Langley artist features in museum exhibition
Published on 14th August 2012
An exhibition has opened in Sandwell featuring the work of Langley artist Ray Lockley.
It is being held at Haden Hill House Museum in Cradley Heath, and has a selection of watercolour and pastel work by Ray.
He is a self-taught artist and for many years has designed stage settings for numerous productions at Oldbury Rep. Some of the works on display in the exhibition are smaller scaled-down versions of the stage pieces.
Ray specialises in watercolours and pastels, producing work right across a wide spectrum, but mainly focuses on landscapes and local scenes around the West Midlands and Wales.
The exhibition features countryside and seaside scenes - the perfect antidote to the gloomy summer this year. The colours of the pictures fit perfectly in with the exhibition room at Haden Hill House.
Cabinet member for leisure services Councillor Linda Horton said: "It's great to be able to provide a space for local artists to exhibit their work and give our visitors a chance to see a variety of different exhibitions at the house."
The pictures are also for sale so would make a perfect present for any occasion - The exhibition runs until September 16 and for more details call 01384 569 444 or visit www.sandwell.gov.uk/museums
