Save Event: Coast and Country

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Rownhams House and The Town & Country Gallery have brought together work by three painters who capture the appearance and the essence of our coast and landscape in their unique and contrasting styles.


Kate Richardson lives in Cowes, on the Isle of Wight, and takes her inspiration from her family’s love of sailing around the Solent and beyond. She uses paint and mixed media, with an emphasis on bright colours, to express the energy and movement of her surroundings.

Alison Orchard is based in Grayshott, on the Hampshire-Surrey border. She is a strong believer in painting direct from the landscape, and creates works in oil, acrylic and mixed media. Alison is often out painting the Surrey Hills and has regular painting trips to Cornwall, soaking up its dramatic coastlines, which provide a great source of inspiration.

Matt (‘MJ’) Forster lives in Northumberland, where he has his studio and gallery. His watercolour landscapes and seascapes are widely collected and his unique, so-called ‘Überpainting’ interpretations of trees, rivers, moors, mountains and even cottages and sheep have made his work highly distinctive and recognisable.
