This year we are delighted to have Pete Monaghan as our guest speaker for the third Judith Moy Annual Lecture.

Working in acrylics on wood panel using crayons, markers, collage and spray paint, Pete’s painting is underpinned by a discipline of sketching on location and re-sketching many times in the studio. Referenced by last year’s lecturer, Jeremy Yates, as a significant contemporary artist working in Wales, Pete’s work features in major galleries in the Principality and beyond.

His irrepressible passion for drawing and painting is reflected in his powerful pictures of neglected and dilapidated buildings which immediately capture the attention in expressing through paint the stories they have witnessed, reflecting the cycle of life’s battles and struggles, the sense of place and history.

This promises to be an inspirational, not to be missed evening and includes a ‘wine and nibbles’ interval.

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 – under the series heading ‘The Judith Moy Annual Lecture’. Euryl Stevens gave the inaugural lecture in 2017.
