially his love of the countryside around Geneva, Switzerland and across France

The exhibition will run from July 24th until September 23rd 2017

On my Travels by Christine Hyde & Jean Stanford

Christine Hyde

I’m Christine Hyde, self-taught naive artist, semi retired now, work part time, who has attended lots of art classes. I like to paint what I see in passing, incorporating all the things I love, like home, markets, streets, people, friends, buildings familiar and not. Love to paint in bright colours and enjoy bird watching so sometimes a bird slips into view as they do anyway, everywhere.

I also like to guess what goes on behind windows rather than paint in blinds or curtains. Things may not appear in the right order, so can be a bit abstract or ‘artistic licence’. I usually start a picture from the bottom of the page and work up. I like my paintings to show humour and optimism, and if I can I hope my paintings “lift the spirit”, it’s my aim.

Jean Stanford

I always wanted to do art but did not take it up until I retire and then began attending art classes in Rotherhithe and Southwark. I use both oils and pastels but enjoy watercolours the most. When out and about if I see anything pleasing or funny, I take a photograph with the intention to paint the scene later on. I hope you enjoy my work.
