CURRENTLY EXHIBITING



Diana Smith

Gallery 1

Diana Smith has lived in Burnham on Sea for 50 years and like many people may have came late to painting , always wishing she had started sooner.

She is self-taught mainly because she likes to be alone when she paints. The same feeling persists when she arranges flowers or writes poetry.

Colour has always intrigued Diana - the way it can excite or depress our emotions. She loves the colours found in the ocean and just wishes we didn't have chocolate seas.

Janine Wharmby

Gallery 2

 

Tue 21st Nov- Sat 2nd Dec

 

‘Litterally Art’ is an exhibition created by Janine Wharmby, asking the viewer to consider our impact on the environment.

All materials have been reused, given to or found by the artist.

‘I have sacks of aluminium cans,’ Janine explains. ‘All were picked up along my walks. I take them home, sterilise them and use them to make something attractive.’

Many people despair of our throwaway culture. With her artwork, Janine aims to focus attention on the importance of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
