Read about the group show I'm part of this November in Surrey. There's a meet the artist day on Saturday November 25th in The Lightbox Gallery- it would be great of you could join us!
The group of artists Sarah Cox, Anne Winstanley Wood, Claire Hankey, Debbie Tearle and Emma Tweedie met online, and formed the idea in 2022. Their aim was to create a body of work to show how their passion for nature and the British Landscape inspires their art. The exhibition will be ‘a celebration of how the landscape can be used to inspire artistic expression’.
Expect to see surges of colour, beautifully rich textures, storytelling pieces and atmospheric evocative work. The artists have responded to landscapes experienced and remembered, from Ireland, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Essex and of course, Surrey. ‘The Pull of The Land’ has been curated by the artists themselves remotely through zoom meetings and is set to be a must see for any art lovers. With an impressive 20 metres of wall space, this beautiful contemporary space provides the perfect backdrop for this nature-inspired show.
“Getting to know the other artists and the story behind their work has been fascinating. Each of us has our own unique approach which makes for a really rich and diverse exhibition. We have a beautiful collection of work from small postcard sized paintings to large statement pieces; we hope there will be something for everyone to enjoy,” says Claire Hankey.
“I've enjoyed this process as it's not only been a creative journey but also brilliant from a social aspect. We have all gotten to know each other well by working collaboratively. I've loved what each of us as individuals has brought to the table," says Emma Tweedie.
You can meet the artists on Saturday 25 November when they will be at the gallery to talk about their practice. They will be bringing affordable works on paper and prints which will be placed in a browser for the day.
