We visited the Beecroft Art Gallery today and were immensely impressed, not just with the collections on show, but also with the proactive engagement of the gallery organisers with local art colleges to encourage young artists as well as with the friendly helpful staff. It was a very inspiring and lively atmosphere and a real pleasure to visit. I was particularly impressed by the exhibition of rare paintings from the renowned East London Group of artists.

As a 2nd year fine art student at south Essex college, I was recently able, at the last minute after being let down, with the help of the focal point gallery I was able to exhibit my site specific artwork on the big screen. And with the last minute help from Mr James Ravinet, this was rectified, thank you all so much to all at the gallery for your help in this matter. looking forward to future exhibitions at this important building as well as an important stepping stone for students exhibiting.

Call for Hours

First time I'd seen Paul's artwork he was painting a mural on the side of a building in Leigh-on-sea Other public examples soon followed on a fleet of coaches run by a local company. Several years later we got talking one day & visited the studio. Inspiring!
