The forthcoming event in January 2017, In St Leonards-On-Sea marks the ten year anniversary since Jonny died January 2007, in Cambodia. This is a gathering to remember and celebrate Jon's life, his work as a painter and the inspiration that has become his legacy to many people through his paintings and of course quite simply for the person he was.
The event is to be held on Saturday 14th January at the Kino Teatr, St Leonards-on-Sea, a multi use gallery, theatre and restaurant venue. There will be a launch and showing of the JDWC website, a documented reference point of Jon's life and work. There will be a film of Jon whilst working at the old Claremont studio and other unseen footage as well as a few of the short films that Jon made.
Beyond all, this is great opportunity to view and discuss many of Jon's paintings shown on his website and those selected to be hung in the gallery. This is the focus of this event. Do come down, meet up with others, and share stories and thoughts etc. The excellent Kino restaurant and bar is available for bookings on the night and will be organising a special menu, so do check that out and book ahead.
