Cup Of Leigh Art Wall

'Wildlife Exhibition'

1st May - 31st May.

Chris Burrows is a self-taught artist, and a local Benfleeet resident, who began drawing only a few years ago in order to help with mental health issues which he was suffering with at the time. Despite being partially colourblind, Chris started on graphite/charcole colours, slowling easing himself into using coloured pastels. Over the past few years, he has worked enourmously hard in order to build a colour 'memory bank' and feels as though he is now ready to show off his drawings to the Leigh-On-Sea residents.

‘Dorisarty’ Exhibition

4th March-12th April

Dorisarty is a collective of three local women, Claire Burgoyne, Christine Hayhurst and Anne Pettenuzzo.  Dorisarty is so called because Doris is a sea goddess and all three of them have a strong connection with the sea. The name Doris has suffered pejorative use in certain quarters and the artists wished to reclaim and celebrate it.  The Dorisarty Collective aims to encourage the practice of and participation in art across the community. This exhibition showcases their most recent work and is available to view on the Art Wall at Leigh Community Centre.
