Salterwater : views of the sea exhibition

Last week I hung my first exhibition, (not only was it my first exhibition it was a SOLO exhibition to boot!) So armed with boxes of bubble wrapped paintings I arrived bright and early at the venue to assist with hanging my artwork.

The space that I’m currently exhibiting in was once a butchery department of a Victorian department store and has amazingly high ceilings and the original tiled walls which prove to be an original backdrop to any artwork displayed there.

In total, I hung 12 original oil paintings and a further 13 prints of my work. This was the first time that I had seen the series hung as a collection and it was quite a shock to see them all framed and hanging as a cohesive set of paintings.

The exhibition is now open for viewing and I’ll be hosting an evening on the 29th of March as part of the city’s bi-monthly Artwalk. I look forward to telling all about it and sharing my thoughts on exhibiting for the first time in an upcoming post but until then I just thought that I would share a few photos, I hope that you enjoy!

Until next time,


Unity Works, Wakefield

  1. Wow! Very cool. Congratulations! I love this series – so atmospheric. The colours are muted, giving the paintings a certain softness, but your expression of the subject matter and the way your work the luminosity of the oil paints gives them power too. Thanks for sharing your experience. Looking forward to what happens next! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Myriam, I really appreciate your comment. I’ve had so much enjoyment painting each and every one of these paintings so it’s a lovely opportunity to be able to share them with a wider audience. Best wishes, Tori
