Indian Summer: from Kashmir to Kerala.
2 APRIL – 14 JULY 2019 at the Russel Coates Museum and Art Gallery, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH1 3AA.
This fascinating exhibition of paintings and drawings by Dorset artists Felicity House & Billa Edwards is the spillage from numerous trips to journey within the sub-continent of India and paint on location.
There is no doubt India is a feast for the eyes. The exhibition provides glimpses of its incredible architecture, splendid palaces, sacred temples and formal monuments – contrasting wide landscapes and rural village scenes, informal courtyards and lush gardens.
Indian life observed and recorded with a keen eye and lively hand : incidental events noticed and always the intensity of colour and pattern and warmth that is India. A visual slice of an inspirational place.
On two dates to be arranged, both Billa and I will be present in the exhibition to talk informally with those interested and to share our many sketchbooks.
Please email if you would like an invitation to the Private View.
