1st and 2nd December 2018 10am to 5pm
Brockhill Studio, Colaton Raleigh, Devon, EX10 0LH
Two summers ago Alan Cotton travelled to Transylvania to gather new ideas for his paintings. For many it is a land of legend and mystery, but for Alan it was an amazing discovery of a landscape and way of life largely unchanged for centuries. The wildflower meadows, hayricks and village cultivation provided rich material for a series of paintings of this pastoral landscape. For this studio exhibition he has produced a collection of new Transylvanian paintings together with work from Provence, Venice, Piemonte and Hartland in North Devon.
The exhibition is open for two days only, when the artist will be there to welcome anyone who would like to visit the studio and see his work.
