19 March to 17 April 2016
Rachael Mia Allen, Sue Lewington and Nicola Tilley
The magnificent coastline of the Westcountry and especially Cornwall has long been a source of great inspiration to artists. Turbulent and dynamic one moment, tranquil and reflective the next, the sea around Cornwall is a constant presence impossible to ignore. For those that live on the coastal edge it rhythms our lives and literally shapes the land we live upon.
Rachael Mia Allen, Sue Lewington and Nicola Tilley are three artists acknowledged for the powerful influence the sea has in their work. For this show they have combined to explore through their paintings the sea’s draw upon us and share its sheer beauty. The artists working in very different media and approaches, reflect upon the sea’s emotional power, embrace its varying moods and delight at the constant discoveries to be found exploring the coast. This exhibition combines the artists’ vision in a unique conversation that celebrates Coast and its enduring fascination.
