This special exhibition is being hosted by The Gallery, Symondsbury, the new home of Lyme Bay Arts CIC, the group made up of local artists who organise showcases and events around our region. In this one, a wide diversity of subjects, creative processes and styles will be on display: the only key requirement being that all the artwork must be in 16” squares.
Lyme Bay Arts CIC officially launches its new exhibition space, The Gallery, Symondsbury, on 10 August with Terra Incognita, a showcase of recent paintings by Andy Rollo, a lecturer in art and design at Yeovil College, which will run until 21 August. Andy is “excited about exhibiting at Symondsbury for a number of reasons. Firstly, the work I have been producing over the course of the last ten years has been inspired in part by the geology and history of Dorset and in particular the Dorset Ridgeway and Jurassic Coast. Secondly, I feel that this new gallery provides a good opportunity for me to raise my profile. It’s a beautiful location in the midst of the landscape of Dorset. Thirdly, it is exciting for a new gallery to open that provides opportunities for work to be exhibited that isn’t quite as traditional—work that doesn’t only respond to a specific place but delves more into imaginary landscapes and foregrounds visual language elements like shape, line and colour.”
