WGC Photographic Club & Sculptor Andy Thomas
The latest exhibition at the New Maynard Gallery runs 16 Jan - 28 Feb 2015, featuring sculptures by Andy Thomas alongside photography by the WGC Photographic Club.
The Welwyn Garden City Photographic Club are affiliated to the East Anglian Federation of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain who also run informative courses and events. Their weekly programme includes illustrated Talks and Workshops on many different subjects such as portraiture, natural history and wildlife, travel, techniques on composition and exposure, also understanding Photoshop.
Andy Thomas is an artist who worked in many media before deciding to specialise in sculpture. A love for wood and tactile materials encouraged him towards a concept of 3D. The beauty and constant changing of the human form with the memories and evolution of life provide new inspiration for every work.
Andy took the decision not to take the normal route of studying Art at college but to learn from first hand experience visiting many professional sculptors, both international and local, having work experience and learning from them.
