Tony Hart – drawings, pastels and prints
We are excited to announce that we have extended the Tony Hart – drawings, pastels and prints exhibition to allow visitors to come and view the pieces of art in person from 18 May. Tony Hart will feature in the childhood memories of many of our visitors as he appeared regularly on television in the 60s, 70s and 80s. Take Hart, Vision On and Hartbeat are just a few of his programmes in which he inspired (together with Morph) generations of children to love art and try out techniques for themselves – creating pictures from just a few lines.
To help keep everyone safe, we have introduced a booking system, all visitors wishing to view the Tony Hart and Bucks Art Society Exhibitions will need to book a ticket. Entry is free, but we welcome any donations large or small.
