Faces & Places by Belinda Larmour

Exhibition and Workshops

23 October - 22 November 2014

Local artist Belinda Larmour was recently awarded the Perpetual Trophy for best member’s work in show at the annual Arts Society of Ulster exhibition, judged by Neil Shawcross and Julian Friers. This new exhibition will show two strands of Belinda’s work, portraiture and landscape painting. Her small portraits concentrate purely on the face, without distraction of setting or costume and provide an interesting contrast to the sequence of much larger landscape works. These portray local places in a loose and vivid style.

Belinda will be holding workshops throughout the exhibition run looking at the process behind her paintings and the sketches and photographs used to develop them. Participants will also be encouraged to use their own photographs and sketches in imaginative ways.
