What is paint and what is not!
An exciting, new, solo exhibition by well known Rutland artist Barbara Taylor-Harris comes to the Harbour Gallery, Bull Brigg Lane, Rutland Water, Whitwell, Rutland. She specialises in highly original sculpted canvases, heavily textured paintings, small desk weight soapstone sculptures and some textiles. The exhibition will be an eclectic mix of her very wide variety of media and styles
The exhibition opens on Wednesday 9th October – Monday 21st October inclusive. It is open daily 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Barbara will be at the gallery every day so do pop in to see her new work, see her working and have a chat.
Showcased in this exhibition are new pieces inspired by Windsurfing on Rutland Water. She is also accepting new commissions for 2014 and has photographic examples of past commissions showing the wide variety of work/styles and challenges she has undertaken.
Barbara’s art work reflects her fascination for textures and materials. Her paintings are usually highly textured and she has developed a technique called sculpted canvas which creates high relief. Inspiration for her paintings come from the world around her and can be figurative or abstract. She often incorporates a wide variety of natural and made materials into her paintings but it is often a challenge to identify what is paint and what is not! She also sculpts in a variety of materials such as soapstone, alabaster, stone and plaster. In textiles she creates unusual pictures, hangings and unique textile gardens. Ready to frame work and cards will also be available for sale.
