Exhibition of Paintings and Photos of Nicaraguan Life

And an exhibition of 25 years of friendship with Ocotal was held on the 9th of October at Artsite.
The idea of the SOL, Swindon Ocotal Link, social evening was to enable people to meet  painter Patricio Marin on his first visit from Ocotal, and to meet SOL members and find out more about the organisation and it's work over the last 25 years.
Patricio had 2 paintings in the Window Gallery as his contribution to joining SOS this year. He arrived in Swindon too late to take part more fully.
Here's his fine, detailed work in the Artsite Gallery:

And here's Patricio at the back facing the camera:
And here's Bruce Clarke's wife in traditional dress beside Nicaraguan artefacts:
And two other pictures, this one was particularly interesting, it's composed of different colours of sand glued onto a cement bag:

And this:
I don't know anything about the artists, but liked them.
