Gallery Artists

We exhibit original paintings by our group of award-winning artists.

Lewis Hazelwood-Horner
Lewis is a young artist who is really making a name for himself, having  recently won first prize in the prestigious Columbia Threadneedle Competition with his oil painting 'Salt in Tea'.
This is a major art prize that showcases contemporary figurative art,  The competition was launched by the Mall Galleries in 2008, and is open to any artist aged 18 or over, who is living and working in the UK or continental Europe. A first prize of twenty thousand pounds and a solo exhibition is awarded for the best new work of figurative and representational art.
Caroline Matthews
After retiring from a long career in teaching, Caroline is now devoting her time to being a full-time professional artist. She mainly paints in the acrylic medium, with some pen and ink work, and pastel. She has been associated with Hanging Around Gallery for many years and is a personal friend of the proprietor, Tim Dell. Her subject matter is mainly trees, but she tells us she may be branching out in the future. 
Anne Currie
Anne Currie is a multi-talented artist who as well as painting in oil, lectures internationally in technology, and is the author of a trilogy of science-fiction books. She also acted as artistic adviser and art tutor to the main character in the recent feature-film Maudi. She is a member of the British Society of Naive Artists, and her subject matter is sometimes futuristic, with reoccurring motifs of balloons, scarecrows, and sheep, among other things.

Anne McNeill-Pulati
Anne studied art at St Albans Art School Hertfordshire BA Hons 1984-88, and has been producing art for 40 years. She describes her colourful work as 'narrative with a spiritual basis'. She has exhibited in Australia, New York, Hong Kong, as well as the UK. She works from her studio at The Chocolate Factory Studios, London N22. Her inspirations are often influenced by story, usually from a metaphysical angle which has a basis in myths and legends, anciet mythology and/or spiritual belief. Happenings from the world arena frequently link up and inform her symbolism. Her paintings include a mix of abstraction with clearly defined figurative aspects, emphasising the light and dark. She utilizes the textures that paint can create, and works predominantly in oil on canvas, or ink and gouache on paper.
