Meet the Artist: Live Demonstration from Mouth Painter Jacky Archer
To mark International Mouth and Foot Painting Artists Day on 5th September and to raise awareness of this unique art form, The Bookshop East Grinstead has commissioned an event on Wednesday 4 September, 7.00pm with mouth painter Jacky Archer.
The event offers a rare opportunity to meet the artist, learn about her working process and watch in close up the intricate skills required by the artist to create her mouth-painting masterpieces.
After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1985, Jacky was encouraged to begin painting by staff at a local Day Centre and her husband Les. Despite believing that she had no creative talent as a child, Jacky now specialises in scenic landscapes that employ a vivid use of colour. Since her initial creative endeavours, Jacky has grown in confidence and went on to hold her first solo painting exhibition at the Barbican, London in April 2010.
Arrive: 7.00pm. The event lasts approximately 1 hour
Event is FREE, limited availability through www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/meet-the-artist-a-unique-art-event-with-mouth-painter-jacky-archer-tickets-68123347767
