New Solo exhibition for PDA’s Chair

Sue Prince has a new solo exhibition opening as well as leading the creation of a new community history painting.

PDA’s current Chair, Sue Prince has a busy April ahead of her, Sue is a narrative folk artist who specialises in the medium of egg tempera and will be opening her new solo exhibition ‘A Human View’ on 4th April at The Anglers Rest in Bamford. The work on display will examine just what it feels like to be a human being in today’s world; from the simple pleasures of walking in the Manifold Valley and seeing hares nestled in her organic meadows to being bombarded by Trump and Brexit, it will all be there. In addition on Thursday 5th April Sue will hold an artist’s talk on the technique of egg tempera painting as well as discussing the inspiration and motivation behind her highly detailed works. The talk will commence at 7.00pm, there is no need to book just come along and enjoy the evening.

‘A Human View’ will open on 4th April and runs until 2nd May, opening hours are Monday –Saturday 9.00am – 4.00pm and 9.30am – 4.00pm on Sunday’s.

In addition to her solo exhibition Sue will also be leading the creation of a huge egg tempera folk art painting inspired by an ancient Swedish technique. This follows on from the creation of the Ashbourne Treasure in 2017, which was created in conjunction with 170 Ashbourne residents. This year Sue will be working in Alstonefield as part of the Anne Green Festival celebrating 500 years of St Peter’s Church. Anne Green’s gravestone, which can be found in a corner of the Church Yard is the oldest legible gravestone in England; participants are invited to come to St Peter’s Church, Alstonefield, Ashbourne on 28th and 29th April between 10.00am-4.00pm to where they can contribute to this large scale community history painting.
