On Soon! ‘Dancing With Colour’ — 15th January – February 3rd
An Exhibition presented by the Riverside Painters
We are an enthusiastic group of painters motivated by the beauty
of the world around us and the messages it has for us as artists.
Using water colours, pastels. oils and acrylics we let our imagination
guide us toward our choice of colour and form to decide what we
choose to paint.
The result may be restful or delicate, show movement like a
dancer or an angry sea, strength and brilliance of sunset or
distant mountains and the love of nature pictured as
paintings of scenes or animals.
There are many other subjects that give us inspiration.
In this way we portray our ideas with individual style,
combining line with colour, capturing the ever changing
environment which is all involved In the ‘Dance of Colour’ as we paint.

10 JULY: Artist Adrienne Dietrich Exhibition “RUST “
10th July to Sunday 29th July 2018
“I began painting in the early1980’s as a raw beginner, “couldn’t draw a straight line”. l started by using oil paints, then graduated with pastels and now . . . .anything goes!
In recent years, the works of the Expressionists, their strong use of colour and line, has given my work a new vibrancy and strength. l use a variety of paint mediums nowadays, my favourites being watercolour, gouache, pastels and pen& wash”.
