Third time lucky! This exhibition is finally open for the public to view after a cancellation and a virtual opening in June.  You will be able to view the vibrant work of two local artists inside the gallery space of Colonnade House from 18 -23 August, 10.00 – 17.00 daily.

Bold, Bright, Intuitive and Engaging – this exhibition sees two acclaimed artists, Alison Tyldesley & Diane Bailey, bringing together complementary views of the natural world. The show promises an exciting chance to see the work of two newcomers to West Sussex who have recently relocated from Yorkshire and Dartmoor respectively bringing strong reputations with them.

Love of the natural world is their driving force and both use acrylic on canvas or board and paint energetically with brushes, knives, rollers and cloths. Part of the process includes scraping, indenting and removing layers as well as applying thick emulsions and allowing fluid, transparent glazes to flow over the surface of the work.

Several pieces are worked on at once as the artists respond to the emerging images and the physical process of painting itself.

Working from studios at Colonnade House both Alison and Diane will be available throughout the show to talk about their individual work and influences and answer questions regarding workshops, tutorials and commissions. This is the first chance to see a substantial number of their works gathered together in Worthing and they look forward to welcoming and sharing their enthusiasm with visitors.
