September showcase at Fisherton Mill
A SHOWCASE of art can be seen in the main gallery at Salisbury’s Fisherton Mill.
Five artists are showing their work in the gallery, with something to suit all tastes.
Sandra Hammer has recently moved to Wiltshire and works from the chalk uplands and wide skies surrounding her new studio.
The landscape is dotted with Neolithic hill forts, long barrows and stone circles, providing rich subjects for her vibrant and expressive paintings, full of energy and movement.
Botanical painter Sally Pond, pictured, cites her love of detail and accuracy as essential ingredients of botanical painting and in this exhibition displays stunning seasonal studies.
Hilke MacIntyre takes inspiration from early 20th century art, ‘primitive’ art, contemporary design and nature. Her lively prints illustrate the life and landscape around her, transferred into colour, pattern and simplified bold shapes, set in an abstracted space.
Ian MacIntyre’s paintings and prints are primitive, cubistic and cartoonlike in style. His work is part of several public collections including the City Art Centre Edinburgh and Perth Museum and Art Gallery.
Linda Farquharson creates art of whimsical lyricism.
Hers is a distinctive graphic style of pared down compositions and delight in pattern making, contrasting the monochrome qualities of relief printmaking with the evocative possibilities of colour.
The September Showcase runs until September 29.
