‘Craig Payne and friends’ is a new concept to bring the high quality work of established artists to local events in the South East. With a focus on equine, rural life and wildlife subjects and scenes there is something for everyone who enjoys the rural ways of life.
The main event of the year will be our stand at Hickstead‘s Royal International Show which will include work by Tony O’Connor (from Ireland), Peter Bainbridge, Belinda Sillars and myself, Craig Payne.
Our stand can be found in the Shopping Village and is number 163. If you’re wondering how you’ll be able to find the stand, then look out for a painter sat to the side of a stand! Pete will be starting the five day Show with a blank canvas and will be working on this through the event til he finishes it on the Sunday!
Tony O’Connor will be visiting Hickstead for Thursday afternoon and we are very much looking forward to welcoming him. With over 120,00 fans on Facebook and pieces on display all over the world, Tony and his art is very much in demand. We will be holding a ‘Meet and Greet’ where you will be able to meet Tony, asking him any questions and purchased signed prints and originals.
We will also be at the following events:
29th & 30th August – Firle Place Horse Trials
13th September – Country Fair @ Chiddingstone Castle
19th October – Moorcroft Raceday @ Plumpton Racecourse
If you have any queries please do get in touch and I am open to suggestions of where you would like to see ‘Craig Payne & Friends’ in 2016.
