Two Artists: One New, One Seasoned
by Emma Forrester
Large public galleries are a great place to see a wide and varied selection of art from different eras and nations, but sometimes it can feel a bit impersonal. The Marle Gallery in Axminster, however, is owned an run by Nick & Catherine Broomfield, a couple who love contemporary art, and want to share their passion with the world. They hold six exhibitions a year, in a space reminiscent of a show home.
You feel like you are being guided by people who know and care about what is on display rather than someone who just works there. For it's up coming exhibition, A Two Man Show, The Marle Gallery is featuring artists, Angus Rutherford and Emma Forrester.
Rutherford is an up and coming local artist with a distinctive, whimsical style. He studied at the Harrow School of Art, and his paintings are often inspired by the landscapes he sees on long-distance walks.
Forrester began her career as a scenic artist in West End shows and for the Royal Opera. Her art portrays everyday objects such as vases and tea-cups. She creates textile-like textures with her paint by etching over objects.
The exhibit is free to view and will be on display between the 5th - 30th March. You can also request a private viewing; all you have to do is contact the gallery.
