PAD STUDIOS is putting on an exhibition of original art by North Yorkshire Artist Jo Stockdale, entitled “Jo Stockdale’s Animal Party Exhibition” from June 6th – 24th, 12.00 till 5.30pm, Mon-Sat. (Exhibition start and Preview Evening June 6th, 6.00- 9.30pm)
Jo is a very successful Commercial and Fine Artist with a nationwide range of Greetings Cards, Posters & Wrapping Papers distributed throughout the UK. She has single-handedly, steered her successful art business to achieve national coverage over many years.
Her commercial work is very humorous and has been compared with American Norman Rockwell’s characterful animals. Hence the “Animal Party” theme for this exhibition. Which is drawn from her latest range of Cards.
The Hull Exhibition is in support of the National RSPCA Week which is June 6th-12th June. (10% of sales to RSPCA) plus donations received in the event space.
The local branch is organising an Animal Art Competition for Hull school children that will be displayed at the Hull and East Riding Animal Centre, Clough Road and also an Amateur Artist Exhibition has been curated by Vicky OGrady and Bespoke Boutiques which will run at St. Marys Church, Lowgate from 6th-12th June. Jo and I will be judging the children’s Art competition at the RSPCA centre on the 6th June.
She also takes on private Animal Oil Paintings commissions, which again are of superb quality.
I think it will be a very popular exhibition at PAD STUDIOS.
Jo is also developing some amazing large paintings (charcoal & col. wash) of animals in movement. Featuring large scale prints of her artwork being applied to domestic or office interiors. She is working exclusively with The 1 Gallery on this. See: The 1 Gallery (see War Horse below).
