The John Bowen gallery

'CONTRASTS'

an art exhibition by 'HOOK ARTISTS'

from Saturday 11th August to Thursday 30th August 2018

'Hook Artists' are six friends, all members of The Guild of Wiltshire Artists.  Each artist uses different media and very contrasting styles in approaching their choice of subject matter.  The exhibition includes pencil drawings of trees, surreal and fantasy artwork, pen and wash landscapes, detailed coloured drawings of plants and flowers, drawings/paintings of the human figure and portraits.
