Open Studio & Summer Exhibition
Landscape artist Frances Knight will open her studio as part of the Arundel Gallery Trail during the last two weekends in August. Visitors can enjoy her summer exhibition of paintings from 19th to 22nd and 26th to 30th August.
Work on display will include a springtime woodland series created during the first lockdown when Frances was able to visit a local wood outside her apartment to paint en plein air. The paintings show the slow changing of the season during this month of working in the same location, with leaves beginning to open more and the undergrowth growing more thickly as the series progresses. Reflecting on the series, Frances says “I loved the effects of sunlight and shadows as they filtered through the trees”.
The studio will be open 12–5 pm daily on Thursday 19th to Sunday 22nd and Thursday 26th to Bank Holiday Monday 30th August: Top Floor Studio, The Victoria Institute, Tarrant Street, Arundel BN18 9DG. Appointments are welcome outside of these times, please call Frances on 07950 862246 to arrange a visit.
Frances likes to paint directly from nature exploring the effects of light, colour and structure and then work on larger paintings from these studies once back in the studio. Her paintings can also be seen at Nadia Waterfield in Andover, Hampshire, and The Little Art Gallery in West Wittering, West Sussex.
