Work that uses the natural world as it’s starting point. Realistic depictions of life, or abstract expressions of the sights of our world and the feelings that it creates.
Monday, 8th June - Treasure
The special things that we hold dear to us. Golden memories or brilliant things newly discovered. Precious moments or precious objects.
Tuesday, 9th June – Neighbours
People, places, things. Together or apart, similar or different, literal or abstract. How things relate to and/or affect each other.
Wednesday, 10th June - From My Window
What do you see - or how do you feel about what you see? Subjective perspective!
Thursday, 11th June - Colour & Light
A selection of work focussing on the capturing/mastering of these seemingly simple, but deceptively difficult components. Bright and bold or soft and ethereal.

The intentioned execution of work where the overriding impression is of shape and form. Whimsical, over-blown, simple or small and perfectly formed.

Sunday, 14th June - Fantasy
Where does your mind go when it escapes from the routine, the everyday or the known world?
Monday, 15th June - Abstractions
