Stunning paintings from renowned artist on show at Sally Mitchell Fine Arts Gallery in Tuxford
The work of some amazing artists will be on display as a gallery hosts its annual art exhibition.
Sally Mitchell’s Gallery in the Market Place, Tuxford, is currently holding an exhibition featuring original paintings from a number of internationally known artists
The gallery will be open for viewing from 9:30am to 4:30pm most days and 2pm on Saturdays, until November 25.
A gallery spokesman said: “We are incredibly lucky that several of our artists live locally so their depictions of the countryside are heavily influenced by the beautiful North Nottinghamshire landscape.
“In celebration of this brilliant bunch, we thought we’d give you a little background on the gifted individuals living in our midst.”
The exhibition features a wide range of artists, including one of England’s leading equestrian artists, Malcolm Coward.
He takes inspiration from the light and the colours of the Spanish sunshine and its ability to beautifully highlight the detail of a horse.
He recently received two awards from The Society of Equestrian Artists Annual Exhibition — The Michael Harding prize for the Best Oil Painting and The Best in Show prize.
John Trickett is a Nottinghamshire based artist an is a renowned British dog portraitist.
His paintings of black Labradors were once described by the Shooting Times as some of the finest in the world and he takes a keen interest in studies of wildlife.
Paul Doyle is also a dog portraitist whose works have been displayed internationally and specialises in capturing the unique personalities of different dog breeds.
There will also be paintings by Jonathan Walker who is inspired by the Devonshire countryside.
Painting will be available to buy on a first come, first served basis and the gallery offers a comprehensive framing service.
Also housed above the gallery is The Museum of the Horse which will be open to the public for the course of the exhibition, from 9:30am to 4pm each day.
It is the only museum in the UK that holds a such a wide collection covering utilitarian equestrian items from antiquity to the present day, and from many parts of the world.
