We are saddened to share the news of John Midgely’s untimely death 1st November 2020, he will be remembered fondly, a long time supporter of NNEP.
I was on the NNEP committee in the first decade of the century where I came to know fellow committee member, John Midgley. His warm modesty and his generous enthusiasm for other artists’ work, and a love for painting and it’s possibilities of bringing people together never flagged. He always enjoyed exploring the language of painting and loved the opportunities to show his own work and also other people’s.
I will miss his warm handshake and his keenness to know what one might be up to and excited to see how things were going.
He will be greatly missed by me and the many people who had the good fortune to know him.
Artist and former committee member of NNEP
