Weather Eye Exhibition Opened last week

There's a new exhibition in the newly created small gallery where the Craigie Aitchison exhibition was held. It's a small exhibition of varied works, all depicting the natural world. The walls give you an idea of the tones:

This one has seascapes
 Fabulous blues below:
And a lovely blue wall to complement the paintings above
The information panel explains it all, apologies for missing out the Bomberg.
Here are a few which I thought I'd reproduce here:
 Above is 'Ebb Tide on the Reef at Clodgy' by Borlase Smart in 1943. This painting was at one time lent to Noel Riley at the Beehive for a discussion group to talk about it.
 'Sussex Landscape' by Claude Muncaster 1947
 'Landscape' by Denis Wirth-Miller 1956
 'Burning the leaves' Mary Potter 1955
'Welsh Hills' by CRW Nevison undated and the subject of a free lunchtime talk by Sophie Cummings on 11 March 12.30-1pm, along with Wallis' boat painting.
 There's also a general talk by Sophie on the exhibition on Friday 12 February 12.30-1pm. It's free to everyone, so do come along.
 'Cricklade Landscape' by Edward Butler


  1. Weather Eye Exhibition!! That sounds great and very interesting. I would definitely visit the gallery to attend this Weather Eye Exhibition. My friend has attended such an event at LA convention center and told me that it was creative so I am eager to attend this local event!!

  2. There's a talk this Friday 12th February at 12.30pm on the exhibition which you may be interested in attending.
