Art Talk:  Elphick and Elphick

Sat 20th May 12pm - 1pm

Deirdre and Martin Elphick will present and discuss their exhibition Elphick and Elphick.

Deirdre’s paintings and drawings are inspired by nature, be it landscape, still life or the human form. She has a particular interest in colour and mark making. Martin has been making things since a very early age; but he has concentrated on sculptures now for several years. His work is often abstract, but he returns to human forms and natural textures and to practice in figurative skills.
