This exhibition features the work of 3 artists new to Malvern Theatres.
Sally Lancaster produces startling images of horses. She is a Full Member of the Society of Equestrian Artists (SEA).
She has won numerous awards for her fine, highly detailed oil paintings including the prestigious ‘Ex Arte Equinus II’ Director’s Award in 2008 and Editor’s 1st Runners Up Award in 2010. She regularly exhibits in London as well as various galleries around the UK.
Characterised by fine brush strokes on subtle backgrounds, Sally’s focus is always on the beauty of the horse itself, often observed from an unusual angle. She is fascinated by detail, capturing every expression, movement and subtlety of the subject.
In 2011 she was commissioned by Racing Post to paint one of the 10 horse sculptures on display around Cheltenham town centre for the Cheltenham Horse Parade.
In 2012 she was commissioned by Princess Ameera Al-Taweel to produce a painting for Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to commemorate him winning the FEI World Endurance Championships.
Her work is breathtaking.
Jessica Abbott is making a name for herself as a successful artist producing sensibly priced original paintings. She offers artwork created to reflect the fact that every home is special and unique. She produces work which reflects this difference.
Having mastered the technical aspects of drawing and painting in a traditional style, she has gone on to explore and develop expertise in contemporary art.
She discovered a gap in the market for bespoke and individual paintings at affordable prices; her aim is to satisfy this need. She creates art that reflects the environment in which it is hung
She has taken part in many group exhibitions across the country and she takes commissions for both domestic and commercial settings.
Her work is as restful as the subjects from nature she portrays.
The third artist, Linda Tennant's artistic journey began when she joined a small informal art class.
Upon discovering that people enjoyed her work, she began to sell and exhibit in her local area and has gone on to open her own studio and gallery in the West Midlands in 2003.
She paints in watercolour, acrylic and oils. The wide range of subject matter she takes inspiration from, include landscape, animals, flowers and architecture. Although she also produces abstract pieces, the work in this exhibition has it's roots in the natural world.
Her work is held in private collections across Europe, America, Canada and Australia.
Whatever part of nature you enjoy, there is something in this exhibition to delight.
The exhibition is open every day until November 17th.
