An Exhibition of Landscape and Wildlife Paintings
Alison Tyldesley and Diane Bailey
During this difficult time when galleries and museums are closed it is still possible to view the vibrant work of two local artists. Paintings by Alison and Diane will be hung in Colonnade House and can be viewed from the picture windows on Warwick Street and High Street from 26th May to 7th June. Colonnade House website is providing online images and video tours of the exhibition as well as studio-based videos of the artists talking about their creative processes.
In a show that promises to be ‘Bold, Bright, Intuitive and Engaging’, two newcomers to Worthing with established reputations as artists have formed an artistic partnership to exhibit their work together. The paintings reveal complementary views of the natural world. Alison’s spacious semi-abstract landscape paintings will partner Diane’s close up and sympathetic wildlife pieces. Moody seascapes and sunlit hills will sit alongside bright-eyed birds and curious mammals.
The artists have recently relocated from Yorkshire and Dartmoor respectively bringing strong reputations with them. Both have studios at Colonnade House where they met, made friends and shared their love of paint and nature. This is the first chance to see a substantial number of their works gathered together in Worthing.
Alison has exhibited successfully both nationally and internationally and her work is in private collections in New York, Hong Kong, Singapore and across the UK. She has a degree in Fine Art from Exeter and now dedicates herself to an art career.
Diane is a BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year winner with work selected by national academies. She studied Zoology before gaining a degree in Art and Design, worked for conservation organisations, is a keen scuba diver and has travelled the world several times.
