Artists …that I look out for:

Many have exhibited at Sherborne House (Dorset, UK), and been mentioned in “Evolver”, the regional arts magazine

Sandra Blow : Exhibited at Sherborne House in Oct-05 and Innocent fine art in 2006

Angela Charles : Exhibited at Sherborne House, Alpha House Gallery and Blue Lias. Met in Dec-03 at Sherborne House. Own one painting

Susan Caines : Liked her Italian landscapes, particularly “Sienese Landscape I” seen at Alpha House Gallery in Nov-02. Oil on linen gives them a dreamy quality, like a heat haze

Rosanna Chittenden : Was keen to buy a figure Diptych that I saw at exhibition (Sherborne House Jun-01), but it was already sold. (Not on her site, for me to link to, but the images there are similar)

Marzia Colonna : Bronze sculpture of the human form, and drawings. First saw her work at an Alpha House Gallery exhibition in Jun-02, and met during Dorset Art Weeks (Jun-04). Own one drawing

Jessica Cooper : Exhibited at edgarmodern in Dec-05 and Sherborne House in Jul-06

Vicky Finding : Bought one of the Sea studies in Oct-01, from William Pelly Gallery. Met during Dorset Art Weeks (Jun-04)

Alan Hussey : “Beautiful contemporary minimalist furniture in solid English hardwoods.” I agree with this. Saw Alan’s workshop during Dorset Art Weeks (Jun-02). Exhibits at Dansel Gallery

Heidi Konig : Seen at Rostra Gallery in Aug-03

Ian Potts : Liked “‘The edge of the blue’ : Feluccas on the Nile” that I saw at Alpha House (Mar-02)

Jennifer Semmons : Alpha House Gallery Feb-03. I liked a few (“City Sunset”, “Venetian Triptych”, “Vestibule”), but can’t find any images

Amanda Wallwork : Some wonderful colours and shapes. Always come away from her exhibitions with new thoughts, and have several pieces at home. The artist who (Jun-00) first inspired me to buy, and to keep visiting galleries

Joy White : Hand-printed B&W photographs. Met and bought several in Dec-03. Exhibits at Blue Lias gallery
