Join us for some beautiful art themed around Chester and Cheshire as well as a few very unusual and funny additions to the exhibition by Carl Longmate!
Carl is a prolific Painter; whose work reflects a positive and optimistic view of life.
Starting as a young finished Artist in Advertising, Carl quickly learned to produce creative work with energy. Preferring to work from life now, Carl says:
“I like to experience my surroundings and absorb the atmosphere, be it town, or country. Painting outside suits me!
I believe in commitment to art, and that can means experiencing some discomfort,
I rarely plan, or even have time to fully mix colour, I just get on with it!”
Introduced to the Scottish Colourist’s when working at the Glasgow School of Art, Carl was definitely influenced. His work having a hyper colour quality, reminiscent of that style.
Carl is a published painter and has been featured in Cheshire Life Magazine, Pure Magazine, and Derbyshire’s award winning Arts Beat.Carl was also featured in Vernon Building societies Charity Calendar.
He is represented by several Galleries, and has won awards including The Colourfield Gallery Award, and Department of Trade and Industry best business award.
