Curtains Up For Local Artist

The work of one of our very own SAW artists can currently be seen at the Nottingham Playhouse. Eirian Bell's paintings were spotted by Playhouse Director, Giles Croft, who contacted her and asked if a selection of her paintings could be used as part of the set in the current production of 'Amy's View' by David Hare.
The chosen pieces are not, however, just used as set decoration but are an integral element of the plays narrative.
A member of The Nottingham Society of Artists and a contributing artist in the last two Sherwood Art Weeks, Eirian has fifteen of her paintings displayed onstage throughout each performance until November 20th.
Eirian says it has not only been an honour to be asked to participate but also "a wonderful and exciting experience".
As well as going backstage at the theatre to witness the construction of the set she has also taken part in public talks and enjoyed some first night partying!
Throughout the run visitors to the Playhouse are also able see an exhibition of her work in the theatre bar.

We'd like to congratulate Eirian on her success as she's proved art is not only for Everyone but also for Everywhere!
