The Emma Carter - Island Artist annual show will take place at the stunning Harbour House Gallery in Kingsbridge 20 August until 1 September. The launch of the 2013 collection will feature originals and new limited editions inspired by her family home on Burgh Island, the ocean and and South West coastline and rivers.
She says of the collection: “I love big stormy seas, wild winds and the raw coastline of the South West. I like islands too, especially Burgh Island. I like empty beaches where I can swim on hot sunny English days, and big wide skies that offer up a myriad of colours. I dream, I think, I paint. I paint what I love. There is nothing more or less than that. Every brush stroke I make reminds me of the feeling of these things, these elements of life, and I try to translate that free spirited essence that I think we all crave from time to time. The sea, the weather and the land we stand upon are great levellers and teachers, as great as the masters I have studied, but when it comes down to it, I am just an artist who simply loves to paint.”
The exhibition is on from 20 August until 1 September, 10-5.30pm daily.
