Harrow through the Heart – Landscapes by Alexandra Veres

Loading Events

Alexandra Veres celebrates beauty through her art, which is informed by the culture, experience and knowledge she has accumulated over a lifetime; centuries-old Headstone Manor is the perfect backdrop for an exhibition of her plein-air local scenes, featuring as they so often do the historic architecture she is passionate about.

The plein-air practice which underpins this exhibition pierces her heart with a double beauty: first, the beauty of nature and second, the beautiful act of creation itself, whether in pencil or paint. History breathes in every building she chooses to depict, whether that of Henry VIII at Headstone Manor, or of WS Gilbert at the Grimsdyke Hotel. Through her draughtsman’s line and devotion to truth, she trusts these images of Harrow landmarks will resonate with all those who live in this remarkable borough and beyond.

 

About the artist:

Alexandra Veres is a self-taught artist with an academic background, being a linguist and graduate in English literature from Cambridge University. Although she has had a lifelong passion for the practice and study of art, it was a chance watercolour course in 2009 which really opened the floodgates, radically changing her life and transforming her into the fully-fledged artist she is today. Alexandra runs a local outdoor painting programme as well as life drawing classes. She belongs to different art societies, including one at the Mall Galleries. Alexandra has additional artist’s residencies in Harrow and Belgravia, and now she spends  most of her day sketching and painting.
