NEW SHOW COMING SOON!
The Whittox Gallery at RISE is proud to announce their next exhibition LAND OF THE SUMMER PEOPLE - a solo show by fine artist JENNY GRAHAM celebrating the Somerset landscape.
“I work towards an image which goes beyond the obvious and into the realm of memory and transformation. The oil and cold wax process allows for constant development of the picture surface which is both challenging and exciting. I want the viewer to experience my work as I experience the landscape, constantly changing with the effects of light and wind, not static but in flux. The paint itself hovers between the abstract and the figurative, first becoming one and then the other.”
PV - Thursday 30th June from 6.30pm until 9pm - All Welcome
Show opens on July 1st and will continue until September 4th.
