We are proud to announce that the Bede Village Art Group will be exhibiting their work at Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery.
The Museum and Art Gallery is set in the beautiful surroundings of Riversley Park. The museum plays host to a lively temporary exhibitions programme. It also has permanent displays of art and social history. There is also a gallery dedicated to local writer George Eliot.
The Bede Art Group was formed in October 2011 by Pauline Ritchie, an occupant at Richmond Bede Retirement Village. After villagers had expressed an interest in drawing and painting, Pauline’s son, Stuart Ritchie kindly offered to host some free art sessions for our villagers offering an insight to drawing and painting. Stuart Ritchie is a highly accomplished digital designer & art director in his own right. Some of the villagers already had a shared interest and some have never drawn or painted before. After a few years, Stuart had to discontinue with the class due to work commitments. But Bede villagers decided to continue with the sessions with the assistance and support of Activities Manager Louise Smith, who has a huge interest in art herself. The Bede Art group consists of various levels and abilities. However, they’ve certainly proved that it is still possible to learn new things... at any age!
The exhibition will take place from Saturday 11 October to Sunday 7 December 2014.
