An exhibition by Rob Hames
Saturday 22nd August – Saturday 26th September 2020
Fisherton Mill is delighted to welcome back Wiltshire-born artist Rob Hames whose last exhibition at the Mill in 2018 was a great success. Rob was formally an art teacher but now works as a full time artist producing work which is immediate and instinctive, full of vigorous brush strokes and bold colours.
Rob is usually a plein air artist, working in situ, recording a specific moment whilst in the landscape. This exhibition entitled #PAUSE is a reflection of the current situation of an "existence on hold".
"Lockdown led to a reinvestigation of the local, re-emergence of nature, colour and existence in a condensed geography. My usual landscape explorations upon Salisbury Plain gave way instead to walking the city with sketchbook, and views from windows influencing this body of work".
Meet the Artist - You can meet Rob and find out more about his work each Saturday throughout the exhibition.
Admission is free. Opening hours: Monday-Friday, 10am-3pm; Saturday, 10am-
4pm (opening hours subject to change, please check website)
