The Spirit of Nature an Exhibition by Chas Alexander
Chas was born in Slough in 1952 and started painting at the age of 8. His career took him into the advertising industry where he worked as a designer, airbrush artist and creative director for some of the leading advertising agencies both within the UK and throughout the world. After leaving the industry in the late 1980’s he spent many years travelling the world, living with many native people, all of which had a profound influence on his work today. He started painting again in 2002. Since then his work has been published in various pagan journals and magazines and he is now working on a new exhibition entitled ‘The Spirit of Nature’ which will be showing in the Littlehampton Museum in West Sussex which runs from 9th June until 21st July 2010. The work will include images of the green man and spiritual places such as a series of Sussex Churches, the balance within nature and some more intricate work of wild flowers and animals. The media will range from oils to acrylic and from watercolour to pastels. This exhibition will be complimented with an outdoor exhibition running at Summer Solstice entitled ‘The Green Man in the Trees’
The launch party starts at 11am on Saturday 12th June in Littlehampton Museum. Admission is free and the proceeds from the sale of work will be donated to three women’s charities, The Goddess Foundation, Sussex International Women’s Day and Women’s Aid Worthing Branch.
