A new free-to-view exhibition opens in our gallery space this week, as part of our Artisan project.

Between 20 February and 8 March, Artisan will be welcoming acclaimed local artists (and QPAC tutors) Amanda Curbishley and Brenda Hurley for a joint exhibition of landscape and waterscapes titled ‘Earth and Water’.

High key colour and elements of design and texture feature heavily in Brenda Hurley‘s work, which spans landscape, still life, figurative and portraiture. There is strength and a sense of drama through the use of colour. Brenda’s landscape paintings explore history and forgotten footsteps, the marks that are left under the soil. Shape, pattern, lost edges and hard edges are tools used throughout her work.

Amanda Curbishley works in acrylics and mixed media. Fascinated by the effects of light, by texture and natural forms, by shape and colour in nature, Amanda enjoys exploring the effects of weather and age on natural or manmade surfaces. She incorporates bright colours and textures into her paintings, which lean toward the semi abstract.

‘Earth & Water’ is on display and free-to-view from 20 February to 8 March. Fore more information, including opening times, click here. You can follow both Brenda and Amanda on Instagram.
