2017

2017

I’m looking forward to a very busy 2017.

Brantwood JUNE 17th – SEPTEMBER 4th

Firstly, I have a major solo exhibition at the prestigious Brantwood, Coniston, the former home and studio of John Ruskin from. I have been working on this body of work over the past 3 years and have just stated putting together the 32 page exhibition brochure. It is all ‘floral’ themed : weeds, meadows, hedgerows as well as garden flowers and a series of large hydrangeas paintings.

I am currently working on a series of water lily based mono prints which are going very well and have been very engaging.

I am really looking forward to seeing it all come together as it has been a really exciting and enjoyable body of work to produce.  You will be able to  order a full colour exhibition brochure from the online shop on this website prior to the exhibition. This will be released in May. As soon as brochures are released work can be purchased. However, the work will be hung in the exhibition until September.

An online brochure will also be available to view on this site.

There will also be many new cards and reproduction prints released to coincide with the exhibition.

The preview will be SATURDAY 17th JUNE. Invitations will be sent out late May. If you are not on my mailing list and would like an invite subscribe either via this site or email tracylevine@hotmail.co.uk direct.

For more details about Brantwood see their website.

First Prize !

So delighted and excited to have won First Prize in the Create Longridge competition. Brilliant day, wonderful atmosphere and buzz around town despite all the rain! Over 70 artists took part and many sat outside painting in the rain all day. Fortunately I had a barn up on the fell to paint under. A lot of pressure to complete the painting in the day and without messing it up. It wasn’t easy.  BBC 1  filmed the event for the regional  program Inside Out on Mondays at 7.30. They interviewed me after I won ..so I think I will be on telly sometime soon! An exhibition all the artists work is on display in The Longridge Gallery for this week until Sunday 11th September.IMG_4512IMG_4524IMG_4529

Create Longridge

SO Exciting to be taking part in this new event on Saturday 3rd September. I will be up on the fells above Longridge painting all day. Visitors welcome .. if you can find me!* There will be dozens of artists around Longridge painting and the winners are announced on the day.

As I used to live near here and spent many days cycling and walking in the area, this is a really exciting opportunity to return and paint it.

A week long exhibition starts on the Sunday in Longridge of all the finished entries.

* I have found a gorgeous spot to paint high above Longridge and the host property has generously offered to open up to the public and there may even be tea and cakes! To find me either ask at the hub in Longridge for directions or follow the bottom road out of town past Sainsbury’s and turn right at Alston Pub onto Chipping Lane. Stay on this road past Derby Arms and past Ferraris until you see a right turn at Four Acre Lane.
