The Lemongrove Gallery, in Henley are delighted to announce that award-winning artist Rebecca Lardner will be joining them as guest of honour to unveil her enchanting new collection on Friday 19th April between 7- 9 pm. Featuring her latest collectable Limited Editions, and some rarer older images, the exhibition will also feature a charming collection of previously unseen Original Paintings.
Rebecca’s distinctive oils on canvas are beautifully depicted portrayals of life on the land and the sea. The large ensemble cast of figures, boats and sea birds creates an impression of ceaseless activity, and this is heightened by the natural curves of the classic English harbour which provide movement and energy. Her palette is based strongly on the colours of the sea, with blues, greens and greys dominating the entire canvas. It is all too easy to be charmed by these quirky yet stylish harbour scenes
Rebecca was born in Purbeck, Dorset in 1971. After completing an Art Foundation Course she graduated from the University of Liverpool with a BA Honours degree in Illustration. She went on to build a highly successful career as an artist and illustrator, fulfilling commissions for a number of high-profile clients including Paul McCartney’s Music Academy, as well as a range of magazines and record sleeves.
Rebecca is now able to devote more time to her painting and has travelled the world from Ireland to India undertaking prestigious corporate commissions. She has exhibited in a range of high calibre galleries in the UK, Europe and the USA and her evocative oils sell to collectors from all over the world.
Gallery Manager, Kirsty Chapman, commented “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Rebecca back to the gallery and showcase such a stunning collection. The demand for the work has spiraled since she won ‘Best Up and Coming Artist’ at Fine Art Trade Guild Awards in 2010. I know many of her collectors will jump at the chance to see such an array of her work in one place and possibly acquire one of her highly sought-after Original paintings.”
The exhibition will be on from the 13th – 30th April at the Lemongrove Gallery at 10 Duke Street.
