Local artist, Nick Grove, joined Oundle School as Artist-in-Residence for the Michaelmas Term.
Working mostly with oils, Mr Grove paints portraits, landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes, preferring to paint “en plein air”, where the immediacy and vitality of the subject can be experienced “in the raw”.
As Artist-in-Residence, Mr Grove looked at all aspects of student life and the role of the school within the community. He worked alongside the pupils in the art room, helping to develop their skills and giving them an insight into the day-to-day life of an artist.
This body of work will be showcased at his inaugural solo exhibition, Light Observations, at the Yarrow Gallery on Glapthorn Road from 12th to 25th January 2019.
