Landscape exhibition reveals the beauty of Shropshire

A collection of oil paintings depicting the Shropshire countryside and the River Severn will be exhibited at a Midlands Gallery.

The David Fowles selling exhibition will be displayed at the Granary Art Gallery, Weston Park, on the Staffordshire Shropshire border throughout October.

The Shropshire artist uses loose brushwork to replicate the sense of movement and is drawn to the transient and changing light of nature. This is captured by all landscape work being completed outdoors harnessing these elements before the actual motifs, rather from photographs.

David has been influenced by artists who also felt the direct experience of nature was essential to their art such as Corot, the Impressionists and Constable.

David said: “Recapturing the views and atmosphere of the countryside is my inspiration. I paint what I see, as I believe that the beauty of nature is enough and does not need to be embellished.”

Curator to the Weston Park Foundation, Gareth Williams, added: “David’s collection will feature scenes from East Anglia as well as the Shropshire landscapes, translating the familiar county scenes with spectacular light effects into images of great originality.”

Entry to all of the Granary Art Gallery’s exhibitions are free. The stately homes gallery is located in a spacious restored Granary building and features a changing programme of traditional, contemporary and historical decorative and fine art displays.

The David Fowles selling exhibition at Weston Park’s Granary Art Gallery will run throughout October from 11am – 4pm. For further information please visit:
