The Landscape Show | 1 April – 8 May

The Landscape Show features a diverse selection of paintings and monotypes. Curated from Exploring The Landscape, Ashley Frost’s term course on the breadth of gesture and colour in landscapes through compositional drawings, monoprint works and mixed media colour studies. United by their passion for landscape art, the skilled ensemble featured in this exhibition gathered weekly to delve into various landscape styles and subjects.

Displayed works encompass a striking range of subjects, from urban and rural scenes to seascapes and untouched wilderness. Highlighting an array of techniques and mediums, such as printmaking monotypes, acrylic on canvas, and oil on canvas. Yet while the show has tremendous diversity, Ashley notes “the exhibition has a wonderful unifying aspect of colour in all the works, with each artist showing elements of their own style”.
