Art at The Gather

Artist of The Month – JULY – Gordon Hickman

Exhibition is open daily, except when the community room is in use.

Gordon Hickman is a self-taught artist living in St Bees. Gordon has always enjoyed the outdoors and wildlife and uses them as the inspiration for his art, though he enjoys painting any subject that catches his eye, bright colours are his passion. 

Since early 2020 Gordon has painted pet portraits for family and friends, mainly dogs and cats. Bringing out the pet’s character through art can be a challenge, but well worth it when the owner (s) immediately recognise their pet and give positive feedback. Examples of pet portrait work can be seen in the exhibition.

Soft pastels are the preferred medium, Gordon uses mainly Unison and Derwent brands and paints onto “Clairfountaine” Pastelmat Board. 

We welcome local artists to exhibit their work in our light and spacious Community Room.
