Plein Air Painters of Paziols

October 2009: Impressions of Languedoc II – seven artists, including Ruth and Bryan, who visited Languedoc on Bryan's painting holiday in May 2009 exhibited together, to present a variety of work which was either painted on site or developed in the months following the holiday.

Once again, the exhibition was a great success, with several sales and a well attended private view (we didn't run out of wine this time!).

Impressions of Languedoc

August 2008: Ruth and Bryan both participated in the group exhibition which resulted from Bryan's French painting holiday in Languedoc. Following one of the most crowded private views ever at Courtyard Arts, the exhibition of paintings, photography and video was a huge success and established itself as an annual feature.


July 2005: Our Passions exhibition was a great success, with visitor attendance building up to our Arts and Tarts party on the final Saturday. We had visitors from such far-flung places as Australia and Birmingham. Some came on foot, some by car, others by train, and some by motor bike! Live music was provided by Hertford duo Tumblebox. And we were delighted to sell several paintings.

Salon de Peinture

November 2004: Through our involvement in the Welwyn Anglo-French Twinning Association, we were invited to exhibit at the Salon de Peinture et de Sculpture in Champagne sur Oise, a village about 20 miles north of Paris. We loaded up the car and set off to France to exhibit our work alongside some 90 other artists. Although we didn't sell anything, we enjoyed looking at the wide variety of styles in art and sculpture and were overwhelmed by the generous hospitality of our Champagnois hosts. The French certainly know how to hold a private view in style. There were several hundred attendees and we all enjoyed a glass of wine, delicious hors d'oeuvre and dainty petits fours. The nibbles were a work of art in themselves!

Intimate Encounters with France and Flowers

June 2004: This was our first exhibition together, which we held at Courtyard Arts in Hertford. A couple of weeks beforehand, we were completely panicked, but it turned out to be a big success. We learned a lot, had lots of visitors and even sold several paintings.
