The Thaxted artist Clare Wilde, who painted her own version of Edvard Munch’s The Scream to stop the building of new homes in the town, has an exhibition of her other work opening in Dunmow on Saturday, September 12.

Called Stay, the solo show has 20 original pieces, many of which will be for sale. There will also be originals on display for the first time which have so far only been shown as prints.

Clare said: “My usual work is much softer in style than the commissioned “Screaming” piece. People who know that image are often surprised by what I normally do. I paint dreams, animals and life in Thaxted.”

The show is on the first floor of May & Brett, 23 High Street, Dunmow from September 12-26 10am to 4.30pm (closed Sundays and Mondays).
