At Tamarisk, we are celebrating our first anniversary on 23rd September by hosting an exhibition of work by Imogen Bone and Daniel Cole. The exhibition will last for two weeks and we welcome anybody to come to the gallery at any point and view the works on offer. To celebrate our birthday and the start of the show, on the morning of Saturday 23rd, we will have cake on offer (handmade by Becky’s Scilly Cakes!) so do come by and celebrate with us!
About the Artists:
Imogen Bone’s love of Scilly led her to spend ten years living and working on the islands and allowed her to develop her innate talent and love of painting. She is now one of Cornwall’s leading contemporary impressionists and as well as exhibiting nationally, she also runs courses with the renowned Newlyn School of Art. The sea and the exceptional light on Scilly is an endless source of inspiration for Imogen, and she captures the unique colour and feel of the islands with a few purposeful brushstrokes. The paintings in this series were inspired by a trip to the islands earlier this year.
Daniel Cole is a member of the prestigious Society of Wildlife Artists and was awarded The Birdwatch-Swarovski Artist of the Year 2016. Working predominantly in oil on board, it is his love of wildlife and his background in scientific illustration that informs his inimitable landscapes, full of colour and energy. Preferring to take his sketchbook out on location before returning to his studio to paint, Daniel has perfected his approach over the years and his sketches and paintings capture his understanding of, and passion for his environment.
