Art Exhibitions at Chartham Vineyard

What's on

Open every Saturday 10.30 to 5.00 from 2 April to 2 July, our latest exhibition features work by the following local artists:

  • Peter Livesey: Famous for his watercolour townscapes especially Whitstable Harbour, Canterbury and its Cathedral, Peter has exhibited widely in the UK including at the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour. His commissions grace walls all over the world.
  • Teresa Livesey: Living in a mountain village in the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland for two years, sparked Teresa’s interest in Fabric Art. A surprisingly therapeutic creative artform, Teresa creates pictures from scraps of fabric painstakingly sewn by hand.
  • Khoa Mahon: Khoa returns to exhibit her delicate range of handmade silver jewellery, embellished with freshwater pearls and gemstones. Her unique one-off designs are inspired by the beauty of nature and make ideal gifts.
