Our featured artist for the month of July is Rebecca Morledge who creates wonderfully intricate birds eye view street scenes.This month we are joining forces with our friends at Studio 61 Karina Goodman who is also showing Rebeccas work:
gallery2gallery is the partnership between Cromford Studio and Gallery and Studio 61 Karina Goodman Gallery two artists studios working together to showcase their own work and that of other selected friends of the gallery. This is the first joint exhibition by one artist at both venues and as it is the height of summer what better way to see the work of your favourite artists than taking the historic trail that lies between.
On the trail you will discover unique book shops, tea rooms, two historic mills, canal trips, the birth place of the industrial revolution and Florence Nightingale to name just a few!
Rebecca's Artists Statement:
I graduated from Derby University in 2005 with a BA in Illustration. I have since then continued to develop my style and have been working in watercolour and ink since 2009.
People and landscapes fascinate me. I like to not only make people see the city in a new light but also the people around them. Every time that I walk through a street there is something interesting and different, it is never the same, not even for a minute. I like to paint buildings that you never normally see, the complicated back buildings behind a classic facade, the rooftops and those very top floor windows that you would never normally notice.
Through my paintings I want people to appreciate the beauty around them everywhere and also the characters within it.
Rebeccas work is displayed at: Studio 61 Tue - Sat 10 -5 and Sun 11- 4pm
Cromford Studio and Gallery Wed - Sun 10 -5pm.
