Petrina Kent’s new exhibition Deeper marks a new phase in her practice, treading familiar ground, but through fresh eyes.
Petrina has a great fondness for exploring the landscape, from which she draws inspiration for her work, works that offer her translation and expression of her connection to the essence and spirit of a place. Through her use of vivid colour, natural form, and considered composition, another dimension to these landscapes can be seen and felt, drawing the onlooker to engage on a spiritual level.
Viewers are invited to into the landscapes that Petrina paints, to create their own narrative, and join her in the search for that ‘something else’ that can only be found when immersed in the natural landscape.
Deeper is presented with support from The Isle of Man Arts Council. The exhibition will be open to the public at the Sayle Gallery from 8th September – 7th October 2018.
You are most welcome to go along to the Private Viewing and Book Launch of ‘T’oltans Reclaimed – A reflection of times past’ by Ray and Niamh Kelly.
This is going to be a fascinating collection of Tholtan themed bringing you closer than ever, to the life of the iconic tholtans and landscape of the Manx hillsides.
Friday 7th September, from 6:00pm, at the Hodgson Loom Gallery, Laxey Woollen Mills. Nibbles and refreshments will be available.
And last but by no means least, Adam Berry has a new show, Jigsaw2, opening at The Isle Gallery on 23rd September.
Have a great week!
