The Association of Sussex Artists Exhibition

Members of The Association of Sussex Artists will be exhibiting their work and demonstrating their creative process at Parham on Sunday 24th July 2022.  Working from gazebos in Fountain Court,  approximately a dozen professional and amateur painters, sculptors and potters from West and East Sussex will be showcasing their work. 

Here, we introduce a selection of the artists who will be joining us and explore their different artistic styles.

Mick Oakley 

With a lifelong passion for Ancient Egyptian art combined with a technological curiosity into how things are made, Mick’s artistic talent lies in replicating beautifully carved stonework that can be found on the walls of Ancient Egypt’s tombs and temples.

Recently he has completed a one acre Egyptian-themed meadow garden at Chiddingstone Castle in Kent.

Tim Wheeler 

A largely self taught artist, Tim has experimented with a variety of media and sculpting methods, having tried wood, clay and casting before arriving at his current preferred material, stone. Tim makes mostly abstract pieces which strive to combine forms with descriptive lines and finds inspiration in a variety of everyday items, from pieces of string to animals. His main and recurring theme however is abstracts derived from the human figure.
