This Week at Salcombe Art Club: Elen Claire Williams
As a full member of Salcombe Art Club, I have the option to exhibit in the This Week corner of the Loft Gallery that some of us still call the Little Studio. This year, I had two consecutive weeks: 28 July until 11 August.
The turn of Elen Claire Williams
It’s now the turn of Elen Claire Williams to exhibit her work in the Little Studio.
Fine Artist, Elen Claire Williams MA works in the genre of the British Walking Artists: recording and interpreting her local South Devon landscape, principally between the moor and the sea. She commonly selects popular places at those solitary times where distance from modern life encourages deeper thought, imagination, self-discovery and inner peace.
Through varying visual languages, Elen Claire creates atmospheric, evocative impressions and visual documentations arising from ‘The Art of Slow Walking’. Often the narrative behind the artwork becomes a series of works exploring the deeper aspects of art making. This reaches beyond the decorative aspect of making art, to the key issues of our times e.g. spiritual poverty and environmental issues, becoming essential deeper elements in the artist’s work. Elen Claire seeks to raise the audiences’ awareness of the fragility of all life. An interest in local history, rural traditions and personal faith are reflected in the narrative of specific series of artwork.
Here are just three of Elen Claire’s paintings. Visit the Little Studio in the Salcombe Art Club to see more. Elen Claire’s show ends on Saturday!
WHERE IS THE LOFT GALLERY?
The Loft Gallery is situated behind the Fortescue Inn, and above a popular shoe shop, on a delightful footpath called Victoria Quay, which overlooks one of the best views in the UK including the mooring berth of the RNLI lifeboat Baltic Exchange III.
