Art at the Farm House: Marilyn Wood

Friday 8 June, 7:30pm

The foyer and café space at Love’s Farm House plays host to a rolling programme of art exhibitions by local artists. Our next exhibitor is Marilyn Wood.

Marilyn 1During her time spent studying fashion design at Newcastle upon Tyne College of Art and Industrial Design, Marilyn entered the prestigious Nation Wide bursary competition held by the Royal Academy of Art. In 1961 she won this competition in the Fashion Design category. The prize money allowed her to travel to Paris and study at the Jean Darroux Academy for six weeks to learn the art of couture making by directly modelling fabric onto the tailor’s dummy to create garments. Showing at Love’s Farm House Gallery is the body of work she submitted to the Royal Academy.

FullSizeRenderSince graduating, most of Marilyn’s working life has been in the fashion industry, working variously as a pattern cutter, production manager and design studio manager. She has run a theatre wardrobe department and worked in various Colleges and Universities teaching her craft.

Now living on Love’s Farm, Marilyn is exploring and experimenting with other art expressions and will have some of her recent twig collages on display. The exhibition launch evening is on Friday 8 June from 7:30pm — everyone is welcome and the bar will be open.

Exhibition: Melina LaFirenze

unnamed

Join us on Friday 9 March, 7:30pm for the launch of our seventh exhibition by local artists. Children (accompanied by a parent or carer) welcome until 9pm.

Melina La Firenze is an artist living and working in St Neots, born in Italy and brought up in London. She is self-taught and has been a painter all her life, starting with oils at age 12. Her paintings have been exhibited in London, Barcelona and Salamanca.

He work is often informed by patterns found in nature. The colours vibrant. She is obsessed with trees. One thing that is consistent about her work is that she never paints the same thing twice. This is a collection of brand new paintings, three of which are derivative portraits of Hans Silvester’s photos of Omo valley tribes people and two of which are a playful celebration of colour and pattern. Melina does work on commission including portraits.

Visit www.instagram.com/melinalafirenze to see more of her work. Love’s Farm House’s gallery space is curated by Neotists.
