The Northampton Town & County Art Society’s latest annual exhibition at the refurbished Northampton Museum and Art Gallery is ending on 23rd January https://www.northamptonmuseums.com/whatson. Set up in 1913 this long standing art society continues to exhibit regularly. Our members and associates continue to produce high quality artwork, making the Society the county’s premier art group.
The exhibition has been well attended and has generated many positive comments on the quality of work. There is a range of different styles and media ranging from interesting sculptures to large scale oil paintings. There is something for everybody here.
The exhibition shows in these difficult times that the Society’s members are still active. Northampton’s art scene is still thriving, and this is reflected in the quality of the annual show. The show is well worth a visit.
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.
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.
It’s no secret that I’ve always been a strong supporter of local art events in Northamptonshire. As a result I will be showing my work in the 43rd Alderton Art Festival. The festival held over Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September as always will host an exhibition and sale of paintings. Furthermore, there are also craft stalls, beer tent and musical entertainment.
Set in the picturesque village of Alderton, South Northamptonshire, the festival will feature many high quality local artists. Above all this is a festival that is well supported with something for all art lovers. I will have some original paintings and prints on show for sale. Therefore, for Northamptonshire art lovers the festival is well worth a visit. So come along and have a look.
The Northampton Town & County Art Society is holding it’s latest annual exhibition at the Abington Park Musuem. Set up in 1913 this long standing art society continues to exhibit regularly. Our members and associates continue to produce high quality artwork, making the Society the county’s premier art group.
I’ve exhibited some of my work at these shows https://www.cordellgarfield.com/gallery/landscapes/, and I would recommend a visit to a Society show. A range of the county’s diverse artwork is always on show at the Society’s exhibitions. For instance, you will find original paintings, drawings, printed media or sculptures all produced by society members.
The Abington Park Museum exhibition runs until 20th January 2019. Opening hours are normally 12pm to 4pm and admission is free. You will need to check with the museum for opening days over the Christmas Holiday period (https://www.facebook.com/AbingtonMuseum/).
Well, this is my first blog post on my new website. So here’s a painting from my travels.
This is a scene across Kingley Vale National Nature Reserve towards Chichester. It’s a wonderful chalk grassland littered with ancient burial mounds, yew trees and woodland dating back 500 years and more.
The view painted here is at the top of the valley with its stunning panoramic view over the woodland with Chichester harbour in the distance.
