With Guest Artists David Meeking and Rebecca Laister
Nichola Campbell is our Featured Artist
Inspired by the anticipation of Spring and warmer days, Nichola Campbell displays her new landscape paintings along with some of her colourful Spring-inspired collages and prints.
Working in lightfast inks on wood panels, Nichola’s latest collection of paintings focus on the welcome arrival of Spring and the majesty of trees in English gardens and woodland landscapes.
She says “My paintings aim to convey the beauty of the season in sparkling colours along with the explosion of life in a serie
s of treescapes full of blossom, new leaves and sunshine”.
Nichola will be on duty in the gallery on Saturday April 14th and Saturday April 28th while she is featured artist, so do pop in to meet her and find out more about her work. You can learn some of the secrets of her collage techniques at one of her workshops for adults in Cuckfield on 10, 16 and 23 April. See more about Nichola here.
The Chalk Gallery, Lewes will be showcasing the artwork of Liza Mackintosh as their Featured Artist 26th February – 18th March 2018. This exhibition will be revealing new abstract paintings, which are strongly influenced by the local natural landscape. Liza’s paintings start as an open ended journey that physically and mentally begin with a walk. Liza is fascinated by the multitude of connections in nature, which she allows to overlap within her pieces. Her unique process leads to unexpected works, which provide an original and in depth insight into the landscape.

Abigail invites you to
Meet the Artist, at Chalk Gallery, Thursday 1st February
5 – 8pm
There is much excitement about Abigail’s large dramatic yet sensitive abstracts and ChalkGallery is delighted to present these brand new paintings created especially for this exhibition.
She says” I paint what I feel, not what I see and these new paintings are an attempt to visualise a blurred place just beyond our comprehension of reality. Whether it’s the sensation of falling asleep, or the moment of breath captured before a speech or song, these paintings seek to conjure an image from something impalpable.”
After a successful solo show in Bath last year, her paintings are receiving much acclaim and she has been selected for “The Other Art Fair” in London March 22 – 25. See more here.
New Artist Eva Wibberley
We are delighted to welcome new artist Eva Wibberley.
The diverse and endlessly changing light and colour of the sea, land and skies of the coasts of Sussex, Cornwall and Cyprus provide the inspiration for Eva’s semi abstract landscapes. See more here.
