March Artist of the Month

Faringdon Information Centre is pleased to welcome Bob Marchant as the Artist of the month for March.

The arts were not a priority to Bob in his youth and he opted for a career as an engineer.  However, being a practical person, years later he decided to have a go at oil painting. He enrolled in an evening class and things took off from there.

  These days, Bob mostly paints with acrylics but likes to try different mediums and has dabbled with photography, linocuts, drypoint etching, mosaics, stained glass, marquetry and even blacksmithing.  Bob is always on the lookout for a new subject or a different way of portraying an old one.

  Although he is a Moonraker, Bob has lived in Oxfordshire for more than 35 years.  He is a member of Lechlade and Faringdon Art Societies and exhibits locally. He has an extensive range of greetings cards reproduced from his paintings.

Come along to the Faringdon Information Centre during March to see Bob’s work, open Monday to Friday 9 am to 4 pm and 9:30 am to 1 pm on Saturdays
