A Life in Colour – Nantwich Museum
Are you looking for something to do this weekend?
Here in Home Instead’s home town, Nantwich sees an exciting art exhibition by local artist David Jewkes who through his art acknowledges that life is a game of chances.
Aged 19 and a senior aircraftsman with the Royal Air Force, David was sent to the Falkland Islands to repair the damage inflicted by the 1982 conflict. He promised himself that if he survived his six-month tour of duty in the south Atlantic he would go to art school.
On returning from the Falklands he gained a place at Winchester School of Fine Art where he achieved a 2.1 BA (Hons) in Fine Art (Painting). Then followed a scholarship at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Art in London, whereupon he was asked by renowned Scottish war artist, Peter Howson, to be his studio assistant. https://www.visitcheshire.com/what…/a-life-in-colour-p248221
