William H Jones
There are many new original oil paintings by William H Jones to be seen in the gallery at the moment. William has painted most of them on site in the vicinity of Arnside and Silverdale and they include seascapes and coastal scenes. They are hanging alongside scenes of the Cornish coast. These were also painted in situ, on one of Williams recent painting trips to St Ives. He painted them in summery tones and colours and they are presented in attractive modern white square frames.
William has also given us some of his oil paintings of the Kirkby Lonsdale area in various sizes and frames. These include one intriguing evening view over the rooftops of the town with St Marys Church in the distance.
We now have several new original oil paintings by popular local artist Libby Edmondson in the gallery, many of which are large square images of subjects from Devon to the Highlands of Scotland. Libby was featured in a BBC TV programme last year called Glorious Gardens from Above, in which she painted a picture of the gardens at Levens Hall near where she lives, a subject she has painted many times but not in front of the TV cameras! We also have a range of her framed limited edition prints of local views many of which are of the Lake District.
