We normally meet on the first Monday of each month at Devizes Town Hall.  However to ensure our monthly demonstrations continue, they have been successfully hosted on ZOOM for the time being - all members are welcome to 'tune in'. 


Monday May 10th 2021    7:30 pm :

Lawrie Quigley will be demonstrating how to paint still life in acrylics. 

He was born and brought up in Birkenhead on Merseyside and first went to Art School there, followed by subsequent study on the B.A. Hons Fine Art Degree course at Loughborough University and the Post-Graduate Master’s Degree at The Royal Academy Schools. He has continued to paint and exhibit his work in both London-based and regional galleries, as well as teaching part-time in a number of Art Colleges and Universities.

His work focuses on the three main figurative themes throughout British and European painting: Landscape, Figure and Still-Life. Lawrie strives to capture the mood and atmosphere conveyed by the visual imagery and sensations of everyday experiences, usually concerned with the quality of light and compositional structure, as well as the manipulative and expressive qualities of oil paint.

He has received numerous awards for his work, including the Turner Gold Medal and British Institution Fund whilst at the Royal Academy, as well as being a Stowell’s Trophy prize-winner. His work is held in many public and private collections, both in the UK and internationally – and he has been granted many bursaries, including Artist residencies at the Birmingham Royal Ballet and the Victoria Theatre in Bath.
Having lived in London for a number of years, he now lives in Christchurch on the Dorset coast.
