June Wood, a member of the prestigious Eastbourne Group and one of the town’s most respected artists, will be opening her studio and garden to the public for the very first time this weekend and Bank Holiday Monday.

June is the daughter of a local fisherman and her love of boats, the beach, the sea and the pier, where she used to go dancing with her husband, Allan, has inspired many of her colourful canvases. A keen gardener and traveller, she loves to paint the vast array of beautiful flowers she grows at home and also the magnificent scenery around the Loire Valley and its picturesque chateaux. A keen dancer, June’s life-size painting of Strictly winner Louis Smith will greet visitors to her show. Canvas, Oil & Jardin August 29-31 from 11-4pm at 5 Victoria Gardens, Old Town. Free entry. Light refreshments.
