Original Painting by D. Mariana Robinson

When you’re next eating your cornflakes or Weetabix, consider the multiple uses of the cardboard packet.  This year’s Christmas Art Exhibition is entitled “I Saw Three Ships” and includes a display of 1/200 scale model warships, battle ships and ocean liners painstakingly created over the last sixty years, by MichaelJ.Tunnicliffe.

The Mariana-Art Gallery Christmas Exhibitions is on a nautical theme this year, with new original paintings in both watercolour and Atelier Interactive on canvas, as well as cards and prints by D. Mariana Robinson and transport artist Michael J. Tunnicliffe.  “We’ve covered a number of unusual themes over the last four years and this exhibition will be no exception” says gallery owner, Mariana.  “We’re able to offer visitors a chance to see model ships, nautical memorabilia and naval binoculars as well as a range of gifts, photographs, silver jewellery by Debbie Aldecoa and ceramics by Sarah D’Arcy and Tanya Aplin.”

The Exhibition is open from Sunday 25th November through to Monday 10th December 2012 at The Mariana-Art Gallery, East Street, St. Briavels, Gloucestershire, GL15 6TQ.  Open daily from 10.30 – 5.00 (closed Wednesdays).  Do come along and see a wonderful array of paintings, prints, photographs, greetings cards, books and of course those model ships.  You’ll be so inspired that “Boxing” Day will have a whole new meaning when you start cutting up those cardboard cereal boxes to start something creative.
