Experience the space, air, light and colour of the local landscape – Newsletter November 2017

St John Street Gallery invites you to an exhibition by  LEWIS NOBLE

Autumn turning leaves


Preview Thursday November 9th

The exhibition will run until November 25th.

“Painting the landscape allows for freedom of painting, expression and experimentation. I want the paintings to stand in for the landscape,  so when you stand in front of them you get some of the atmosphere of being surround by space, air, light and colour. They are not meant as ‘frozen moments’ in time like a photograph, rather as places that are still happening, moving and alive”. 

There will also be an opportunity to purchase some of Lewis’ older work at a special price.
