Wisbech artists Sue Payne and Margaret Waller will showcase their work at Greyfriars Art Space in King’s Lynn next week.
The free exhibition, titled ‘When Two Worlds Collide’, sees oil paint used in two different ways - with one artist painting Alla Prima (in one session) and other taking several weeks of layering and scraping back the paint.
Wisbech artist Sue Payne is “a tonal artist, creating an impression of what people see. Her paintings lead the eye into the picture, intriguing you and making you wonder,” say organisers.
“They draw the viewer beyond colour, to the story within the painting. Her work is unique, fresh and alive.”
Margaret Waller, former head of art and design at Isle of Ely College Wisbech, “uses layers of oil paint to produce a deeply textured and colourful finish to her paintings. Two themes are explored for this exhibition, women and their hats, and Italian street scenes,” say organisers.
The exhibition will be open daily from Saturday 1 July to Saturday 8 July and admission is free.
