On throughout May and June
Art in the Library at Wokingham Library features landscape and botanical paintings by Alison Messias. Alison studied art at senior school, passing at A level. She continued to draw and paint in oils and watercolour as a hobby. As a volunteer she taught painting at the local hospital day centre at Macmillan house for 15 years. After bringing up her two daughters she became a water colourist, working from home, for a local art publishing company, who printed engravings and etchings from the original plates. Alison is also on the committee of the Wokingham Art Society, and has exhibited for many years at their summer exhibitions.
‘Art in the Library’ gives local artists, art students and craftspeople a platform to exhibit their work and ideas by mounting their work in the library café for up to two months in the year. For further information please contact Laura de Moxom on 0118 978 1368.
