Ted Coney's Family Portraits opens for ninth season at Waterside, Ely

Ely Standard
15th May 2017

Ted Coney's Family Portraits - Ely's first pop-up gallery - has opened for its ninth season. Situated on Waterside, it is also the home of artist, Ted Coney, and his wife, Hazel.

Ted's paintings are about family life and he has been making them for nearly 50 years. Although no work is for sale, visitors are taken on an hour-long guided tour.

The tour ends in Ted's studio, to see his latest work-in-progress. His current painting, 'Forget-Me- Nots', is about five elderly relations and the theme is dementia and memory loss.

For research, he travelled to the five East Yorkshire sea-side towns that he associated with the five sisters and collected objects to represent each person.

He placed the objects in five small suitcases, each labelled as if going on holiday.

Booking is essential; six people per tour.
