Artist comes back to Grantham to exhibit new work in her second one-woman show
Lincolnshire artist Sarah Watson is putting on her second one-woman show in Grantham, called From Dark to Light.
The exhibition of her work is now on show in the Newton Room in the Guildhall Arts Centre and can be seen until October 24.
It’s been four years since Sarah's debut in her home town, and a lot has happened since then. She has been exhibiting at the prestigious Fletcher Gate Art Gallery in Nottingham and the newer Gallery6 in Newark.
She has featured on the Sky Arts Landscape Artist Of The Year, and has been accepted for membership of the exclusive Lincolnshire Artists’ Society which used one of her paintings as the poster for this year’s Art In The Barn group show at Doddington Hall.
Her Grantham exhibition primarily features new, emotionally charged oil paintings, as well some small, jewel-like watercolours, dramatic charcoal drawings and ink paintings. Her uniquely expressive semi-abstract landscapes will feature their signature vibrant colours, especially in her Lincolnshire paintings. However, a turn in life events has informed an even more dramatic and deeply personal approach to her mark marking and palette. Recent trips to the rain-swept Yorkshire Dales and Peak District, in particular, have brought about a more brooding and atmospheric touch to her painting.
The exhibition takes place in the Newton Room at the Guildhall Arts Centre and entry is free. The Guildhall Arts Centre is open daily from 9.30am to 4.30pm and during evening showtimes. Visitors are advised to call in advance to ensure the exhibition room is open to the public. Call 01476 406158.
