Around and About in Lockdown



Edna Coatsworth’s new show features mixed media works completed during lockdown from visits to Golden Hill Fort, Tennyson Down and Freshwater Bay. Edna says:

“I am a constant sketchbook user and work rapidly ‘on the fly’ progressing the images in my studio. The images are abstracted from memory and emotion using the sketches as a starting point.”

As a painter and printmaker, Edna works from her studio in Freshwater Bay. She particularly favours life drawing and still life as subject matter and often uses charcoal and mixed media to convey her abstracts.

Edna has exhibited both locally on the Island and along the South coast including Lymington, Chichester and Dorset. Her Giclee prints of still life works are available from Yarmouth Gallery.

All works for sale at Aspire Ryde 35 High Street. Viewing daily 24hours from outside the shop window. Shop opening times: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 10.00-13.30 14:30-16:00
