Woolton Hill artist Helen Grimbleby celebrates wedding anniversary by exhibiting work in Cheddar, Somerset where she got engaged

An artist from Woolton Hill is celebrating her wedding anniversary by exhibiting some of her work in the place where she got engaged.

Nature artist and tutor Helen Grimbleby got engaged to her husband in the town of Cheddar – famous for being set in the largest gorge in the UK and for its cheesy namesake – in Somerset 18 years ago.

The 18-year anniversary coincides with The Arts Quarter Gallery winter exhibition that Mrs Grimbleby will be exhibiting two of her landscape paintings in.

Hazy Summer Days has been described as “an evocative landscape in acrylics with expressive brush strokes”, while Rocky Mountain 1 “places big scenery up front with a bold statement somewhat reminiscent of Cheddar Gorge”.

Both paintings followed an art field trip to the Black Mountains of Wales where Mrs Grimbleby undertook exploratory sketches and plein air painting.

She will be exhibiting alongside several other local artists in Newbury Town Hall from today (Thursday) to Sunday, December 3, as part of Newbury Art Group.

Mrs Grimbleby will be in the town hall in person today until 2.30pm to talk about her work,

She will also be teaching art for wellbeing for absolute beginners at West Berkshire Museum from February 2024. Details for this can be seen on her website at https://www.burbleartstudios.co.uk/

The Arts Quarter Gallery winter exhibition in Cheddar runs until January 14.
