LONDON ARTIST CALLING ON LOCAL PEOPLE TO HELP CREATE NEXT ARTPIECE AT HER EXHIBITION IN WIMBLEDON IN OCTOBER
London artist Jodi Jones is bringing her mixed media abstract paintings to Wimbledon Village next month and is inviting local people to help create her next piece of art.
The four-day exhibition opens on Saturday 3 October at the Norman Plastow Gallery in Lingfield Road. Anyone who stops by will be encouraged to create a shape by drawing or using a pair of scissors, a coloured piece of paper and some instructions. By the end of the exhibition, Jodi will collate all the shapes together and use this to inspire her next painting.
