Artist of the Month for October 2023
Fresh from his very successful showing at the recent Art Society Exhibition, Faringdon Information Centre is delighted to welcome once again the well-known Faringdon Artist, Peter Wheeler, as October’s Artist of the Month.
Central to this years’ additions to his existing collection of Winter themed cards, is a challenging commission for a painting of the famous Faringdon Christmas House. Chris and George Platt have been decorating their house and pretty front garden with wonderful lights and displays for over 20 years, giving seasonal pleasure to the whole community, as well as raising thousands of pounds for charity. Peter said recently “I found this a difficult assignment, when trying to make sense, in paint, of a dark scene with coloured lights it is difficult to give the right perception of awe and atmosphere. However, I am finally pleased with the end result and in recognition of Chris and George’s enormous dedication I will be donating 10% from the sale of each card to their chosen charity”.
There are a further three NEW Winter themed cards added to the collection, a different depiction of the ever-popular Folly card, and an enchanting scene of snow falling on our much-loved Church of All Saints, and a different scene through the Narrows showing a light dusting of snow on the War Memorial. These new additions have already proved enormously popular and reprints are on their way.
Come along to the Information Centre at The Pump House in Faringdon Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm (Saturday 9.30am to 1pm) during October 2023 for an opportunity to purchase from the extended range of cards, all carefully curated, printed and hand finished from fresh and original artwork.
