Unique art exhibition coming to Ipswich: Every Picture Tells A Story

POSTED ON: 12/01/2018

TWO well-known local artists are holding a FREE exhibition in Ipswich - exploring the stories behind the artwork.

Every Picture Tells a Story features 20 works from Jenny George and Anthony Wooding, whose art has been snapped by buyers in the past.

Anthony, who is also the managing partner of Kerseys Solicitors, has previously displayed work inspired by the Native American thinker Lame Deer at the Town Hall.

And the exhibition will be held at the law firm’s headquarter’s in in Lloyds Avenue from mid-February for six months.

Anthony, who has practised law for over 30 years, has a history of supporting the arts in the area and regularly promotes local artists at Kersey’s offices.

The former Oxford University student, whose work goes under the name of ‘Ant Artist,’ said: “The work is not intended to simply adorn a wall, but to create a relationship with the viewer. We hope it will resonate with people and give pause for thought.

“We’ve previously exhibited the work of local artists and the time was right for me to exhibit some of my own work.  I’m grateful to the team at Kerseys for all their support.”

The work on display will explore the use of colour and texture and invite people to reflect on the subjects portrayed. It will look at history, culture and nature.

Jenny, whose quirky take on a well-known local landmark, The Wine Rack, proved a hit, has exhibited her work at galleries across Suffolk.

She added: “We want to convey a story with a work. Within the paint and the ink, within each brush stroke and line, there is the intertwined story of history, of family, of local and distant cultures, of existence, and of nature.”

The exhibition opens Friday 16th February and closes Friday 13th July.

The exhibtion is held at Kerseys Solicitors, Lloyds Avenue, Ipswich and will be open daily 9am to 5:15pm.
