'EMBODIED LAND' - selling exhibition by Sally Cole

18th July - 30th August 2020

GALLERY 3

Sally writes "I am a landscape painter and printmaker.
In 2019 I was privileged to be granted a month’s creative residency close to a remote beach on the spectacular west coast of New Zealand....

Working on the ideas and feelings from this time I have produced paintings and prints both in the studio and working outside in Pembrokeshire where the coastline also resonates with sound.
This will be an ongoing project, which I intend to continue over time."

Rachel Arif - 'Seafarer' for the 'SEASCAPES' exhibition

15th August - 10th October 2020

Gallery 4

The dramatic scene shown here is one of our contemporary paintings for sale.

Rachel Arif is often inspired by the skies, coasts and landscapes of Suffolk. While semi-abstract in style, her paintings are in the English tradition of Turner and Constable. Her depictions of expansive skies in the grip of dramatic weather conditions are recurring themes.

This small gem of an oil painting features in the 'Seascapes' exhibition.
It will remind you of every deserted summer beach you have ever discovered - escapism at its best!

Clare is a landscape artist. She trained at Hastings, has a background in stained glass-making and now paints the changing light, tides, skies and weather in the Sussex landscapes around her.

Davida Smith - 'Evening Lake' for the 'SEASCAPES' exhibition

15th August - 10th October 2020

Gallery 4

This semi-abstract etching is in the cool, mature and understated tradition of this artist's work.

Davida studied print-making at Central St Martin's School of Art, London, taught by Norman Ackroyd RA.
Landscape is her primary interest. It becomes refined to essentials as in this perfectly balanced image.

Original signed prints are available at £168.00
