Memories are made of this...

Sat 16th July - Fri 5th August '16

Childhood memories and all points imbetween are covered by 3 great bodies of work by 3 equally talented artists. Each with their own style and colourway.  From contemporary Impressionism to Fine art detail all approaches evoke the feel of summer on the skin and senses be it from yesterday or yesteryear...

Carolyn Pavey particularly focuses on the atmosphere and feel that different weather conditions bring at the beginning and end of the summer days. Feel the peace and solitude of an early morning walk on Priory Bay...see the soft rain and smell the misty water vapour in the air as the sun starts to appear and you know theres a 'Fine Day to Come'. Picture yourself on the shore in the evening or getting ready to race your Mermaid in the warm, brisk airs of the day...

Charlotte Hodge Thomas is multi talented when it comes to creativity (see Cv on her page on this website for details). When it comes to her decerning eye for detail plus the zinging blues of her skies and superreal reflections in water - be it sea, a rockpool or the reflective surface of wet sand she is second to none in her execution. Each piece draws you in to it. Mentally you walk into the scene and spend time there...only leaving once you've satisfied your need for magical solitude and spirit revitalising calm. The perfect moment caught just for you...

Ann Hawksley is an instinctive people watcher. A vibrant colour palette mixed with a talent for capturing light, shadow and movement in a brush stroke gives her Impressionist style a strong contemporary feel. Her work evokes emotion and connection to the perfect childhood/family memory be it yesterday or yesteryear - depending on your age and circumstance! You'll find yourself bewitched by the 'Hot Sand' piece of a young girl running to stop the sand scorching her toes, entranced by the light, reflections and childrens forms in Crabbing in Seaview I and II and the characterful children 'In the Shallows'.
