Art ‘Awakening’ at The Gallery

DORSET artists Zee Jones and Pamela Allsop will be joined by Lucy de Albuquerque, from North Hampshire, in a showcase of their recent artwork, entitled ‘Awakening’, at the Symondsbury Estate Gallery, near Birdport.

All three artists love the exuberance of vibrant colours, only differing in the mediums they use. Zee and Pam work in mixed media and acrylic, while Lucy uses watercolours, printmaking and mixed media.

They each experienced a similar sense of ‘awakening’ during lockdown and used this time to slow down and embrace a new awareness of the natural world.

This exhibition reflects these artists’ journeys and demonstrates their desire to encompass the new through coming together, joining and sharing.

As three women who are coming out of a period of self-isolation, they would like to dedicate this exhibition to Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe whose own lockdown in Iran has been so long and unjust.

The exhibition is open Thursday to Monday from September 24 to October 12, 10.30am to 4.30pm, and admission is free, as is parking on the estate’s car park.
