Sarah Wiseman Gallery announces this year’s festive exhibition, “Winter Lights”, launching 16th November. Visitors can expect wintry landscapes and atmospheric skies, which has inspired new collections of work by some of the gallery’s leading lights. As always, the gallery has sourced the best artists and makers for a show that offers inspirational gift-giving that will stand the test of time.
“It’s a seasonal exhibition with an emphasis on the romance of the winter countryside. There is so much beauty in a winter landscape, and of course, many people enjoy bracing family walks around this time of year! So we hope this exhibition will reflect this” says gallery director Sarah Wiseman.
For those in search of contemporary painting, there will be an array of striking works on show. These artists will include Dawn Stacey, who is new to the gallery. Her textile-inspired paintings are layered with various techniques to achieve a beautifully softly-lit atmosphere. In addition, Bristol-based painter Daniel Ablitt’ s atmospheric landscapes are influenced by travel experiences and childhood whose dreamlike qualities evoke the romance of wandering through the woods. The light brushwork of Daniel’s misty scenes seems to glow with diffused light, suggesting the magic of getting lost in nature. There will also be delicate contemporary watercolours by Kate Evans which depict remote farm-buildings, mountains and snow-scenes, and many other works to see by our gallery artists.MORE INFO >
