About Mary Beaney (Nee Reay)
There are no upcoming events
The major element of my work is an attempt to create atmosphere - real and unreal - with the subtle use and blending of rich colour and layers of texture, aiming to balance a moment in time past and the contemporary of today.
During the last 25 years I have curated and promoted many exhibitions throughout east sussex and beyond. Am owner of Art on the River Exhibitions (.uk), and co-founder of Chalk Gallery Lewes of which I no longer participate.
For the more discerning I tutored acrylic workshops 'Art in the Community' in the village hall for a number of years.
I have recently retired from the 'workplace' as I am now well past my sell-by-date so divide my time between making art and researching my family tree which at present dates back to the 1500's.
My work is held in collections throughout Europe, Australia, South Africa Canada and beyond.
