Greenfield Arts Latest Exhibition

'In the Midst of…My Grand Tour’ by Stephen Wiper

Thursday 9th February – Wednesday 1st March 2017

Greenfield Arts invites you and the public to the preview of our latest exhibition by Stephen Wiper on Wednesday 8th February 6pm to 8pm.

Stephen hopes this exhibition captures his love of drawing, painting and printmaking and serves as a good example of his longstanding belief that we have the right to explore the world creatively. Stephen is fascinated and reassured by the changing world, how we see and what we observe over time, by the ebb and flow of nature including ourselves. He is interested in the ways in which people impact on and engage with their environment, and the options we discover to make our mark, building bridges, carving names into stone, spraying symbols.

‘This exhibition consists of new work, paintings, etchings and drawings, created since 2014, inspired by various ingredients including my environment, the way people leave a mark on places, music I’ve listened to whilst working, exhibitions I’ve seen, photographs snapped on walks and books and postcards containing works I admire by particular artists. The work explores various things and tests different approaches. I’d not explored acrylic paint and medium before this exhibition or created an exhibition and had previously been rather more traditional in my painting technique, not experimenting so much.’ Stephen Wiper

Stephen will be in attendance at the preview event with artworks for sale throughout the exhibition. The evening will include an artist talk at 6:30pm by Stephen, along with the auction of two paintings – one for the 700 Club charity and one for the Bridge Centre for Visual Arts charity in Darlington at 7:15pm.
