We are delighted to announce our new exhibition at the splendid Malvern Theatre in Great Malvern, Worcestershire. This exhibition will run through February and March and visitors to the theatre complex will have the opportunity to view a very impressive set of paintings by three of ArtGallery.co.uk’s leading artists.
In the restaurant area, diners will be able to “feast” their eyes on the beautiful work of Worcestershire-based artist Rosie Lippett. Her Fine Art training at Royal Worcester Porcelain has given her the technique and patience to produce beautifully-composed work, painted with great skill. She has, over the last few years, enjoyed working in oil and at Malvern we are showing some of her “Canal-side” scenes as well as some of her brilliantly-amusing animal work and a lovely woodland landscape. Rosie’s work is becoming eminently collectable. See her work on line here.
In the Foyer, Sheffield-based artist David Allott is showing a range of his abstract pieces – David’s work is beautifully presented and particularly well suited to complement a modern home or office interior. He has a passion for colour and the blues and reds provide an exciting backcloth to the Theatre’s own modern interior – David has relatives in the Malvern area and was delighted to be given the chance to exhibit in such a great location. David’s paintings can be seen on the ArtGallery.co.uk website here.
The upstairs bar area is graced with the work of Merseyside artist David Shiers – self taught, David turned professional in 2003 and has had many successful exhibitions in the North West. He produces a great variety of paintings and is happy working with watercolours and acrylic but the work on display in the Theatre is in oils. His paintings generally start with him taking photographs and sketching “in plein air” (outside) and he then works up the final painting in his studio. You can see Lake District landscapes, City scenes as well as canvases showing “sunny Spain”. You can see more of his work here.
Nestling at the foot of the dramatic Malvern hills, Malvern Theatres is a major centre for the arts in the West Midlands. Home of the famous Malvern Festivals, founded by Bernard Shaw and Barry Jackson in 1929, the theatre has recently celebrated the tenth anniversary of a £7.2 million refurbishment.
Hailed both locally and nationally as a model of artistic and architectural excellence, Malvern Theatres boasts a diverse programme of drama, comedy, music and dance involving the biggest names.
It comprises three auditoria: the 800-seat Festival Theatre, famous for its programme of top touring drama and musicals; the Forum Theatre, a flexible space used for concerts and dance, as well as a 400-seat cinema. Visit the Theatre and see this exhibition yourself; you can see what’s on at the Theatres and the cinema here.
