The work of two Cumbrian artists is being highlighted at a gallery for an entire month.

Lowes Court Gallery, Egremont, is showcasing the stunning artwork of Theresa Beaumont and Natalie Burns throughout June.

Following years of studying and teaching art in America, Theresa recently moved back to Cumbria, and has been working on an extensive series of seascapes.

The Haverigg woman's canvases depict the space, light, colours and dazzle of sky, sea and shore as seen from the West Cumbrian coast.

Her greatest influences have been spiritual teachers in the Sacred Arts, along with a love of Chinese art and the American abstract expressionists.

She said: “Sometimes I discover I have painted two horizon lines with an in-between, and I wonder if there could be two, perhaps a spiritual as well as physical, an ‘offing’.

"Somewhere perhaps I meet them all in the ‘offing’, perhaps where the brush meets paint meets canvas.”

Long-standing Lowes Court exhibitor, Natalie, enjoys experimenting with new materials, considering the creative process a key aspect of evolving her work.

She is currently working on a huge project painting all the buildings mentioned in Pevsner’s historic buildings of Cumberland, and has collected some of her own favourite prints to exhibit framed – a last chance to acquire some of these images – until the project is completed.

Natalie's West Lakeland landscapes feature much-loved fells and woodlands, often including Herdwick sheep, all executed with a bold depiction of outline coupled to the colour harmonies of the Cumbrian seasons at their best.

As well as the two featured artists on show, the gallery always stocks a wide range of locally produced arts and crafts, including paintings by other gallery artists, prints and cards, textiles, glassware, jewellery and wood.

The exhibition runs until July 3, and the gallery, on Main Street, will be open from 10am-1.30pm Tuesday to Saturday, ready to welcome all visitors in supporting local talent.
