The work of artist Nicky Leigh, who lives in Aldbourne, will be showcased in a London exhibition for new and emerging talent.
Her painting, Looking Towards The Square, was submitted to the exhibition organiser and host, Radcliffe & Newlands, and has been accepted for display. The painting was inspired by the square in her home village of Aldbourne.
“I’m thrilled to have this additional opportunity to show off my work. Architecture interests and inspires me – so many people take their streetscapes for granted but I hope that people will see things in a different way through my paintings.”
Nicky’s painting will be one of several works on show at the offices of the financial planning company in Bonhill Street, London. Exhibitions started last year when staff moved into larger premises.
Christian Lennon, marketing director, said: “We host opening nights and private views but also give artists the opportunity to reach our clients coming to the office to see their adviser. Encountering art unexpectedly is always a pleasure and we believe art should be in all public spaces.
Next month, three winners will be chosen and, at the end of the exhibition in September, a fourth winner will be selected as a ‘visitors’ favourite’.
Nick specialises in colourful paintings of buildings and streetscapes as well as vehicles including campervans and scooters. This is the latest achievement for 52-year-old Nicky, a mum of three. She’s already artist in residence for upmarket coffee chain CaffeFratelli in the Capital and she’s just been selected as a partner artist for online site www.thescootergeek.com. Previously she was artist in residence at Drove Primary School in Swindon for three years.
