We are delighted to announce that we will soon be benefitting from an exhibition of paintings inspired by Shakespearian plays from stage and screen actor Jonathan Hyde.
From February 7th – 19th Jonathan’s paintings will be on display in the Oxmarket Centre of Arts, Chichester to view and buy, with proceeds being donated to our projects.
Jonathan Hyde has performed and starred in numerous theatre, television and film productions. Credits include 2011’s Rattigan’s Nijinsky at Chichester Festival Theatre, King Lear, Macbeth, Spooks, The Queen, Titanic and Jumangi to name but a few. He is soon to be seen performing in the UK tour of The King’s Speech.
Jonathan is also a very talented artist and while at Chichester in 2011 was inspired to take brush to canvas and create a series of narrative pieces based on Shakespeare, principally King Lear. Jonathan skillfully captures the inner mood and emotional atmosphere of the characters he paints.
This is an exciting opportunity to be able to view and buy this original artwork and to help raise awareness and funds for Children on the Edge.
Jonathan's work can also be seen on Saturday 4th February The Minerva Theatre in Chichester alongside two performances of The Virginia Monologues, also in aid of Children on the Edge.
