2.73 Miles

2.73 Miles...

an exhibition of paintings by Tina Mammoser

at the Calder Gallery from 28th April until 24th May

I'm looking forward to seeing this exhibition next week. Have seen some of Tinas work before and I love it. I'm also quite in awe of her quest to cycle around the coast painting the landscape, whilst I continue to plough the same furrow along the Haworth Old road and back. Maybe one day...

Here's what the Calder Gallery says:

"We first saw Tina’s work at a show in Harrogate and we were captivated by her beautiful use of colour and the atmospheric qualities of her work. Known as the ‘Cycling Artist’, Tina is showing a selection of work from her ongoing project to cycle around the entire coast of the UK, making paintings as she goes. She is fascinated by light, space, simplicity and abstracting the landscape. Tina says that her paintings attempt to ‘capture moments, impressions, a more real memory than the detailed one we might create in our mind’ or see in a photograph. We’d love to see you at the preview of these lovely, soft paintings." Sue and Phil

Wow, I feel like I've gotten a proper review already. :) Thanks so much. (If anyone wants to meet me I'll be there the evening of the 28th April too)

Sue and Phil seem so lovely - I got a really nice email from them after the Northern Art Fair. Can't wait to meet them.

To be honest, I wish I had the patience to paint the same area again and again. I admire artists who do that.
