AN ARTIST will be painting live at the Evergreen Art Cafe in Daventry later this month.

Dale Bowen will be coming to the Sheaf Street venue on Saturday, February 22 from 11am to 3pm.

He has worked in the industry for more than 20 years, firstly for Coalport China and then for Wedgwood in their Prestige Department, where he created many one-off pieces for the collectors’ market and commissions. He has also exhibited privately in New York, Washington and San Francisco.

Dale said: “Although working in the pottery industry for so long and being creative with clay, it was always the joy of painting which was my first love and keeps me returning to canvas.

“When painting I like to use a variety of mediums as I feel the need to experiment and master as many methods as possible.

“Creativety comes from a number of different sources, observation or even conversation, inspiration always surprises me in the ever unusual ways it catches me.”

He will also be doing personal dedication to any pieces sold on the day where an exhibition of new originals and limited editions can be seen.
