From Monet’s majestic breaking waves, da Vinci’s imagined coastline views and Turner’s abstract vortexes of wind and water, there are few sources of inspiration so enduring for artists as the sea. Showcasing that this month will be King Street gallery Byard Art, which welcomes back its annual Seascape Exhibition, featuring artworks in a variety of mediums including craftwork, jewellery, sculpture and paintings.
On display will be the fresh and atmospheric sea-inspired paintings of Wendy Mcbride, the vibrant, textural seascapes of Jessica Oliver, plus the dreamy coastal landscapes of Felicity Keefe. The exhibition will also debut new works by artists Mike Bernard, Kate Aggett, Beccy Marshall and Chris Macauley, each chosen for their interesting perspectives on the sea, coastlines and coastal human activities.
The exhibition runs from 7 September until 1 October.
