The Three Person Exhibition

Paintings for the next exhibition have arrived at the gallery!  It's going to be all change soon, which means saying goodbye to an exhibition I love, but it is also an exciting time.

After the current Carlo Rossi RSW RGI Memorial exhibition, we are exhibiting works by three fabulous artists - David Smith RSW, Sian MacQueen RSW and David Martin RSW RGI.


David Smith RSW

A three-person exhibition hopefully contrasts, compares and distinguishes each artist. But it will only be successful if each artist has a strong individual style and also the work succeeds in complementing the other artists. I have always found it difficult to define why work from different artists can complement.  But I know it when I see it!


Sian MacQueen RSW

I have admired these three artists for a long time.  Their individual styles are strong, yet there is a softness of tone and almost a whimsical take on their subject matter.  All are recipients of various awards in recognition of their outstanding works and I am already getting excited about hanging their paintings together.  


David Martin RSW RGI

I never really know how an exhibition is going to look and feel until it is all hung, but I have that feeling deep down that it is going to work well, full of contrasts, complements and distinction.  Just what we want from a three-person exhibition.

This exhibition opens on 12th August.

Thanks for reading!
