Join us for an exciting evening of art as we launch Sue Dickins‘ latest solo exhibition on April 15th, 2023. The exhibition will showcase a new collection of oil paintings featuring women from all around the world and different cultures wearing traditional dress or jewellery.
Local artist Sue Dickins has always had a passion for figurative art and oil painting. After a long hiatus and a career as a police officer, she returned to her love of art and has been creating beautiful pieces ever since. Sue now runs a car rental business and paints in her small studio at home in Chesterfield, where she lives with her son Ben.
The exhibition is a celebration of the beauty and diversity of women from all corners of the globe. Each painting is a stunning depiction of a woman in traditional dress or jewellery, capturing the essence of her culture and heritage.
Join us for the opening evening on April 15th from 6pm to 9pm, where you can meet the artist, enjoy a glass of wine, and marvel at the stunning collection of paintings. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the world through Sue Dickins’ eyes and experience the beauty and diversity of women’s traditional dress and jewellery from around the world.
Last August, Artist Susan Disckins opened her first solo exhibition, This Woman’s Work, at her West Studios. She studied art in St. Helena many years ago, right next to her studio building, so she felt it appropriate to have an exhibition here, where it all began. she felt As she was preparing for her first exhibition, she discovered that she had a passion for painting fabric, and she loves figurative work, so she combined the two. I decided to. She came up with the idea for a follow-up exhibition, Women United. She portrays women from all over the world in traditional clothing wherever possible, she takes pictures of herself and also works with live models.
West Studios is such a beautiful, warm and happy place, she asked if I could go back. I am welcome again and will be exhibiting here again in April!
The event continues for a further two weeks Mon -Fri 10-4 where Sue will be present to welcome and chat to guests.
