A busy Saturday morning spent helping Julie and Ann man the Solihull Embroiderers' Guild stall at Saturday's Allsorts Art Fair at Solihull Arts Complex. We are always on the look out for new members and meet at Solihull Methodist Church on the first Tuesday of each month 2 - 4pm or 7.30 - 9.30 pm. Our next meeting is tomorrow and our guest speaker is crochet artist Pauline Fitzpatrick so please come along and join us if you can.
Next to our stall was King Pleasure himself artist Mark Skirving selling original prints of his wonderful atmospheric contemporary paintings. Mark is also a member of Solihull Artists' Forum,a group of contemporary craft based artists working and living in the Solihull area.
Two other members of Solihull Artists' Forum were also at Allsorts. Here is sculptor Mark Tilley with some examples of his work and his amazing portrait heads.
Mark welcomes commissions for his portrait head sculptures so if there is anyone you would like immortalised in stone or bronze then he would be only too willing to do one for you.
Here artist Fiona Payne takes her inspiration from architecture to produce vibrant colourful abstracted images.
