I will be running another Introduction to Portrait Painting Workshop in Oils at Northampton’s Museum and Art Gallery on 19th February 2022.  My workshop is an ideal introduction to portrait painting for newcomers and more experienced painters alike. A portrait in oils will be produced, with attention to facial proportions and tone to create a realistic image. Working from a reference photograph and a step by step process, I will guide you through painting a portrait. The workshop is perfect for both beginners and painters with some experience. Price £65 per person.

The museum is a great venue to hold the workshop and have a central focus for Northampton art again. After opening on 10th July 2021 following a major redevelopment which began in 2017. It’s now up and running with a selling gallery and permanent collections on show. To find out more about the museum click on this link. https://www.northamptonmuseums.com/site/index.php 

My portraits and landscape paintings are also on show at the museum until January 2022. Here is a selection on my website. https://www.cordellgarfield.com/gallery/portraits/

Really pleased that my paintings are now showing at Northampton’s Museum and Art Gallery from October to the 31st December 2021. The museum opened on 10th July 2021 after a major redevelopment which began in 2017. It’s now up and running with a selling gallery and permanent collections on show.

For me it’s so important that I’m exhibiting not only my portraits, but also landscapes of Northamptonshire as well. The county has some beautiful views and waterways which I always try and capture when out and about. https://www.cordellgarfield.com/gallery/landscapes/

It’s really great to have a central focus for Northampton art again. The town has been desperate for a such a development, particularly following the difficulties surrounding the pandemic. The museum has recently won the Heritage Organisation of the Year 2021, which is a testament to its redevelopment and the staff involved in running it. For instance, it has a full programme of online and in person events including workshops, talks and lectures. Above all for a local artist like me there is no doubt the museum offers the perfect setting for displaying my work. To sum up, I seriously recommend paying a visit and having a look around at all the exhibitions on display. Maybe have a coffee and a bite to eat at the new cafe as well!

New studio space for artist Cordell Garfield! As an artist it’s great to be in my new studio space with the move of the NN Contemporary Art site http://www.nncontemporaryart.org/spaces/. The new central museum next door, opens on 20th June 2020, and my new artistic space is ideally located for me.

Above all the larger new space displays my artwork in a way I haven’t been able to before. This link shows a selection of my portraits, some of which I can now show in the flesh! https://www.cordellgarfield.com/gallery/portraits/

I intend to use this new studio space not only creatively, but also for the Open Studios in September. Keep your eye on developments as I will be selling some of my work in the Open Studios. As always there will be a range of portraits, but also some of my landscapes as well.
