There will be a Royal presence at AppArt’s Easter Art Exhibition & Sculpture Trail 2019

AppArt is no stranger to celebrity appearances by leading UK artists and this year is no exception. Internationally celebrated Surrey artist Alexander Creswell will open the exhibition and Sculpture Trail on Saturday 6thApril at Prior’s Field School Godalming.

Alexander Creswell is known for his extraordinary fluency and technical skill in watercolour.  His ground-breaking ‘grand scale’ watercolours are some of the largest ever painted. He was the first artist ever to paint scenes at Westminster Abbey.  “Dunstanburgh Castle, The Gate Towers” is an impressive and striking example of his work. He has a one-man show at Godalming’s nationally renown, Watts Gallery from the 25th April – 9th June 2019.

There will be a royal presence at this year’s exhibition thanks to the clever and intricate work of Louise Grundy. Her paper mache sculptures of the Queen and Prince Philip are bound to attract attention.

The Sculpture Trail of over 100 works is being set up earlier than the main exhibition so that local school children can visit it during their term time. Worksheets have been specially created for them and Prior’s Field School will ensure they have a creative time. We think they will be delighted with the drove of hares by Monmouthshire sculptor Christine Baxter that will grace the bank at the front of the school. “Itchy”, “topsey turvey” and “leaping” hares will amuse and intrigue.

Other works that will be attract include Christine Charlesworth’s “Hide and Seek “ of two children playing. However they may want to hide from Gilbert Whyman’s giant Samurai made from scrap metal and seek more friendly sculptures such as Jon Barrett- Danes ceramic ducks.

There is much to see outside and later when the main exhibition opens to the public there will be 600 artworks on display in the School’s theatre.

AppArt will be open daily from Saturday 6thApril to Easter Sunday 21stApril form 10 am to 4 pm. Admission is free.
