Jane Austin

I have been very busy building on the success of last year. I have become involved in several exhibitions. East Morton Biennial was lovely and I am returning in the new year to give more workshops. I took part in the Art and Photography Exhibition at Dean Clough for Ravenscliffe which was a great success. In July I exhibited at the Holmfirth Artweek and also The International Buxton Spa Prize, held at The Green Man Gallery, Buxton for the whole month of July. There is a huge amount of art and culture in the town, so well worth a visit. Painting en plein air has become a feature of my work this year.

The biggest news is that I have secured a solo pop up exhibition 9th/10th September, 11 until 3pm each day. There is a beautiful grade listed building standing empty less than a mile from my home. I have worked with the Churches Conservation Trust to secure two days for an art exhibition with free demonstrations running throughout. This will be my first solo exhibition in over a decade so a massive deal for me, I'm very excited and hope that you all can come along. All Souls is a beautiful setting but the building gives limited access due to steps and uneven floors. There are no facilities, heat and little lighting but all the more charming and challenging to use the space, I hope that you like it.

'From Beacon to Pike' was a very popular lithograph of mine showing the vista across Halifax. The town and the way in which I paint have gone through many changes over recent years so I will be introducing a new painting for new times at this exhibition with limited edition giclee prints.

When Woodmansterne Publishing Ltd took up the image of my painting 'Smell the Roses' last year the card was available in Australia, New Zealand , Turkey and Italy. It is now available in the UK and sold amazingly well for Yorkshire Day. Look out for it now in the shops.

My public facebook page, Jane Austin Watercolour, is the place to keep up to date with regular news. I upload images of work in progress, lessons and much more, with explanations of painting techniques. You can also chat with me and ask questions.
