About this Event

Artists: Marilyn Jacobs, Margi Nolan and Helen Taylor

The artists in this exhibition were originally brought together by Arthur Phillips, a well-known watercolour artist and tutor. Margi Nolan, Marilyn Jacobs and Helen Taylor are now all experienced artists solely dedicated to the watercolour medium.

In the hope of raising awareness within the community of the wonders of watercolour, they have created a diversity of works for this exhibition. Their aim to share with the viewer the beauty of both the natural world and the human constructs within it, all translated and interpreted within the unpredictable realm of this medium. To view the paintings on the walls of this exhibition, is to think of how water behaves and reacts to pigment, how it flows, repels, absorbs, dissipates and diffuses only one single element - and that is, colour. Out of that seemingly simple relationship between pigment and water, there emerges shapes, lines, tones, illusions as well as stylistic diversity, all of which form engaging compositions that perhaps share a moment, tell a story or intrigue the viewer in some way as to how the works were artistically constructed.

As the title "Watermarks" suggests, this is an exhibition about water and pigment, a difficult and challenging marriage fostered by the dedication of these three artists to simply make it work and to give the viewer insight into the unique versatility of this elusive medium.

Tickets must be presented on entry to comply with social distancing requirements.
