'Seasons' - An Exhibition by John Connolly

to Aug 3

'Seasons' - An Exhibition by John Connolly

John is a landscape/seascape artist and he is particularly interested in looking at the ever changing light, colour and textures within the landscape across the seasons.

He often paints one area in different seasons, weather, and lighting conditions. His favourite time of day is very early morning when the sun rises and the world wakes up, as painting at that time is a kind of celebration for being alive for another day.

This exhibition is an eclectic mix of work, showing his response to the beauty of all seasons.
