JAN- FEB 2015

The House of Manannan Gallery in Peel on the Isle of Man is currently showing a “Celtic Style Exhibition” to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the birth of Archibald Knox. Works that were shown to visitors at the Guild’s 2013 Festival on the Island are on display.
Pride of place at the Exhibition is the work of Guild artist Yvonne Bell.
A silk cope of Manx artwork from ancient slab crosses was painted by Yvonne for the Island’s Bishop.

The Guild of Silk Painters
is an international, non-profit making organisation,
based in Great Britain whose aim is to promote and
inspire the art of silk painting.

Membership of the Guild will provide you, amongst other benefits, with a network of fellow painters of all levels, abilities and locations to share and exchange ideas and information through the Journal and the website.

Artists often work alone and miss the stimulation that
can be gained from creative interchange. The Guild will encourage you, through your local branch, to meet
regularly with other painters for demonstrations, workshops and lectures.

There are also opportunities to showcase members' work both here in the galleries and in the Journal.
