The celebrated East Anglian artist Maggi Hambling is the subject of an exhibition at The Old Rectory, Brockdish, from October 11-19.

The artist is equally at home painting George Melly for the National Portrait Gallery or making sculptures using cans of Special Brew.

In recent years her attention has turned to the coast near her house in Suffolk and her most famous and contentious work is the striking and monumental sculpture Scallop on Aldeburgh beach.

The exhibition will comprise new oil paintings and her first small, acrylics on paper.

Most works will be for sale with prices starting at £1000.

An extra bonus will be an illustrated talk by Maggi, based on her autobiography Maggi Hambling: The Works, which takes place at Brockdish Village hall on Monday, October 13 at 8pm, preceded by a private view at the Rectory from 6pm. Tickets are limited and are £7 each.

The exhibition, which opens from 2pm to 6pm or by appointment, is for charity and all profits will be shared between The Laura Case Trust, a medical charity, and Brockdish Church.

Laura was the daughter of David and Anthea Case of Brockdish who was killed in Uganda last year while working as a medical student in a hospital there.

For information on the exhibition and talk, contact David Case at davidcasefineart@btinternet.com, or 01379 668875.

Details of the exhibition and all images will also be on www.davidcasefineart.com
