Guest exhibitor and BP Portrait Award Artist
Tyndale Arts Week is excited to announce a very special event, An evening with Sophie Ploeg, during which she will discuss her paintings and inspiration.
Sophie is a Dutch artist based in Thornbury, who specialises in portraiture and drapery. Her paintings of lace show her love of detail and history. As a trained art historian it is no surprise that much of her inspiration comes from art history, especially the Dutch and English 17th century.
She has exhibited her work widely, such as at the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the National Portrait Gallery, London for the BP Portrait Award and the Pastel Society. Sophie was awarded the BP Portrait Award Travel Scholarship in 2014.
Sophie will explain and show how art history influences her work, how she got so involved in painting lace, and what her painting process looks like.The talk coincides with an exhibition of Sophie's paintings at Kingshill House in Dursley.
The exhibition will be open during the evening talk and will continue during the exhibition weekend of Tyndale Arts Week (5, 6 & 7 October 2018)
