Mark Smith would like to extend a huge thank you to everybody who braved the rain on Thursday evening to attend the Jeremy Houghton art exhibition at Webbs of Wychbold.
Guests were welcomed into the fabulous exhibition of art in the marquee with delicious nibbles, wine and local Worcestershire Piston gins, all provided by Webbs. During the evening there was a talk from Jeremy who shared his experiences of being artist in residence for Windsor Castle, doing a sketch for the Queen as a present, and with the RAF centenary commemorations. For the RAF art, he talked about developing a style that was timeless and how he was privileged to meet the four surviving battle of Britain pilots. He spoke about how he was inspired by visiting Africa and how he creates the image of movement for his subjects, including those famous flamingos.
Mark is really delighted to announce that the generous contributions from the raffles, silent auction and from artist Jeremy Houghton will take him well over his £25,000 fundraising target!
