I’m delighted to bring you this week a press release forwarded to me by Michael Sandle, RA, about his forthcoming major exhibition in Chester which opens this Friday 18th May in the Grosvenor Museum.
Michael told me in his email “Weirdly a very long time ago when I was doing my National Service in the Royal Artillery when aged eighteen I was stationed in Chester and some evenings I was able to attend the local art school as an evening student – now this very same art school has become the Grosvenor Museum – a nice bit of symmetry I feel.”
Winner of many prestigious awards Michael has also produced numerous public commissions. The two local ones you might be familiar with are:
- 1997 “The Viking”, Port Erin Arts Centre, and
- 2001 Monument to Sir William Hillary, Marine Gardens, Douglas.
The exhibition runs until 7 October 2018 so if you are planning a trip across this might be an exciting show to add to your itinerary.
