Ashby Art

Art by Marie South

Outdoor Art at Ashby de la Zouch Art Festival

Marie participates in the Ashby Arts Festival Outdoor Gallery most years.

The challenge is to paint 8’ x 4 ‘ plywood boards to illustrate an annual theme for the Outdoor gallery.  Interpreting the theme for each Festival and producing art which is suitable for viewing at a distance is a great challenge and great fun. The boards are emulsioned and then painted using acrylic paint.  The completed board is then varnished,  to provide additonal weather proofing. The boards are on display for around a month in the centre of Ashby de la Zouch as part of the Ashby Art Festival and can be purchased from the Festival organisers, see http://ashbyartsfestival.co.uk/
