Network Arts started over 20 years ago and today the group has grown to over 115 members from all over the county. Membership is open to all, beginners, experienced and professional. We encourage local artists to meet, both to get to know one another, and to enjoy drawing and painting together. We hold regular monthly workshops at Moulton Village Hall to which we invited renowned artists and teachers to demonstrate their art in order that we can improve our skills.Image courtesy of Network Arts

Originally from New Zealand , Jamie is a self-taught artist whose work is produced in graphite pencil. The finest detail is achieved by etching fur or skin texture into the paper and then working over the top of it with darker tones of pencil.A large number of photographs are taken with up to ten pictures being used to create the composition of the drawing whilst also trying to capture the individual character of the animal to be drawn.Jamie also produces one off wood carvings made out of plywood which have a very tactile appearance
Jamie first exhibited his work in 2004 and has won a number of awards for his artwork.In a very short period of time a hobby became a profession and with a limited number of originals being available each year his drawings have become highly collectable. Many of Jamie’s pictures are available as Limited Edition prints in galleries throughout the UK .
Jamie has done a one week residency at Nature in Art in Gloucester for the past five years. Jamie has also demonstrated at Patchings Art Festival Nottingham and at Art in Action in near Oxford.Image courtesy of Jamie Boots
'Image & Imagination' by John Roger Hatton NDD
15 February - 15 March 2014, FREE
Roger's work is an interpretation of the landscape, observed in daily travel from home to the studio in East Northamptonshire, regular visits to the East Neuk, Fife, Scotland and to the Big Sur coast near Monterey, Southern California. The work is mainly water based media, newer works are tending towards Impressionism or full abstraction, experimenting with colour, light and texture sourced from sketches, reference photographs or images glimpsed on his travels and conveyed to paper or canvas directly from the mind, inviting the viewer to use their own imagination in interpreting the work.
Roger trained at Northwich College, Cheshire and Leicester College of Art, graduating in Graphic Design, Typography and Photography, and more recently at West Dean College, Sussex and is currently studying abstracting landscape with the Royal Watercolour Society in London where his work was exhibited in 2013.Image courtesy of John Roger Hatton
