Sunday Art House Leicester 2012 & extra day at 190 Clarendon Park Road

The Art House 2012 Leicester set off to a flying start this Saturday. The venue at 190 Clarendon Park Road where a selection of my work is on display, was buzzing. 

All nine houses are also open on Sunday 10th June, as the final day of the houses art trail. However, since this is a once-a-year event, Louise Ellerington has decided to open her Clarendon Park venue for an extra day, on Monday 11th June, from 11am - 6pm.

Local Art Trail - Art House 2012, Leicester

Maria Bragoli at Art House 2012, Leicester

I was delighted when Louise Ellerington invited me a few months ago to take part in this prestigious annual event. 

For two days only a selection of my fine art images will be on show at 190 Clarendon Park Road. This forms part of an artists' trail in a number of houses in Clarendon Park and Stoneygate and shows the very best of local artist talent with a wide variety of work, from photography and painting to sculpture and ceramics.

I finished setting up my pieces earlier this week and have a superb space to show my work.

Opening times are as follows:

Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th June 2012

11am - 6pm

190 Clarendon Park Road, Leicester LE2 3 AF

Please note that there is a free hopper bus service on these two days to transport visitors to the various venues.



'... unique creative slant' - Solo exhibition: Beyond Contemplation, Charnwood Museum, Loughborough

1st - 29th June 2012

Below is an extract from the Loughborough Echo about my latest solo exhibition. I would also like to thank Alex Gasson of Charnwood Museum whose organisational skills and enthusiasm for my work have helped to make this exhibition possible. And to Councillor Paul Harley for his appreciative comments about my work.

Art collection on show at Queen's Park

THIS month, visitors to the Queens Park Cafe Gallery in Loughborough will be able to set their eyes on the latest exhibition from Leicestershire artist Maria Bragoli.

The exhibition, titled Beyond Contemplation, is a vibrant collection of images, enigmatic and intriguing with Marias unique creative slant.

Coun Paul Harley, cabinet member for Leisure and Culture said: Were delighted to welcome an exhibition from such an accomplished local artist to the town.

With the exhibition running throughout June, including the public holiday, I hope residents will embrace the chance to enjoy her work for themselves.

Charnwood Museum Operations Manager Alex Gasson said: Id describe Marias style as work in which even the most everyday subject matter either shouts out at you, or makes you curious about where the image comes from and what it might represent.
