Wivenhoe has long been a haven for the artistic community, including painters Francis Bacon and James Dodds.
If you are staying at the hotel it is well worth a stroll down to the quayside to see what attracts them to the area and pop into the Sentinel Gallery to browse among some of the latest creations.
The brasserie is currently displaying ‘The Transfiguration Series’, a collection of works by Wivenhoe artist, Anthony Jones. Originally from North Wales, Anthony moved to the area six years ago. He works mainly in oils and usually presents his paintings as part of a collection, reflecting how he sees the world.
Inspiration for ‘The Transfiguration Series’ is drawn from photographs Anthony has taken in and around Wivenhoe. The subjects range from some of the weathered old fishing boats to familiar landmarks around the town. We hope there is something for everyone to enjoy.
