Michael & Graham Turner Exhibition, nr. Wendover, Aylesbury

Are there any others TNFers planning to go along?
Here's a link: http://www.studio88.co.uk/ that also provides a map along with the opening times.
I had hoped to be there on the Friday, but work commitments look like preventing that now.
Any takers for the Saturday or Sunday?
The venue itself - rarely open to the public - looks worth a visit in itself and those of us who've seen both Michael's and Graham's work close up will know it's worth a look in.

Love Michael's work - my inspiration when I started out.
Give him my regards please Mark would you?

And just to bring this back to the top really - any TNFers likely to be in attendance?

Apologies for bringing this to the top again, but am I the only TNFer going along ???
Might pop along on Saturday as I'll be in the approximate area, but it all depends on 'er indoors, as it's her choice of what we do that day. The things I have to do in the cause of marital harmony...........probably end up traipsing round shoe shops all day.

(Good opportunity to get the odd magazine supplement autographed).

The star work was, undoubtedly, Michael's painting of the 1955 Mille Miglia, featured in the Motor Sport supplement, which sold at the opening for £3.250, a price which didn't seem unreasonable for the detail included, and skill in evoking the scene on the Raticosa Pass. Hope any other TNFers who attended enjoyed it.

Michael and Graham Turner's bi-annual exhibition is scheduled for 30th April-2nd May at their now-regular venue, Halton House, near Wendover, Bucks. Sadly, it clashes with Monaco Historics.
I didn't know the Turners did this. I'll certainly go and have a look.
I wish I could have done it 25 years ago when I needed inspiration!

The Exhibition is an interesting mix of Motorsport and Aircraft, a celebration of 60 years of the F1 World Championship and 70 years since the Battle of Britain. Graham Turner is also big in the Jousting world and displays many of his Medieval pictures.
Webber brought his own Turner painting of his first GP win at the Nurburgring and gave an insight to how the scene and content was decided - on the back of a fag packet ! As Mark is only the 3rd Australian GP winner, views of Jack Brabham and Alan Jones were added along with National Emblem of Australia.
Seeing Michael's work back in the late 60's gave me the inspiration to try it myself. I thought I may enjoy it, but the show exceeded all expectations. Altogether an excellent evening and well worth the drive from Cheshire and back.
The Exhibition is Free and open until Sunday 2nd May. More details Here
PS. Hat's off to Mark Webber, who having been at the opening of the revised Silverstone earlier in the day, arrived early and stayed to the end, happily chatting to anyone. I suppose it helps that he only lived a few miles away in Aston Clinton.

If anyone's in the area, I thoroughly recommend popping along.

Each piece was fascinating to look at, and I kinda wished I had a few grand burning in my back pocket to have come away with a few original pieces!
I was hoping for a lottery win this weekend - no such luck

This year is the 50th anniversary of the founding of Studio88 by Michael and Helen Turner, and Michael and son Graham are holding another of their eagerly anticipated (in this household, at least!) exhibitions next week at their regular venue of Halton House, near Aylesbury, Bucks.
Admission is free and opening dates and times are Friday 4th - Sunday 6th from 10am to 6pm It will be well worth a visit if any of you are in the vicinity as it is three years since the last exhibition as they have been building towards this special anniversary.
