Going with the Flow

This is an exhibition about notions of flow: the mental state of total engagement; the movement of the sea and the sky; and the passage of time. It’s a brilliant theme that brings together a variety of work by the Saltgrass Artists – a group of six Sussex-based artists who recently graduated after years of... Continue Reading →

A Quest for Identity

During years of drooling over pictures in art books and magazines, I must have seen reproductions of his... Continue Reading →

From Elegance to Urban Decay

I managed to catch the final weekend of this year's Open Houses event.

I chose the Brunswick Town... Continue Reading →

Lots of artists have been invited to donate a piece of work for the auction, which is currently happening on ebay, and all the work is now on show at the Brighton Dome.... Continue Reading →

Love 4 Landscapes

The Studio Gallery at Worthing Museum was full of colourful paintings of landscapes and seascapes, subjects which, as a painter, I am always pleased to see. Most of the show was dedicated to the paintings of Tom Gillham, a local artist whose work ranged from highly-detailed realist views of parks to vivid images of hearts... Continue Reading →
