New art exhibition opens at Lyme Regis Museum

Pauline Sayers exhibitionA NEW exhibition of paintings and drawings by Lyme Bay Arts member Pauline Sayers opened at Lyme Regis Museum this week. 

The exhibition ‘Lyme Light – Where Sea Meets Sky’ will be open in the museum’s Rotunda Gallery until August 1.

This exhibition represents, in Pauline’s words, “my past year observing the ever-changing sea, sky and coast from different areas within Lyme Bay, looking out towards the dazzling light on the horizon in what has been an unprecedented time”.

She added: “2020 has been a year where many have found being out in nature to be an uplifting and positive force for renewal. My aim is for my paintings to convey some of the wonder and tranquillity of what we see when looking out towards the horizon.”

Pauline’s technique involves sketching and taking photographs outside, then painting in oils or drawing with acrylic pens on unbleached linen once inside, sometimes combining the two media.  

She graduated in Fine Art, History of Art, and Education from Homerton College, Cambridge, and then taught art in Greater London, Cumbria and Somerset before concentrating solely on her own work.

The Lyme Regis Museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 10am until 5pm. Admission fees apply.
