Lime Tree Gallery is a welcoming gallery in the beautiful village of Long Melford.
The owners have a particular love of Scottish contemporary art, and this month launch the long awaited solo exhibition by one of their most successful artists, Judith Bridgland.
Judith says, "In Scotland, where I live and work, you are never very far away from the sea. I have become drawn to painting the sea, especially the rugged shorelines of the west coast of Scotland or Northern Ireland's County Antrim.
However, equally beautiful are the rustling shingle beaches of the Suffolk coast, or the smooth expanses of Morecambe Bay; the drama of Eastbourne Pier striding out into the waves, the sight of a ferry terminal drifting away into the sunset, or the strangely captivating quiet light of Cornwall.
The thing that links them all is how they change - in a season, in a moment, with light and tide and weather. It means that even if you are very familiar with a place, there is always something new and unexpected, and that is very exciting.
My painting is all about contrasts, and about marks and colour that are used both descriptively and emotionally. The paintings are all about real places. Whether they are landscapes or seascapes, the most urban or the most remote, they are all places you can actually go to, and also about what it feels like to be there, so they are about real experiences as well".
The exhibition runs until November 16, 2010. Contact the gallery on 01787 319046 or www.limetreegallery.commore information.
