RETURN TO EASTGATE ART GALLERY - NEW VIBRANT ARTWORK ON VIEW

Back to Basildon today to meet up with Trustees of the Eastgate Art Gallery at  their new address in this popular shopping mall. I was lucky to find Irene Butcher and Christine Sugg on duty and enjoyed a trip around this newly updated gallery with so many more pieces of great art on view.

Both talented Trustees had artwork on display, and while there I couldn't take my eyes off this fabulous butterfly which is to be auctioned by Basildon Rotary Concord Club in the spring.  Fortunately, I managed to have a word with the creator of the metal 'Peacock butterfly' Andy Wootton, who explained a little about his work as a former sheet metal welder. Both Terry Cohen and Gillian Howe, talented artists, began painting the artwork which is absolutely amazing and I can't wait to learn more about its future resting place.
