Retired art teacher chooses Brancaster for his summer exhibition
Retired art teacher, Tony Bellars, 71, staged an exhibition at the weekend reflecting his passion for boats, birds, fish and Norfolk.
He chose Brancaster village hall for his show because of lifelong connections with the village - and because he has a holiday caravan just a few yards away.
When the hall was refurbished, Tony offered some of his works to go on the walls in the bar area and he took more paintings and sculptures for last weekend’s exhibition.
The work on display included sculptures of birds, boats, a lighthouse and fish and a wooden relief of St Ives harbour.
Tony lived in Brancaster in the early 1960s and worked at a boatyard there before going to Norwich School of Art. He later became art teacher at Springwood High School.
He has exhibited his work all over the country including East Anglia.
“The Brancaster weekend was a great success and I will certainly be going there again,” he said.
