Determined to promote the best contemporary artists around, Artwave West in Morcombelake opened their first formal exhibition of the year on 6 March with an ambitious and sensational collection of new painting.

The Spring Exhibition will showcase the work of nine artists all at different points of their careers creating a diverse display for visitors. Included will be the latest cityscapes by the very prominent Suchi Chidambaram, an artist that has been represented by Artwave West for five years now and is rapidly becoming a highly sort after international artist. Her latest paintings of London and Paris captured with rapid palette knife marks will captivate viewers.

Alongside is another Gallery favourite, Amy Albright who recently shot to fame after being commissioned to produce several new paintings by P&O Ferries for their latest cruise ship, Britannia, boasting the largest floating art collection in the world. Her subtle oil paintings allude to the interconnecting natural forms and patterns that surround us and are always a sell out when they arrive in the gallery.

As a Buddhist, Val Hudson’s contemplative, meditative and mysterious paintings using oil and wax with titles such as ‘Love after Love’ and ‘Enigma Variation’ will intrigue as the viewer is drawn ever closer in a questioning of reality. In contrast the hard won images by Heather Duncan exploring the bleak moorlands and crags of the rugged Northern landscape demonstrate the passion of being at one with the outdoors.

There will also be a chance to see some fresh new talent, Robert Hewer and Leanne Stephens, both only recently graduating from Art School and producing strong, bold work that would make a statement on any wall. Finally, for those that prefer a slightly more figurative picture, Donna Goold and Bee Bartlett will display smaller pieces based on the Dorset coastline and recent travels to Greece.

This exhibition, not to be missed will run until the 18 April, open Wednesday to Saturday 10-4 or by appointment on 01297 489746.
