Louis Victory

Louis Victory is an architect by training, but has had a lifelong interest in photography, which he used and exhibited extensively in his profession. In recent years he has been able to focus more on expressive and artistic exhibition-standard images, often involving an unusual take on landscape and townscape. His ‘Points of View’ exhibition brings together colourful images taken on his travels over many years, but not entirely neglecting Totnes! Works for purchase are produced to exacting archival standards similar to those for any other artwork medium valued by art collectors.

DEAN PRIOR LIFE DRAWING GROUP ~ Summer Exhibition 2015

Established over twenty years ago this is the Group’s sixth annual exhibition of work which draws its inspiration from the human figure. Although drawing is focus of the work this will often lead to more developed work in different media so the exhibition shows a wide range of technique and interpretation. Each artist exhibiting has their own unique style and so this further adds to the variety of work on show. All work is for sale.

Dean Prior Life Drawing Group includes artists of all levels of skill from professional artists to beginners. The sessions are pay as you go and everyone is welcome to come along. There is no teaching but with the common aim of improving drawing skills through regular practice artists are happy to share their knowledge.
Working with professional models, A typical session will begin with quick, dynamic poses with longer poses towards the end.

For further information contact Ken Irvin on 01626 779291/0776711142 or kenirvin@onetel.com
