AN EXHIBITION IN PASTEL, CHARCOAL AND GRAPHITE

24TH FEBRUARY - 2ND APRIL 2024

‘Plumbago’ was a term used to describe intricate graphite drawings in the 17th and 18th century.

This exhibition reflects the title to bring together a varied selection of pastel paintings that provide us not only with an insight into the specific techniques used by pastel painters today, but also seeks to reignite an awareness of, and appreciation for, this versatile medium.  The exhibition will feature selected Members of the Pastel Society (PS) alongside leading pastelists from the UK.

This exhibition will also feature a retrospective collection of original linocuts by one of the UK’s most important wildlife artists Robert Gillmor MBE SWLA (1936 – 2022).

“The eyes of an animal have the power to speak a great language.”

AN EXHIBITION IN OIL AND ACRYLIC

Alla Prima

1ST JUNE - 9TH JULY

The Gallery’s annual oil exhibition featuring Members of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) and carefully selected artists using this popular and diverse medium.

‘Alla Prima’ is a technique ideal for painting evasive light as quickly as possible particularly to capture the play of light in landscape painting at a   specific time of day. Some famous artists who made use of this technique were Vincent van Gogh (1853 – 1890) and Claude Monet (1840—1926).

MAJOR SOLO EXHIBITION AND BOOK LAUNCH

Alison Friend

27th July - 8TH August

Alison Friend’s first ever UK solo exhibition hosted by The Gallery, Holt and situated in our sister gallery Adrian Hill Fine Art, adjacent to The Gallery.

A British realist with a modernist vision, Alison’s paintings are inspired by nature and her cheeky sense of humour.
