Future Events

Due to the current restictions on crowds as a result of Corona Virus outbreak, events and exhibitions will be different. I am still arranging events and trialling a few alternatives. Including video on my youtube channel.

Paintings are always on display in the studio window and visitors are welcome but please ring or email beforehand. In order to keep everyone safe, visitors are restricted to one person or one household group in the studio at a time. Masks to be worn indoors according to government guidelines. Hand sanitiser will be available. Some days paintings will be hung outside, weather permitting. Please get in touch by phone 07818240116 or email

Here’s the video walkthough created for Bucks Art Weeks so you can get a feel for how everything is set up. Please feel free to ask any questions.

Obviously this is a rapidly changing situation. As soon as the situation improves and life starts returning to normality, events will be posted here. In the meantime, please sign up for regular updates or check out the ways to support Cathy Read’s Art

And, if you missed Art on the Fence, here's the full Walk Through

Photographs are no substitute for real artwork but I’m improvising with more videos.
