The penultimate venue on the Trail (lucky for us) is venue 13! 6 The Firs is on a row of picturesque terraces that runs along the edge of the park in the heart of Combe Down. Four artists will be exhibiting in this lovely open space. Firstly, prolific painter Mike Service. Mike paints in oils with scenes ranging from small still life to vast seascapes. His studio, here at 6 The Firs, is a treasure trove of colour, atmosphere and light. A treat!
Next up, the extremely talented Bridget Baker. Bridget's wire animals portray character and form with deceptively simple lines. Botanical artist Julia Trickey uses watercolour to masterfully show the fragile beauty of flora, especially in its decline. Pat Betts makes beautiful cards as well as paintings and textiles, completing the mix of brilliant artwork on show at 6 The Firs!
