September Exhibition - “Memories of a Devon Summer”
We've had such an incredible summer that we just don't want to let go! So before the falling leaves of autumn arrive and the sun disappears over the horizon we have pulled together a final reminder of those warm balmy days in our September exhibition “Memories of a Devon summer”.
This collection presents picture perfect beach scenes of Devon including the South Hams beaches of Bigbury and Salcombe, evoking memories of long lazy days spent building sandcastles, crabbing in the rockpools, and picnicking in the sand dunes with yachts racing in the sound, and searingly hot images of the sea.
Michael Hill produces the most beautiful paintings of the coast and creeks of the South Hams. His soft and gentle technique is ideal for depicting hazy summer days and his “Pink Sail, Burgh Island” presents the perfect image of a Devon summer.
“Millbay” and “Millbay, towards Snapes Point” by Jennifer Wright also immerse the viewer in the best of sunny memories with children playing on the beach while grown-ups shelter under windbreaks and parasols, and yachts skip merrily over deep blue waters. Hard to believe these are images of Devon and not the Mediterranean!
“Memories of a Devon summer” runs until the end of September.
