The Lemon Timers
An exhibition of contemporary paintings and sculptures
Saturday 30th August to Saturday 28th September 2019
The Lemon Timers are a talented group of Wiltshire-based artists who exhibit widely in London, Salisbury
and across the South of England. The group come together for twice weekly workshops in Salisbury including life drawing in the form of minute-long poses timed by the lemon-shaped kitchen timer from which they derive their name.
Patricia Webb who will be exhibiting a series of exciting semi-abstract paintings inspired by ‘wild’ landscapes says of the group “the life drawing sessions bind us together, but it’s our artistic diversity which makes us interesting”.
Caroline Curtis draws inspiration for her exciting and colourful, semi-abstract oil paintings while walking her dog in the Woodford valley whilst Margaret Gill’s wonderful semi-abstract, atmospheric paintings are
inspired by her holidays in Cornwall and in Scotland. Anne Tompson describes her work as “a sensitive
appreciation of light and of the landscape” whilst Susan Wiltshire paints landscapes of beautiful quality
describing her work as “an abstraction of colour in the human form”.
The exhibition will also feature drawings and paintings from Ann Ballantyne who is rediscovering her considerable talent for figurative art and Debra Sweeney who last year exhibited in the Mall Galleries, London, and who brings her semi-abstract, graphic and figurative collage paintings to the Mill.
Pamela Leatherland who as a retired art teacher is the group’s art critic and its inspiration exhibits paintings influenced by her magnificent stained-glass creations. She has an established reputation across the south of England.
Last but by no means least is sculptor Martin Wright who creates wonderful bronze and bronze resin figures particularly enjoying sculpting the human form, usually in action.
Don’t miss this exciting exhibition by some of Wiltshire’s finest!
