“Father Christmas Creations by Roy Brindamour” Exhibit
November 6 - November 26
Roy Brindamour will unveil the art work he has created for the Rotary Club of Marblehead Harbor’s Holiday Pops on the Move! There will be a concert and a reception in his honor on Wednesday, November 6th, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Abbot Public Library, 235 Pleasant Street, Marblehead.
The reception is free and open to the public. Guests are invited to gather in the Library’s Virginia A. Carten Gallery for an exhibit of Brindamour’s artwork. The unveiling of his 2019 Holiday Pops figure of Father Christmas will take place at the reception. Brindamour is an accomplished artist, and has made winter Holiday and Father Christmas figures for many years. Each is made entirely by the artist, as he molds the faces and hands, constructs the figure and accessories, and sews each costume. The exhibit is titled “Father Christmas Creations by Roy Brindamour” and and will be on view through Tuesday, November 26th.
Roy Brindamour is an accomplished craftsperson. His interest is in nineteenth century dolls and costumes, and his knowledge and expertise are extensive. He works slowly and methodically, and each meticulous creation is truly a unique and collectible work of art. He also makes custom figures to order for a wide range of clients. His business “Marblehead Made” is a collection of his paintings, papier-mâché dolls, Christmas items, and other artistic works with ties to earlier times. Inspired by antiques, these original works are carefully researched to give the look and feel of an antique by using the same techniques and materials as the original. This gives his work a special timeless quality. Roy’s work has been at the Seraph in Sturbridge, MA, The Peabody Essex Museum gift shop, The Wenham Museum gift shop, and shops in Marblehead, MA.
The Holiday Pops On the Move! artwork will be raffled at the Pops on the Move! Evening at the Hooper Mansion on Saturday, December 14th. Raffle tickets will be available at the Reception at the Library, at the Arnould Gallery, from Rotary of Marblehead Harbor Club members, and on the Pops concert evenings.
