AN exhibition of contemporary landscape paintings by West Country artist Lynda White will go on display at the Town Mill’s Courtyard Gallery in Lyme Regis from May 24 to 30.
Lynda’s works, whether figurative or abstract, acrylic or mixed media, reference specific locations and familiar landmarks in Devon, Dorset and Cornwall and thus convey a compelling sense of place and season.
Born and brought up on a farm in rural North Devon and having lived in the Lyme Regis vicinity since 2000, Lynda has a deep affinity with the landscape of the South West.
As a student in the 1970s, she filled sketchbooks with drawings of the wooded valleys, narrow lanes and patchwork pastures of her homeland. Lynda continues to employ this immersive process of sketching, noting and photographing her location before ultimately working up a painting in the studio.
She has had work selected for prestigious London shows in the Mall and Westminster Galleries and produces a new body of work every two years for this solo exhibition.
Lynda also shares her passion for art with adult students, running a busy programme of classes and workshops. She is actively involved in the local art scene and is president of the Axminster Art Society.
Her exhibition ‘Knowing My Place’ will be open daily from 10am to 5pm, admission is free and more details can be found on www.townmillarts.co.uk
