Freedom in Painting

Cornwall, colour & Coast

Since 2007, renowned landscape painter and colourist Ashley Hanson, a member of the Newlyn Society of Artists, has hosted a series of courses in Cornwall, under the banner 'Freedom in Painting', attracting artists from all over the country and internationally wishing to push their practice forwards.  In their response to the beautiful costal landscape and harbour-towns of Cornwall - Porthleven, Port Issac, Polperro, Polruan - each artist has found their own personal freedom in painting.  The Group was formed for all participating artists to share work and exhibition news and to continue friendships.  This impressive, contemporary and eclectic collection of work is their first exhibition, bringing the light and colour of Cornwall to Henley-on-Thames.  Each of the twenty-six artists will be showing two paintings, including tutor Ashley Hanson, who, as part of his teaching, produces a painting on each course.

This exhibition combines the work of Helena Levett and Derrick Dunthorne.  There are two main strands to HL's art practice.  Life-like animal portraits and also expressive colourful portrait paintings.

Derrick Dunthorne has been making chairs by 'bodging' (green wood-working) for a number of years now.  Not only aesthetically satisfying they are surprisingly comfortable.  He teaches this traditional skill to people at his home.
