The Exhibition, starting tomorrow will run for one week until Friday 20th December. With a special appearance from the artist Stevenson between 1pm and 4pm.
A healthy serving of wine and cheese will be on offer (how could you resist?)

We all find inspiration in different places, people and objects and in honour of the exhibition, we thought it would be worthwhile saying a little about the great man who inspired Stevenson and has been a driving force behind his incredible artwork; J. M. W. Turner.

Perhaps best know for his work ‘The Fighting Temeraire’ he had a career that spanned half a century and is regarded by many to be one of the finest British artists to have lived.

Focusing mainly on the destructive forces of man and nature Turner is able to capture beautifully the changing nature of British life. Depicting contrasting scenes of the new industrial landscape against Britain’s past of sail boats and expansive green fields. Reflecting and adding to the efforts of other British Romantics working at the same time such as Wordsworth and Byron.

Like Turner, Stevenson has become entranced by the beauty of the open sea, primarily using coastal scenes in his work often using destructive imagery championed by Turner. A brilliant example of this in action is Stevenson’s ‘Storm’ as featured below.

To see ‘Storm’ and other amazing works, be sure to come along tomorrow or in the week and check out the full exhibit. For more information contact George or Daniel at The Gallery, or find us online.
