Elizabeth Gray exhibit: 70 Years of an Artist’s LifePosted on 11th June 2015
Nature in Art, an artistic jewel in Gloucester, is presenting a special exhibition at Wallsworth Hall through until the beginning of July. The museum is celebrating 70 years of work by Elizabeth Gray.
A self-taught artist, the 87-year-old Gray has a long association with the Gloucester museum. In fact, it was a piece by Gray that became the museum’s first acquisition when it was opened in 1988.
Event organisers describe the exhibition as a remarkable collection by the artist in a wide range of media and styles. Near many of our holiday cottages in the Forest of Dean, the museum finds its home in Twigworth’s Wallsworth Hall, a country estate dating back to 1740.
Gray’s works, spanning the artist’s entire career, include pieces in watercolours, oils, paper and mosaics. There are also examples of découpage, pots, painted furniture, needlework, book-binding, drawings, digital art, prints, and more.
The museum is open from 10am to 5pm, Tuesday to Saturday each week, and the exhibition runs until 5th of July.
