Leon Morrocco – Looking Out To Sea John Martin Gallery, co presented with the Portland Gallery 25 June – 31 July Leon Morrocco’s fascination with coastal life set him on a year-long drawing journey, taking in the huts of the Kent coast, Antwerp’s barge repair yards, bathers and fish markets in Portugal and Italy, as well as the working routine of the Riviera’s night fishermen. As the final paintings neared completion in his studio, the exhibition took a new twist with a series of exuberant sea still lives made during lockdown and imagined as if seen from balconies looking down on the harbours and seascapes of his earlier travels.
Richard Harrison – A Darkness I Keep To Myself Felix and Spear Gallery 1 June – 31 July There are two broad strains to Richard Harrison’s practice: figurative works and abstracted landscapes. This exhibition, Harrison’s first with Felix & Spear Gallery, concentrates wholly on the figure.
MIKE BRISCOE (Solo Show) Ffin Y Parc Gallery 19 July – 12 August ”I have always had a strong attraction to coastal seaside images, having lived on the North Wales coast for most of my life it is of no surprise that seaside images have dominated the content of my work. I have often painted scenes from café interiors with the outside visible usually the sea in the distance, I am fascinated with the relationship between the outside and inside and the intangible experience it provides.”
Cecil Beaton – Vintage Photography Huxley-Parlour Gallery (Online Exhibition) 25 June – 18 September Beautiful vintage photography from the 1920’s to the 1960’s by Cecil Beaton. Enter the online exhibition here.
