This May the Granary Art Gallery at Weston Park welcomes equestrian artists Alison Wilson and Glynis Mills for an exhibition of their recent equestrian and other works in a show entitled Two Viewpoints.
Alison Wilson studied traditional Fine Art at the Slade School, initially worked as a theatre scenic artist, and then as a teacher of drawing. She has exhibited widely, including in London, and has work in private collections in the UK and abroad. She has also won various awards including the first prize in the open category at the International Falconry Festival in Abu Dhabi. Alison has also illustrated books, and authored the book ‘Drawing and Painting Horses’ for the Crowood Press. Together with Glynis, she jointly edited the Society of Equestrian Artists Newsletter for over ten years and both artists teach workshops and life drawing.
Glynis Mills trained in Graphic Design and Illustration at York and Leicester, followed by a distinguished career in that field with a major international company as Design Co-ordinator working on major brands from chocolate to cat food. During that time she continued to exhibit her work with major societies. As the printing took over from the painting she won a variety of major awards including the Laing Gallery prize in the Northern Print Biennale (an International competition) to the Cuneo Medal which Alison had won a few years earlier. She is an Honorary Full Member of the Society of Equestrian Artists and is represented by several galleries in England. Glynis’s work is traditional, her design background shows in the composition and colour ways of her work, paying attention to detail without being over fussy.
11am – 4pm
