times: Tue-Fri 12-5pm; Sat & Sun 11am -4pm;
Light, Land & Place is an exhibition of atmospheric paintings by Oxfordshire-based artist Caroline Meynell. Meynell’s work is an exploration of the interplay between the light, land and space within landscapes which hold a personal significance to the artist. As a painter, Meynell has developed her style using bold and strong colour which reflect the form, contours and light of the land. She paints with thin layers of oil paints, which are built up gradually and slowly. This technique produces a richness of depth and translucency.
The private view of Light, Land & Place will take place on Friday 25th July, between 6-8pm. The exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday 26th July to Sunday 17th August.
