Painting Light with A Brush with India by Daisy Perkins and Georgie Vestey
26th November - 1st December
11 am - 6 pm Saturday until 3 pm
After a fantastic summer, this new Paul Brown collection features numerous London sunrise paintings.
One of Brown’s favourite views is looking out towards St. Paul’s Cathedral from Waterloo Bridge. Setting up early allows Brown to capture the sun as it rises behind St. Paul’s. This is a rare event, happening only in the summer months on a clear day.
Brown is fascinated by the colours created by dawn and dusk. This has led him to paint the sunrise and sunsets in both Venice and Corfu.
Brown is equally at home painting beach scenes and is well known for his triptych depictions of such scenes. Many of his beach scenes feature his own children and he makes regular painting trips to the beaches of West Wittering and Norfolk.
'A Brush With India' is an exhibition of paintings by classically trained artists Georgie Vestey and Daisy Perkins. It follows their residency with SCAD charity based in Tamil Nadu, Southern India. The work depicts the everyday life, people and landscapes of the local villages. Inspired by the light, colours, and communities of the area, they have brought together a collection of about 70 paintings.
SCAD is a social development charity that supports over 600 villages focussing education, healthcare, social support and women's empowerment.

Georgie Vestey is a young London based artist. Having studied at City and Guilds School of Art and London Fine Art Studios she now focuses on painting plein air landscapes.

She finds it exciting how her work can enable the exploration of new places and the opportunity to meet new people.
