Euryl Stevens spoke at the Judith Moy Inaugural Lecture 2017

Euryl Stevens qualified in painting and drawing at Birmingham College of Art. She was a graduate and silver medal winner at the Royal Academy and went on to win a place to study at The School of Rome in 1965, with the judges, Ruskin Spear RA and Sir Philip Hendy, describing her work as ‘the most original by far’. Working in a variety of media, including large stitch work, Euryl’s subject matter ranges from the landscapes and characters of her native Rhondda Valley to bold nudes, brazen women and gamblers, all full of humour, energy and colour. Euryl explains “there is a strong instinct within me to describe the places I love, not for reputation nor for the good of others, but as an inherent expression of my personal thoughts and feelings”.

As many of you are already aware, long standing Shropshire Art Society member Judith Moy passed away in November 2016. Judith had been a member of the Society since 1991 during which time she served for several years as a valuable and highly respected member of the Committee, offering and sharing with us her huge knowledge and experience of the art world, exhibitions and painting. Her love of Art, and commitment to the process of painting, exhibiting her pictures and the tutoring of others was a huge part of Judith’s life, and her work ethic, boundless energy and infectious enthusiasm an example to all. To mark the immense contribution that Judith made to the life and well being of the Society, we will be organising an annual lecture, commencing this year – under the series heading ‘The Judith Moy Annual Lecture’.
We are delighted that Euryl Stevens gave the inaugural lecture.
