The Promise of Landscape Art
7 - 24 November 2018

Opening Wednesday 7 November 5.30-7.30pm.

The positive function of a landscape painting is that by looking at it we are, in effect, looking through the artist's eyes, entering into a concretised instance of the artist's gaze. We are looking at an interpretation of looking. We cannot help analysing and comparing.

Is it real, does it feel real? Does it confirm or expand our opinions about art and its ability to depict place? Is it a bridge between the real and the imagined that once crossed becomes actual? The artists in this show take an interpretive gaze; they make something real out of something imagined.

Works by Richard McWhannell, Tony Lane, John Madden, Peter James Smith, Richard Adams, Paul Jackson, Wes Fieldhouse and Kathy Barber.
