New Art Wall Exhibit - John Harwood

Our latest art exhibition on our Community Art Wall has been installed this week and is open for public viewing. Artworks from John Harwood will be on display until 14th March.

John started drawing and painting after early retirement. Having enrolled in evening classes, he started sketching with pencil and charcoal, moved to watercolours and finally to oils. In Leigh-on-Sea he ran his own gallery for a while, painting landscapes and receiving commissions for portraits. John is a member of Southend Art Club, has won awards for both his portraits and landscapes and acts as a group leader for local portrait painting workshops.
