It is a family affair for the latest exhibition of artwork at Sleaford’s Carre Gallery.

Entitled The Four G’s, it features almost 100 years of art in a variety of mediums by four generations of the family of Ian Cox, from Leasingham.

The tradition goes back to Eric Cox, his uncle, who died in 1969, and was a semi-professional artist, mainly painting landscapes. Some of Ian’s work is on display along with Ian’s son, Stuart, who trained at Lincoln Art College and Cambridge and is currently doing a Master’s degree in fine art. Examples of work by his two grandsons Thurston and Hugo is also exhibited.

The exhibition is running daily until December 5, 10am to 4pm.

Work includes sketches by Ian that he has taken as part of a group illustrating the Easton Walled gardens, near Grantham.

Ian is pictured with one of his pieces, The Flodden Tree, (he used to be a forester by trade).
