Soraya French, President of the Society of Women Artists (SWA) will open AppArt's Easter Art Exhibition & Sculpture Trail at Prior's Field School, Godalming on Saturday 1st April at approximately 10am. Soraya has been a regular exhibitor at AppArt over many years and we are delighted that she will open AppArt 2023 and also exhibit. "International Artist and Author, Soraya works in watercolours, oils, pastels, acrylics and mixed media with a variety of subject matters such as musicians, café scenes and African market scenes amongst others. Many of her subjects are travel based including people in everyday life situations. Light and colour are the two important elements in her paintings together with semi abstract passages with a sense of ambiguity." Appart expects to have over 800 artworks on show both indoors and on the sculpture trail in the Gertrude Jekyll inspired garden at Prior's Field School. It will be open daily between 10 am and 4 pm and admission is free.
AppArt was founded in 2012 by Evelyn & Gwyn Phillips to encourage interest in the visual arts in the Surrey area. They hold an annual exhibition at Prior’s Field School and smaller events at their Grayswood Studio. They have been curating exhibitions for over 20 years.
