As a full member of Salcombe Art Club, I have the option for a one-man exhibition in the corner of the Loft Gallery that some of us still call the Little Studio.
This year, my exhibition spans two consecutive weeks: 18-31 August. Fifteen original paintings … and the gallery is open every day 11am until 5pm
A RETROSPECTIVE OF MY WORK
For this one-man exhibition, I’ve chosen paintings which span the past decade or so, while I have been a member of Salcombe Art Club.
The Club rules don’t allow a painting to be exhibited in the Main Exhibition for three years after it is first exhibited. Each year, I’ve been exhibiting 5 new paintings; consequently, these older ones have been somewhat neglected.
I need to free up space on the walls in my gallery! So, I have discounted all of the paintings on show for this fortnight. Come along. There are some bargains!
From 2011: Slapton Ley
From 2012: Fishing Boats in the Barbican
From 2013: At Ditch End
From 2014: Hope Cove Fishing Gear
From 2015: Sunlight Across the Bar
From 2018: Sunset at Start Point II
Sunset at Start Point: oil: £325
In the main exhibition, I have FIVE paintings. Can you find them all?
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.
AFFORDABLE ART: Fine art greetings cards
Out of 140+ completed paintings to date, 70 of these are also available as fine art greetings cards.
You cannot buy my cards at the Salcombe Art Club, but they are stocked at Bonningtons (the newsagents) and Salcombe Information Centre (both a short walk from the Loft Studio).
Further afield, my cards are stocked by Malborough Post Office, Ashby’s, The Gallery Project at Avon Mill and at Noss Mayo.
