Chippenham Museum have purchased 3 oils by British artist Doreen Heaton Potworowska for their permanent collection. Doreen studied at Corsham School of Art in the early 1950's where she met her husband to be, Polish artist Peter Potworowski.
The museum is in the process of establishing a collection of quality works by Corsham students and felt Doreen's work epitomises the high standard of the teaching at Corsham under the inspired leadership of Clifford & Rosemary Ellis.
The pair had a policy of employing the best modern artists to train under their students including Peter Lanyon, Kennith Amitage, Willian Scott, Adrian Heath, Gillian Ayres to name but a few.
We are excited to see Chippenham's collection grow.
