A talented ex-student from Fareham College, the UK’s college of the year, has successfully launched his first solo art exhibition at Winchester’s Fulflood Gallery.
Joshua Langley, who found a passion for art as a toddler, drafting complex sketches of people and places, studied art and design at Fareham College where he achieved great results.
Now a promising artist with his own website www.joshualangleyart.com, Joshua was looking for a place to showcase his work and chose Fulflood Gallery because of its track record in launching successful solo shows from budding artists.
Joshua showcased his ‘plein air’ paintings of Winchester at an exhibition on the 8th and 9th September at the gallery. The collection of 21 original oil paintings capture the beauty of the historic medieval city and Joshua’s talent for painting landscapes.
Nigel Duncan, Principal of Fareham College was one of the attendees at the exhibition and said:
“Josh is a very talented artist, painting portraits, landscapes and special commissions. I am delighted that Fareham College has played a part in helping him to follow his dream and launch his first solo art exhibition. Our art department provides an exceptional learning environment for students and Joshua’s achievements are testament to that. The exhibition was a great success. I am sure it will be the first of many.”
Speaking about finally seeing his collection on display, Joshua added:
“I’m delighted to have accomplished my goal and have my first solo exhibition, and excited about the prospects of being a gallery artist. Winchester offers some amazing landscapes opportunities that can only be fully experienced and captured by setting up and painting on the spot. Personally, this represents a massive step as a landscape painter.”
Joshua hopes to collaborate with the gallery again and continue to exhibit his art. His ultimate desire is to exhibit nationally and move towards showcasing his work in the capital.
