I live in a small town, which is on a cliff, by the sea, so sea related subjects are the theme of this exhibition.
The first thing we see when we turn right out of our front gate is the sea, so we walk down the street towards it where we have to decide whether to turn right or left, depending upon the direction or force of the wind. On gentler mornings we approach the sea direct and search the horizon. How many ships are waiting to go into Teesport? Is the tide out?
Sometimes in early summer the sea is a gentle blue haze and it will be then and in better times when many people will enjoy being on the beach. It will not be for a while, but I hope we shall see it again one day.
Exploring the animal kingdom, real and imagined, through the eyes of artists with a personal and contemporary take on this fascinating genre it the basis of this new exhibition. A first for Water Street Gallery in our 10 years featuring animal creatures.
