An exhibition of bather paintings by the sea!

As temperatures soar, if you fancy a day at the seaside, do pop into Kellie Miller Arts - a beautiful gallery next to Cass Art in Market Street in the heart of Brighton’s lanes. 

BEAT member Stella Tooth currently has two artworks in her popular Ischia bather series on show there with others close on hand for those who’d like to see more.

Stella (venue 31 in this year’s BEAT) grew up in Bournemouth - a town which reminded her Neapolitan mother of the Bay of Naples, which holds Capri, and lesser-known Ischia, in its embrace.  She first visited Ischia after reading Elena Ferrante’s ‘My Brilliant Friend’, the first book in the Neapolitan quartet where the island forms the backdrop to the first sexual encounters of protagonists Lenu and Lila.  Sitting in a café overlooking a small, rocky beach close to the causeway of the Castello Aragonese, she found inspiration for this series of oil paintings watching older, female friends sharing their cares, letting it all hang out, just enjoying the ‘dolce fa niente’ of yet another sunny day.  In their interaction she recognised the soothing power of just being by the sea.

Currently on show. Do call Gallery before you plan to visit to check it is still running.

Towards Abstraction
Jun
8
to Aug 27

Towards Abstraction

'MIXED EXHIBITION
This is an exciting first for Water Street Gallery – an exhibition with a sole focus on abstraction, both ‘pure’ abstraction and works towards abstraction derived from the visual world.

With the theme of ‘Towards Abstraction’ (rather than pure abstraction) many artists in this exhibition do work from reference points whether oriented in landscape, organic, urban and architecture, expressive, or looking inwardly and through personal experience. These elements are then broken down, abstracted, processed into new forms and visual language. Seeing the works in this exhibition – painting, sculpture, original prints, ceramics – it is apparent that the artists’ knowledge of pure abstraction of the early 20th Century has been absorbed and used freely, moving back and forth from purity to visceral reality, blurring the boundaries, in a good way.'

Featuring BEAT artist David Wiseman LG.
