A Somerset Sketchbook - New Exibition
Local artist Stella Murray Whatley is holding her long-awaited exhibition in the Creative Innovation Centre in Taunton beginning on 20th March and running through to the 17 April.
Entitled ‘A Somerset Sketchbook’, Stella had put together a collection of paintings, drawings and etchings which aim to capture the rich and varied images that represent Somerset, including its people.
“As a professional painter and printmaker, I studied at London Colleges with an interest that began in primary school. As soon as I was old enough I set about the very serious business of becoming an artist!” said Stella.
“My interest has always been about communicating, in an accessible way, a shared pleasure and recognition of what the world offers us as visual ‘treats’.
’I hope when people see the exhibition that they find I have communicated the enjoyment of everyday beauty.”
The Exhibition is open from Monday – Saturday 9.30 am - 12.30pm and also Mondays 5pm - 7 pm.
Stella herself will be at the exhibition every Saturday during the run from 10 am - 12.30 pm and Mondays 5pm-7pm.
