A Retrospective Exhibition of Peter Wyart’s Work

wyart retro 2If you missed the chance to see Peter Wyart’s exhibition of recent work in Montreuil last month, put the dates of his July show, a retrospective of 30 years of his work, in your diary.

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.

John Hutton in La Grange Blanche with 'Flight'

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.

Opening times on 18/ 19/ 20/ October at La Grange Blanche are 14.00 hrs to 18.00hrs.

John Hutton is a British abstract artist who has lived and worked in Northern France for many years.  Next weekend, Saturday October 20 and Sunday October 21, he is throwing his studio doors open so that the public can take a look at some of his latest work.

Although John usually works in acrylic on canvas, Frogsiders has heard that in some of  his most recent pieces he has been tempted to depart from pure painting in order to experiment with the 3-dimensional effects of coloured and textured perspex.  Visitors to John’s studio may be intrigued to see some of  the results of this new direction in his art.

4 British Artists announce a summer show at Montreuil

Last year’s group of 3 has become this year’s gang of 4 with the inclusion of Frank Banfield along with regular exhibitors James Buchanan Johnston, Alice Lawrie Johnston and Peter Wyart.

All 4 artists have homes in or around Montreuil. We look forward to an opportunity to examine the ways in which this common experience might impact differently on 4 separate artistic visions.
