Artist and musician Kerry McKenna brought the magic and mystery of her slate paintings to Gallery in the spring 2018 exhibition.
Since it opened nine years ago the gallery, had featured local, national and international artists across a range of genres.
In featuring slate paintings we added to the range of artistic works on our portfolio.
Kerry McKenna was born in Wales but now lives with her family near to Avebury in Marlborough Wiltshire, the famous village that’s inside an ancient stone circle. Many people have been drawn to Avebury with its magical qualities and Kerry, being one, specifically likes to paint magical mystical scenes onto pieces of slate. Her husband Tom collects, cleans and cuts the slates into shapes ready for Kerry to paint.
In addition to the magic inspired scenes that were on show in this exhibition Kerry also paints commissions for people in many countries especially the USA and Canada. She also holds Art On Slate workshops teaching the techniques of slate painting.
The multi-talented Kerry is also a singer songwriter / musician and has written and produced four albums of music for Diviniti publishers. She has also written a play – film – musical concerning the plights of our forests.
