Margie Johnson

Margie Johnson has been a constant exhibitor at Beckstones Art Gallery for over ten years. Born in London in 1949, Margie Johnson grew up in Basutoland (Lesotho) in an artistic environment (both her father and sister were artists). After school in Bloemfontein, South Africa, where she concentrated on art, she went on to study Graphic Artist Design in Cape Town 1966-1970, followed by working as a Graphic Designer. Having previously taught ceramics, Margie Johnson now holds classes teaching art to experienced artists in Cape Town where she has her own studios, and also runs workshops and lectures to the South African Society of Artists and the Western Cape Watercolour Society. She has exhibited extensively in South Africa as well as in New York. Margie Johnson’s main media are watercolour and oils, and she has an unswerving belief in the need for basic drawing and painting skills. Her usual subject matter includes still life (mainly watercolour) and landscapes (oils).

Roadworks

If approaching the gallery from Penrith or the M6 heading East on the A66 there is a major diversion in place to the gallery via Motherby. Instead of this we would recommend taking the first turning right to Newbiggin shortly after the Rheged roundabout, follow the road through the village and then turn left as you come out of the village. Follow the road up the hill past the recycling centre and turn right at the bend where you will see our brown tourist board sign, follow the lane and signs to the gallery. Altenatively take B5288 from Penrith to Greystoke turning left left to the gallery less than a quarter of a mile out of Greystoke.

Otherwise please follow the diversion signs on the A66 - they will successfully get you here but it will take 10 minutes longer.
