Special Event

Artist’s Walk and Talk

13 August 2024
10.30am - 1pm

Join James Power for a closer look at the museum’s paintings through the eyes of an artist.

The Artist’s Walk and Talk reflects the spirit of the Slow Art movement in which only a handful of paintings are contemplated and discussed. Your facilitator, artist James Power, will reflect on Alfred Munnings approach to painting through the eyes and experience of a painter.

A light buffet lunch will be served in the Dining Room of Castle House (the museum) following the walk and talk where participants can continue their discussion.

For the last thirty years of his working life, James held the position of stud groom for a major stud farm, Juddmonte Farms, Cheveley, Cambridgeshire, UK. He retired in 2011 and today gives his time and knowledge to the industry and to charities in which he has become involved.

Working in oils, watercolours and pastels, with a passion for a wide range of subject matters, particularly Suffolk rural life, James is an active member of The Society of Equestrian Artists and was elected Full member of the Institute of East Anglian Artists in 2021. He has exhibited in major galleries in London and throughout the UK and has paintings in collections around the world, including in the Garrick Club, London. He was Artist in Residence to York Racecourse in 2016 and winner of the Best Racing Picture, 2000, sponsored by Horse & Hound Magazine.

Currently James teaches equestrian art and is a regularly tutor at the Munnings Art Museum, Dedham, Essex, UK.
