Exhibition in Las Negras

Two pastels and my prints at the exhibition

My exhibition in Hotel Cala Grande, Las Negras, http://calagrande.es, is now open and will run until 25th May. You can visit the exhibition at any time. It is in  the conference room.

On display are 20 of my original paintings and a selection of my signed, limited edition prints. I will be adding new work to the exhibition during the next couple of months.


About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.

    Looks good Margaret!

  2. I really enjoyed looking at your work, really beautiful. I’ve written a review of ALL the weeks exhibitions @ http://wp.me/p29ILL-tv – I used one of your photos as I didn’t have my camera (can’t take that as well as my sax!). I have given you credit for it though.
