Easel Club Exhibition At Red House Cone

An exhibition by a group formed in 1879 has opened at the Red House Glass Cone in Wordsley.

The Easel Club was originally formed in 1879 by professional artist Edmund Watson, whose sketches for the “Graphic Illustrations of Warwickshire” are now stored in the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. The group continues to meet monthly with meetings consist of searching appraisals of members’ work in progress.

Pieces in the exhibition at the Red House Glass Cone include Keith Turley’s almost monotone portrait of a chain maker in oil and acrylic which zings with energy as sparks fly from his industrial machinery; Paul Hipkiss’ monotone and multicolour intricate landscape lino prints as well as a range of portraits, nudes, landscapes, sea scenes and cityscapes in a range of media.                                                                                                          

The Easel Club exhibit work as a group on an annual basis and have exhibited at various venues in the Midlands including the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists where most of the members are elected members

The artistic merit of past members of the Easel Club is an inspiration to its contemporary members who aspire to uphold the high standards of many of the club’s illustrious and well respected past members.

The exhibition runs until 19 June. The Red House Glass Cone, High Street, Wordsley, is open 10am – 3pm Monday to Friday and 11am – 4pm at the weekends. Admission is free.
