The Cupboard, Liminal Gallery, 34 Fort Hill, Margate, CT9 1HD
Liminal Gallery is thrilled to announce the second exhibition in The Cupboard exhibition space. 'Night Walks' is a solo exhibition by Margate-based artist Thelma Speirs, which reveals a collection of evocative drawings and paintings, meticulously documented within the pages of a vintage French accounts book. Through Speirs' artistic lens, the urban and natural landscapes of London and Margate converge, giving way to a tapestry of ethereal nightscapes, enchanted woodlands, abandoned sports pitches, mythical creatures, and the enchanting winter skies, intertwining the realms of reality and imagination.
Using a diverse array of mediums, such as acrylic paint, pencil drawing, felt-tip pens, and nail varnish, Speirs captures the elusive moments experienced during nocturnal excursions. Each brushstroke, every pencil mark, and vibrant hue on the paper breathes life into snapshots of a dreamlike narrative.
Visitors will have the unique opportunity to delve into the artist's intimate sketchbook-turned-diary. To further enhance the immersive experience, archival gloves will be provided, allowing viewers to delicately leaf through the pages for an intimate exploration.
All are welcome to join us to celebrate the opening of ‘Night Walks’ on Saturday 29th July, 4-7pm.
