AUTUMN LEAVES THAT FALLTwo fabulous exhibitions to see us through Autumn
We are so happy to welcome back one of our favourite young artists for another solo show. Julie Ellis has simply gone from strength to strength and the quality of her work continues to mature beautifully. This year she is combining her traditional atmospheric landscapes with a new collection of small abstract paintings, which she has been developing as part of her Masters Degree in Fine Art at Plymouth University. FORCE OF NATURE is a thoughtful, well-balanced show which ensures Julie's place as a serious artist and one to watch out for - and invest in - for the future.
The second exhibition in October is one we are super excited about. We are working with the family of post-war British artist Jean Jones to reclaim her legacy and her place in the history of art. A passionate Dartmoor painter Jean has captured the wild rugged landscape of the moorlands in her own very unique style. JEAN JONES - DARTMOOR'S FORGOTTEN PAINTER presents an intimate insight into the private world of this talented, yet troubled, artist.
FORCE OF NATUREExhibition of new work by Julie Ellis
Devon artist Julie Ellis continues to show her unique ability as a fine art landscape painter in her upcoming exhibtion FORCE OF NATURE. Her Turner-like scenes are full of atmosphere and sensitivity, the ethereal, ambiguous subjects giving pause for thought and reflection. Julie is a fine young artist and it gives us great pleasure to be part of her journey.
JEAN JONES - DARTMOOR'S FORGOTTEN PAINTEROnce proclaimed the new Van Gogh, the legacy of Jean Jones is being reclaimed 3 - 24 October 2020
Jean Jones (1927-2012) was an extraordinary painter. Born in London she moved with her family to Devon so that her father could recover from four years in the trenches during The Great War. So began a life-long fascination with the wild rugged landscapes of Dartmoor. Dogged by mental ill health all her life she never quite reached the dizzy heights hinted at by her critics and supporters alike. In 1980 she had a solo exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford where her paintings were snapped up by J R R Tolkein, William Golding and Iris Murdoch, who was a great fan. Now, some forty years later we are exhibiting her work once more to reclaim her legacy and her rightful place in the history of art.
