Croydon artist Bev Jones is holding her first solo exhibition next month. She specialises in street scenes painted in bright acrylics, including people, shops, and trams.

The launch is on Saturday 9 August, 11am–1pm, at Matthews Yard, off Surrey Street, Croydon, CR0 1FF, and I will be there because I'm buying one of her paintings and this painting will be part of the exhibition. (I am very excited about this purchase!) Would you like to come along too?

I cant make that time, but I understand the passion for local art and it is lovely to see your excitement.

Right now Leytonstone Arts Trail is just ending but Leytonstone Festival has another week to. go including music & picnic next sunday, which always brings the community together. And Lets Fill Leytonstone With Art (put art your household. has created in your front window. for summer) is still growing. Amazing inspirational place.

so if you find just as much joy in croydon, I understand and appreciate it!
