John Gage, Birmingham Buildings
Exhibition Opening, November 2nd 19:00 – 21:00
John has been drawing and painting since childhood. He enjoys both drawing and painting, specialising in pencil sketches, watercolour and acrylic. John trained as an architect, and consequently has a fascination with buildings in particular. He is always keen to try new mediums and techniques, and more recently has been exploring the potential of digital art techniques and animation.
John moved to Birmingham in 2004, and since then has been gradually discovering some of the city’s landmarks and recording them in pencil sketches. Prior to exhibiting at the Moseley Exchange he has held charity art exhibitions at Blakesley Hall and Sarehole Mill also in Birmingham.
In this exhibition John has tried to capture a range of Birmingham architecture and landmarks, from iconic modern buildings such as Selfridges through to the civic grandeur of the Council House. He has also included new arrivals to Birmingham such as the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Cube.
If you are interested in purchasing anything featured in this exhibition, a range of cards, prints and calendars are available. These items can be purchased via John’s website or alternatively an order form can be filled in at reception.
