Inspired By Becker Art Exhibition
The exhibition by the Inspired by Becker Art Society (IBBAS) will take place in Wenhaston and will show work by creatives based in the East of England and London.
Featuring the work of more than 28 artists, the exhibition will give viewers the chance to look at contemporary artwork inspired by the English painter, draughtsman and printmaker Harry Becker.
Much of Becker’s work was made outside in the fields – responding to the landscape and farmworkers at speed – to capture agricultural life in Suffolk in the early twentieth century.
With more than 130 paintings on show, and a similar number of unframed works and cards available to view, visitors are invited to see how Becker continues to influence the work of contemporary artists.
The annual exhibition will be accompanied by a Paint Out competition.
From vibrant abstracts and landscapes to figurative and impressionistic pieces there will be a range of work on display at St Peter’s Church in the village.
The exhibition is open from Friday, August 3 until Sunday, August 5. Friday, Saturday 10 until 5. Sunday 10 until 4. All works are for sale and card payments are accepted.
The Paint Out competition will take place on Saturday, August 4. Artists keen to take part should register from 9.15am at Holy Trinity Church, Blythburgh, where one of the competition subjects will be a figurative group working on the Becker grave.
On Saturday afternoon, the work produced will be displayed in St Peter’s Church, Wenhaston. Some pieces may be for sale.
