Coming to the Aldeburgh branch of Thompson’s Gallery this July is popular artist Terence Clarke with his 7th solo exhibition with the gallery. Known particularly for his use of vibrant colours to capture an eclectic scene or setting, the upcoming exhibition will showcase works created during the artist’s travels around the world. Very much inspired by the South of France and how well the exuberance of the setting can be captured with paint, this is the perfect exhibition to draw in the summer season.
The landscapes on show at the exhibition will take viewers on a journey with Clarke through Europe and onto the US. The first stop is in Port d’Olon, near Cassis, shown through a variety of large paintings. Moving onto the Cote d’Azur, the landscapes continue to excite and draw viewers into the story of the setting. In a selection of still life paintings, the liveliness comes out even more strongly. Expect scenes from Maccum and Sloten in Friesland, Holland and Cape Cod, too.
Thompson’s Gallery, a gem in the heart of Aldeburgh, is a well regarded hub for culture, showcasing a rich selection of solo and mixed artist exhibitions. Run still by the Thompson family which it has been since the Aldeburgh branch’s opening in 1982, it only took nine years for the gallery to expand to the Cotswolds and both in London’s West End and the City of. Started by Sue and John Thompson originally, other family members have joined the business giving each gallery a real home-owned, trustworthy vibe to view and buy art. The London gallery can be found popping up at prestigious art shows such as the London Art Fair and the Affordable Art Fairs, too.
