PEMBROKESHIRE PAINTER EXHIBITS HER LATEST AND LARGEST WORK AT THE TORCH THEATRE
Local artist, Julie Christine Gannon, is exhibiting some of her latest and largest paintings of the Pembrokeshire Coast at the Oriel Joanna Field Gallery within the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven from Monday 1st to Wednesday 31st July.
Inspired by the beautiful sea and landscapes of Pembrokeshire, Julie’s collection of painting ranges from Minimalist works, in which entire landscapes are captured with a few carefully considered brush strokes, to Maximilist paintings where thousands of brushstrokes and multiple layers of paint are used to re-create landscapes.
Living in Pembroke Dock, Julie said; “Pembrokeshire is a wonderful place with its beautiful sunlit sea, sandy beaches and friendly people, filled with light and rich colours which I hope I capture in my paintings. My paintings are my emotional response to all the beauty and warmth of Pembrokeshire”.
Julie’s works are sometimes lively, sometimes peaceful, but always colourful representations of Pembrokeshire in all its moods. “I paint the way that Pembrokeshire makes me feel”, added Julie.
Julie Christine Gannon’s exhibition of Pembrokeshire landscapes runs from Monday 1 to Wednesday 31 July and can be viewed at all times when the theatre and adjoining café is open.
The Oriel Joanna Field Gallery at the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven features the best of Pembrokeshire’s vibrant arts scene alongside work from further afield. Conveniently situated right next to Café Torch, it’s free to look around at all times when the theatre and adjoining café is open. Café Torch and the Oriel Joanna Field Gallery are on the lower ground floor of the Torch Theatre and both fully accessible.
