Worthing Museum and Art Gallery
23rd November 2013
In the Norwood Gallery they had an exhibition selected from the fine art collection, curated by the winner of the Open 13 exhibition. Below are some drawings and photos from my visit, with some notes about the exhibitions, and some leaflets I picked up.
They had Flowers in Hot Sun by Ivon Hitchens (1975), All the fun of the Fair by Ernest Procter (1926-7) Bernard Meninsky’s Young Woman. They also had Young Gypsies by Laura Knight, 1937.
Mill Near Midhurst by Bruce Barnden was really atmospheric. It was really dark, so it seems almost to have a negative space effect. But with the illusion of space.
Below is a painting by Bob Brighton, named “Four”. When I first saw it I thought it was a woven textile piece, but on further inspection you can see that it is painted squares on canvas. I found this painting very exciting, because of the combination of line, shape and colour. I think it is very unusual.
There is a sculpture garden at Worthing Gallery, and they had an exhibition of Lorraine Philpot’s art. I thought these were interesting for drawing, as they show you natural forms in an alternative way. From the perspective of another person. They were made out of rusted mild steel.
