Art Exhibition in Surrey

Sheep painting in progress, panda painting in progress. Caroline Skinner Art

This month I will be exhibiting some of my new animal art at Denbies Wine Estate, a great venue in Surrey, alongside other talented local artists. Some of my latest art in progress is shown above.

This colourful and diverse art exhibition is organised by First Steps Art, which was set up by Susan Sheen to give an outlet for her talented son Dale’s manga-style art. Dale has Aspergers and wanted to exhibit his art, but it doesn’t fit the traditional art group exhibition style, and now it doesn’t need to! Dale now proudly and successfully exhibits several times a year, alongside a mix of both new artists who have never exhibited before and experienced working artists. All styles and subjects are welcomed for the affordable art exhibitions, which are professionally organised by Susan who is very encouraging as she wants everyone to do well.

Here are some views of previous exhibitions:

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life” Pablo Picasso

An important difference to some art group exhibitions is one that helps prospective art buyers – there are no red dots on the wall with buyers collecting their artwork at the end of the exhibition. This means that if you like an original artwork enough to buy it, you can take it away with you straight away.  Prints and cards from some of the exhibiting artists will also be available.

Did you know that the chalk hills where Denbies have their vineyards give the same growing condition for their grapes as the Champagne area in France? While you’re there try their award-winning wines and Sparkling Wine (they can’t call it champagne), it’s really good! I’ve taken some to friends abroad and they are always amazed at the quality!

First Steps Art will be at the Mezzanine Gallery, Denbies Wine Estate, Dorking, Surrey RH6 5AA from 18th to 24th February 2019. For other dates see
