“Landmarks” is a new group exhibition by Green Door featuring new works from members; some based on local landmarks while others are more abstract representations with a personal resonance for the artists. The exhibition includes paintings, papercuts, prints, sculptures, textiles and wood.
“I live in Cumbria and barns such as this one are scattered everywhere,” said printmaker Kath Lockhart of her linocut ‘The Red Barn’. “What interested me the most in all these barns were the doors. All were quite different to each other and many in different colours.”
“Estuary Trails is from a series of three works that drew on the Estuary landscape at Bardsea, Ulverston, where I walked, observed, listened and sketched,” said Ann Marie Foster. “The endangered butterflies expose the fragility of our relationship with the natural world.”
Exhibiting artists include Roger Bell, Helen Bennett, Ellie Chaney, Sue David, Ann Marie Foster, Eileen Gledhill, Mike Healey, Cheryl Hitchcock, Judith Horsley, Brenda Hunter, Marion Kuit, Kath Lockhart, Jane Mallinson, Elizabeth Shorrock, Pat Smith, Elizabeth Tracey, Sonja Vietoris and Simon Whalley.
