There are just a few more days to catch this month’s featured artist exhibition at Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre.

David Morris’s paintings have been exhibited at the Catto Gallery in London with the Royal Institute at the Mall Galleries, the Royal Watercolour Society at Bankside, the Lincolnshire Artists’ Society and in many provincial galleries and open exhibitions.

In both 1996 and 1997, he was a prize winner at the Royal Watercolour Society open exhibition and he was a co-founder of the Louth Art Exhibition.

Artist David Warman said: “This is a fantastic exhibition and the best I have seen recently.

“David and I worked together at Grimsby College for many years. He is a tremendous artist.”

David Morris’s initial training was NDD Furniture Design (Special level), followed by the Art teacher’s Certificate at Leeds College of Art.

He also studied for a second NDD in ceramics when he was teaching in Kingston upon Hull.

Between 1962 and his early retirement in 1990, he was Lecturer in Ceramics at Grimsby School of Art, a full member of the Craftsman Potters Association and ran a pottery studio with his wife Avril.

His transition to topographical watercolour painting began during the 1980s and since then he has exhibited regularly and has had many images reproduced as greeting cards, giclee prints and limited editions.

The exhibition runs at the centre until Sunday, April 27.
