Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex
Quartet is a group exhibition by Maggie Edwards, Penelope Oakley, Amanda Lawrence and Pippa Burley – four local artists exhibiting together for the first time in the village of Alfriston in the heart of the Sussex Downs, at The Coach House Gallery, from 18 July to 18 August 2014.
Maggie Edwards uses oils, acrylics, chalk and watercolour to capture the passionate nature of our local sea and landscapes. Penelope Oakley uses acrylics, charcoal and gold leaf, creating hauntingly transcendent images. Amanda Lawrence sculpts and then paints tiny, exquisitely observed birds, and Pippa Burley sculpts boldly sensitive and thought provoking sculptures of the human form.
The Coach House Gallery was originally an 18th Century stable, and is now an exciting and dynamic exhibition space.
A sneak preview of their work will also be showcased from 4th July until 18th August at Deans Place in Alfriston. This prestigious 14th Century manor house, rich in comfort and history, boasts substantial hospitality areas for large or small groups, an enticing restaurant, and beautiful grounds. The show will also be sponsored by Amber’s Florist, Seaford and Chestnuts Tea Rooms, Alfriston, who will be providing visual delights and tasty morsels at the Private View.
The exhibition, aptly named Quartet, will be running from Saturday 19th July to Sunday 18th August, 10am to 5.30 pm, with the Private View on Friday 18th July from 6 until 9pm.Artist websites: www.penelopeoakley.org www.maggie-raku.co.uk www.pippaburley.com
