Through to the 24th April our exhibition Peter Wylie 'Sound of the Sea' is on show at the gallery.  There are paintings, drawings and etchings included. His monumental figure paintings are surrounded by the smell of sea air and his characters are shown standing, sitting and lying with wistful, almost melancholic expressions. His other collection of 'North Sea Studies'  paintings consider various journeys by the artist from one coastal town to another.

We have recently purchased a complete set of High Street by Eric Ravilious and will be showing them in June. The set comprises of twenty-four original lithographs by the artist. The lithographs are very rare as only a few sets were published in 1938 and the lithographic plates on which the images were drawn by the artist were destroyed in the Blitz.  In 2008 the Mainstone Press published a history of the project, The Story of High Street, and several of the lithographs from the series were exhibited at the Imperial War Museum for their Imagined Realities show.

Three beautiful lithographs by Edwin La Dell of Cambridge and Oxford scenes. La Dell's use of lithography to convey depth and richness of colour is is exceptional. He ran the Department of Lithography at the Royal College of Art from 1948 to 1970 inspiring generations of art students , but today his work is less well known.
