Exhibition by Michèle Griffiths

Posted on October 31, 2012 by

Michèle Griffiths is a “local” artist in several ways. She trained at Wimbledon School of Art in the early nineties (in Fine Art : Painting, under Prunella Clough ) and worked at Wimbledon Art Studios for many years. Her first career was in teaching languages at Putney High School and she lived in Southfields for 25years.

Michèle was brought up with both English (at school) and French (at home) but felt fully confident in neither. After overcoming this by teaching both, she realised that her best language was painting. She did her Painting degree in her thirties and went on to paint full time, exhibiting increasingly often and successfully in the UK as well as in international Art Fairs.

The Gallery was officially opened on the 1st March 2012 by Simon Betts, Dean of Wimbledon College of Art.

The exhibition for the opening was provided by the Wimbledon Society and created by David Woodcock, the Head of Collections. Entitled ‘Town and Country Wimbledon’ and spanning the years from 1780 to 1980, it afforded the first opportunity to exhibit some of the watercolours, by mainly local amateur artists, held in the Museum collection.
