Surrey Artist Marguerite Howarth

A new display in Woking’s Story celebrates the work of local Woking and Surrey artist, Marguerite Howarth. A former president of WokingSociety of Arts and member of Guildford Art Society, Marguerite Howarth was a professional illustrator whose early work centred on the production of greetings cards and postcards.

An exhibition of Marguerite’s work was held in the Art Fund Prize Gallery from August to October 2013 and it is the intention to display four of her paintings here in the course of the next twelve months. The need to protect watercolours from ultra violet light means that each painting will be shown for just three months.

At the same time there is a display of digital images of all of Marguerite Howarth’s known works. If you would like a copy of these images a CD is available from Reception, priced at £5 each.
