Sound of Sea : May 3rd - June 5th
The sea, majestic and humbling, has been inspiring artists from our island nation for centuries. In this exhibition, it is illustrated in its most diverse forms with a variety of media by seven very different artists. Alan Watson's charcoal drawings of waves crashing against stormy headlands are dramatic and powerful, while Ian Rawnsley's oil paintings evoke a sense of mystery in its vast scale. Malcolm Cheape will also be exhibiting his unique textured pieces, alongside Chris Forsey whose quaint fishing villages promise to wash away the day's troubles and inspire memories of peaceful times beside the sea.
