Following the great success of the last ArtWalk Jordans hosted the art work of Chris Fallowfield and teamed up with Wakefields Lit Fest and author Barbara Phipps, to treat our guests to a double whammy!
The ArtWalk is the night where venues around Wakefield open their doors to a wide range of visual arts and crafts, live music and performances. With a selection of events spanning 17 different venues, including Jordans Solicitors at our Wakefield office. With such a selection, there really is something for all, from adults to children and members of the general public to art professionals alike.
The artist we will be hosting on the eve of the 28th of November is Wendy Ward, and her collection is entitled ‘’Images of Australia.’’. Wendy has taken inspiration from her own travel to the country; upon her many visits she has been struck by the unique and beautiful landscapes and the incredibly diverse wildlife, providing perfect subjects for her paintings.
Wendy has been painting for many years and is entirely self taught. She paints in oils and also does pastel drawings. She finds inspiration for paintings wherever she goes and her subjects include landscapes, flowers and various wildlife subjects including birds of prey.
Wendy is a regular at exhibitions with local art clubs in and around Wakefield and has also exhibited in Sheffield and Holmfirth.
Jordans Solicitors joined the ArtWalk in 2011 as part of our ongoing initiative to support the arts local to our Castleford, Horsforth, Dewsbury and Wakefield offices. The next ArtWalk will take place on the 28th November, from 5pm — 9pm in our Wakefield office. For more information visit http://artwalk.org.uk/ We hope to see you there!
