Exhibition of artwork by Nancy Farmer and Sophie Galliers
Ilminster Arts Centre 9th Aug – 3rd Sept 2022
It’s been while since I had any significant numbers of pictures on the wall of a gallery. Here, finally, are the details…
Original paintings and prints will be for sale, and you are welcome to just pop in and browse. There is a cafe in the gallery which does light lunch and lovely cake!
pictures by Sophie Galliers & Nancy Farmer
Two artists capture people’s passions in different ways. Sophie explores the intimate connections between individuals, and between herself and her subjects; Nancy’s drawings tell stories of people connecting with the outside world, with the activity that is their passion.
Both artists put a strong emphasis on the draughtsmanship with which they use to tell their stories. Sophie combines finely observed portraiture with textures, patterns and colours to create highly expressive work. Nancy’s observations are on the humour and camaraderie of outdoor swimmers determined to do what they love in both fair weather and foul.
This is an exhibition about what drives us in different ways, and about two artists driven to document it. There will be much colour and humour.
