LEFT-HANDED ART. An exhibition of Bridget's paintings opens Tues 6 March 2018

Bridget Metcalfe, the Chelmsford based singer, singing teacher, radio broadcaster and music critic has recently taken on an unexpected new venture. Last year, she fractured her right-wrist and to avoid boredom while it healed, right-handed Bridget picked up her watercolours and began to paint with her left hand.

With building works well underway in phase two by Higgins Construction, the City Park West Genesis development on Victoria Road South captured Bridget’s attention. Having had access to one of the new apartments, she began to paint what she could see from the windows. The multi-storey buildings, the cranes, the scaffolding and the developing urban site were her inspiration. She describes herself as “a colourist” because her work is vibrant and vivid colours, not what you’d perhaps imagine on a building site.

The collection can be viewed at an exhibition, LEFT-HANDED ART, which opens on Tues 6th March at 7pm at the new Transition gallery, (close to Chelmsford’s train and bus stations).
