Buttercups at Ide by Joe Webster

Marks of Nature Exhibition

Our first Exhibition of the year brings together three very different artists from the south west, John Grice , Joe Webster and Ellie Verrecchia , who each have a true love of the natural world which they celebrate in their paintings. Their landscapes and seascapes of the local coastline and countryside are exceptional. John has produced some fantastic new work. Joe likes to mix things up with a bit of street art giving an edge to his paintings, and Ellie's gentle works on paper are breathtakingly beautiful.
