Tony Munns and Deepings Art Club at Willoughby Gallery

Two exhibitions will open at the Willoughby Memorial Trust Gallery on Wednesday 13 July.

  • Tony Munns: The British Coast on Canvas
  • Deepings Art Club: Paintings

Tony Munns is building a reputation as a fine artist, painting in acrylics and focusing on the subjects that are closest to his heart – namely, the sea and the British seaside. His broad impressionist technique, combined with an eye for graphic detail and strong narratives, give his work a distinctive yet approachable style.

Deepings Art Club meets once a week in Deeping St James. The paintings in this exhibition have a variety of subjects and media.

Both exhibitions run until Wednesday 3 August.
