Hopmarket Arts Sunday 21st July

The next Hopmarket Arts takes place from 10am to 5pm on Sunday 21st July, in the Courtyard of the Hopmarket off Foregate Street and Sansome Street, WR1

There will be Artists present, willing and eager to answer questions and explain the creative process and inspiration behind their work. They are Suzie Elizabeth Hunt – showing her work for the first time, Lenny Ledgerwood an amazingly colourful lino cut artist, Sam Fenner a quirky animal painter (the work, not the artist!), Rich Evans who designs and created fantastic glass pendants and Deb Stanley an award winning pencil and pastel wildlife artist of incredible detail and precision.

This family friendly event will also include an Event Information Centre where visitors can find out more about Worcester Events happening in August such as the Worcestershire Open Studios (24-26th), the Worcester Show (11th), the Riverside Arts (10th) and the Arts and Performance Weekend at The Royal Porcelain Works (24-26th).

Participating Artists are:

Suzie Elizabeth Hunt

Mixed Media Artist Suzie Elizabeth Hunt creates a vast range of artworks, mainly prints; which explore the different angles of the everyday landscape, our relationships with them and how we respond to them. She crops and carefully selects aspects from documented shots allowing the viewer to see their environment in a refined format. Left mute, the caption or title takes on the role of the missing voice.

Lenny Ledgerwood

Inky Buddy Prints: Lenny is a Worcester based artist producing hand-printed lino-cut cards and original limited edition prints.  She loves to use bold, expressive colours and her subject matter is as erratic as her train of thought!  Although Lenny has always trained and worked in the arts industry (originally as a theatrical costume designer and now a teacher of dressmaking and craft courses), printmaking has only fairly recently become a speciality. 

Whilst undergoing a course of chemotherapy in 2017 she took up lino-cut printmaking as a form of therapy to help her through some difficult times.  Now, out the other side of her illness, it has become a passion and a compulsion and she’s excited to be improving with each new piece of work and exploring the world of lino-cutting whilst she settles on her own unique style which can be best described as ‘whimsical wanderlust’.  Her love of travel and kitsch memorabilia influences her limited edition prints, whilst her greetings cards are inspired mostly by nature. 

Lenny’s hope is that her finished artwork brings as much happiness to her customers as the process of making it does to her.

Sam Fenner

Sam’s much sought after paintings don’t hang on gallery walls for long. She has an ever-growing reputation among artists and collectors for her distinctive animal portraits: a collection of eccentric animal portraits oozing with life and character, skilfully painted against a backdrop of vivid colour, and injected with the artist’s quirky sense of fun and humour.

One reason she engenders such loyalty among collectors is because she imbues her subjects with almost human characteristics – as well as being technically excellent paintings.

Sam continues to exhibit very successfully in and around the UK and sells to collectors worldwide.

Richard Evans

A self-taught Flameworker, specialising in borosilicate implosion pendants, its low coefficient thermal expansion properties creating a huge array of opportunity for colour, shape and form. Through continual discovery and experimentation in coloured glass applications, silver fuming and flame control, each unique piece is colourful, intricate and beautiful. He confesses to be, addicted to the endless pursuit of the perfect pendant.

Deb Stanley

Deb is a Malvern based artist specialised in creating highly detailed, realistic artworks using artist quality coloured pencils and pastels.  She is a keen photographer and prefers to work from her own references.  Her artwork covers a variety of subjects and is currently focused on wildlife, particularly big cats. 

She received The David Shepherd Award at Nature in Art in 2018 for Athena Emerging and again in 2019 for Drop Dead Gorgeous.  Sales of her artwork have enabled Deb Stanley Art to adopt two big cats at The Big Cat Sanctuary in Kent.
