Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Roundabout -

A gallery in Ash­ford will be hold­ing a pri­vate view­ing of the work of four South East Open Stu­dios (SEOS) artists.

On Fri­day, art lovers are in­vited to the Cre­ative Col­lec­tive gallery at Park Mall gallery from 6pm to 8pm, to view orig­i­nal art­work, en­joy drinks and nib­bles or even pur­chase paint­ings.

Work will be on show by Eric Boadu, Maria Khatcha­tourian, Mi­lan Limbu and Morag Newens.

Maria Khatcha­tourian’s post­hu­mous exhibition will fea­ture a range of mid­dle eastern, art deco and wa­ter­colour paint­ings.

Eric Boadu will be dis­play­ing a range of jazzy paint­ings, Morag Newens will be show­cas­ing beau­ti­ful wa­ter­colour work, and Mi­lan Limbu will be ex­hibit­ing his mod­ern ar­chi­tec­tural, ab­stract work.

The SEOS of­fi­cially runs from June 3 to June 19, but the Cre­ative Col­lec­tive work will stay in the gallery un­til June 25 to give more peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to see it.

Betsy Aidinyantz, of the Cre­ative Col­lec­tive, has been elected SEOS chair­man.

She said: “I’m kind of ex­cited be­cause we did not want SEOS to end. We are hop­ing to carry on and make it as suc­cess­ful ev­ery year and maybe more.

“It is a great hon­our and priv­i­lege to be serv­ing the SEOS.”
