Field and Fell

Exhibition FROM: Monday, 6 May 2019 TO: Friday, 7 June 2019

  • Description
    Field and Fell portrays an artistic journey across Britain painted by landscape and portrait artist Gillie Cawthorne. Trevelyan College graduate, Gillie begins her journey on the rugged Welsh coast, visits farmyards in Herefordshire, crosses the roof of England, pauses in her home town of Durham and meets the North Sea on the smooth sands of Holy Island. This selection of Gillie’s work showcases some of the heritage breeds of animal she encountered and the magical landscapes they inhabit.

    Gillie’s landscapes are brought to life by dramatic skies and the play of sunlight, be it strong spring and summer top light, or the subtle shimmer of a frosty winter morning. Her animal portraits show the character of the subject: the quiet assurance of a Herdwick, intense energy of a red squirrel or star quality of a real-life Miss Piggy!
