Frogsider readers are invited to the vernissage of an exhibition of paintings by Chris, and photography by Jean Louis Saelens. Friday 23 October, from 18h30, Salle Mendes France, Hotel de Ville, Hesdin.
The exhibition will run from October 21 to 28. Open 15h00 to 19h00, (10h00 to 12h00 on Sunday)
At the last Wyart exhibition we attended the vernissage and decided to buy two paintings, only to be pipped at the post by another buyer who got his order in a couple of minutes earlier. It seems if you want to own a painting by Peter Wyart, you need to make sure you’re at the front of the queue.
Don’t forget this is the weekend when artists in the Pas De Calais open their studio doors to the public.
Among those artists, John Hutton, based at Neuville near Montreuil, will be most happy to welcome you. John’s large painting “Flight”, seen in the photo above, encapsulates one of the heroic scale works made in his studio, La Grange Blanche within a ten year period. The majority of work exhibited in this show has been shown in France and abroad.
