“Just Real Art” An exhibition by Ivan Jones at the Old Stables Gallery, Leominster
Ivan Jones is a local artist based in Wigmore, Herefordshire. He works largely in the medium of pastel, creating detailed and realistic artworks in a wide range of subject matter. As Ivan himself says “I feel that pastels have a great vibrancy and richness of colour that is often not appreciated”. Ivan’s veterinary background and his understanding of animals gives his artwork an extra dimension. He will have original artworks, high quality giclee prints and greeting cards on display at the Old Stables Gallery from December 1st until December 31st 2018. Why not visit Ivan’s exhibition, find inspiration and maybe take the opportunity to buy a unique gift for Christmas.
You can find the light and airy “Old Stables Gallery” at the rear of the Leominster Tourist Information Office at 11 Corn Square, Leominster, HR6 8YP and it is open Monday to Saturday 9.30am to 4pm. Find out more about Ivan at www.ivanjonesart.co.uk and see more of his work on Facebook and Instagram.
