Vivienne Machell exhibition
Visitors to the Hub will see quite a tranformation in the cafe this week as the walls have been taken over by a kaledioscope of colour with paintings by Royston artist Vivienne Machell. A favourite with Hub regulars seems to be a study of her dogs Henry and Dottie, not surprising considering the place that our furry friends have in our hearts. Also on show are the beautiful views of the countryside around Royston, and scenes around the world. There are also a number of self portraits and family studied from way back in time.
You would think that after having spent months putting together her exhibition Vivienne might be inclined to put her feet up for a few days. The reality however is different as autumn is a busy time for artists and she now has to turn her attention to Royston Arts Society’s exhibition at the end of September. In fact when she submitted her entry form she had not even started the paintings so must remedy that and get her paintbrushes out again. As soon as these are finished there are three blank canvasses waiting to be completed for Cambridge Drawing Society’s autumn exhibition towards the end of October.
In spite of her busy schedule Vivienne will continue to be involved with her Hub exhibition. She will be at the hub every Saturday lunchtime for the rest of the month to chat about her art to anyone who is interested in her work and techniques.
