Local artist achieves double success at Poole
DESPITE hundreds of entries and a rigorous selection procedure, Martyn Gleaden of Winterborne Whitechurch is celebrating after both of his entries to the “Peacock Open 2013” were selected to be shown at the Poole and East Dorset Art Society exhibition at Upton Country Park, Poole. Not only were they selected but one of his images sold on the very first day the exhibition opened.
Martyn took to art only last year as a way to overcome problems with his bipolar illness, which sometime left him unable to communicate or express his feelings. He found art and photography allowed him to share some of his frustration at his condition and to show people the difference between his manic, and depressive states.
The exhibition, titled “Poole – Places and Spaces” is running at The Gallery Upstairs, Upton Park until Monday 23rd September.
