The Tuesday Paintings

at Ham and Jam

7th Sept to 22nd Sept 2017

Evening with the Artist 14th Sept, 6pm to 8pm

Since 2014, a small group of artists have been meeting on Tuesday nights at the Norman Long Studio School in Oyston Mill. Each week, a member of the community is paid to sit or stand while the artists, both professional and amateur, wield their brushes and try to capture the character in front of them in around 2 hours. While some of those depicted are professional models, most are members of the community – artists, writers, musicians- who Norman has met in local cafes.

Over the past year, models have been invited to return for a second sitting, enabling the artists to complete larger paintings. This exhibition presents a selection of Norman Long’s finest “Tuesday Night Paintings”.

The exhibition is housed in Ham and Jam, a spacious, stylish, independent coffee shop in the heart of Preston which is enthusiastically involved in supporting the arts in the local community.
