We are delighted to have added several new artists to the Cove Gallery stable this Spring and their new collections are adorning the window and walls of the gallery.
David Brackston is a lifelong painter. Working from his studio in Crewkerne in Somerset, he specialises in landscapes and seascapes inspired by his love of the South West.
Janet Rogers has a unique abstract style blending mixed media including Japanese silk paper, glass beads, gold leaf and acrylics.
James Grummett lives on Portland and takes his inspiration from Portland’s micro-climate, using charcoal, oils and acrylics to capture paintings of smoothness and texture, light and shade.
Jude Taylor is a self taught artist who is based in Dorset and her contemporary style captures the ever changing mood, light and atmosphere of Dorset sea and landscape.
Bernard Wheadon works in a very unusual media known as Gouache. This is a French word for opaque watercolour paint consisting of pigment, water and a binding agent (Bernard uses chalk)
