New gallery for Axminster opens with Royal Academician

"In The Beginning" is The Marle Gallery's adaptly named inaugural exhibition which opens with the private view on 26 November 2011.

'In The Beginning' is The Marle Gallerys adaptly named inaugural exhibition which opens with the private view on 26 November 2011.

'In The Beginning' features the work of three London based artists who are being shown for the first time in the south-west, including the celebrated printmaker, Peter Freeth RA, who has exhibited widely in the UK, USA, Italy, Japan, India and Russia. Peter was elected a Member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and Royal Academician in 1991. His most recent solo exhibition was held in the Royal Academy of Arts Tennant Room in 2009, and his work is in many private collections including the Metropolitan Museum, New York, National Gallery, Washington DC, Arts Council of Great Britain and Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

Nick Broomfield, proprietor of The Marle Gallery says We are delighted Peter has chosen The Marle Gallery for his first ever exhibition in the West Country. Together with Sonia Martin, and Tony Beaver we have a fabulous opening exhibition from three really serious artists that have not been widely seen in the south-west. Our simple aim in opening The Marle Gallery is to share our life-long love of contemporary art and in so doing bring something new and unique to the southwest. It has to be art we love ourselves and can honestly promote to a wider audience. Im pleased to say that we have set the bar really high for ourselves with this opening exhibition , and we aim to continue exceeding all expectations in the future.

The by-invitation private view on 26 November, 4-8pm is also the gallerys opening party, with light bites provided by the neighbouring River Cottage Canteen, and a chance to meet all three artists ahead of the exhibition opening on 28 November. In The Beginning runs until 31 January 2012. If you would like to attend the private view, please get in touch with Nick Broomfield at nick@themarlegallery.co.ukMore information, including map and directions can be found at www.themarlegallery.co.uk
