WATER AND SKY
15th August-1st October
In this exhibition, two
local artists--Mary Noon and Vivienne Littley--explore the constantly
changing environments of our skies, seas and waterways through the media
of watercolour, acrylics and collage. They capture luminosity with
metallics, drama with textures and emotional interaction through colour,
offering the viewer a varied and exciting palette.
As they explain, “we have
chosen ‘Water and Sky’ as our theme as we are constantly drawn to
their ceaseless fluidity, movement and transformation, even within a few
seconds of observation. New colour spectrums emerge, expressing mood
alterations, sometimes subtle, sometimes dramatic.
New textures are created and dissolved, while the light continues to play
in both mediums of sky and water, while exhibiting a symbiotic
relationship in reflection and mood.”

WALKS and Tours
Do take advice about safe tide times before
setting off for more than fifteen minutes hike, without a guide, along our beautiful beaches: - what appears to be an easy bit of ground to scramble over is more likely to be a treacherous mud slide - don't take a chance!
Get Fossiling on the
Jurassic Coast! Join one of Lyme Regis Museum’s famous fossil walks
along this historic stretch of Dorset coast with Geologist Paddy Howe
and Marine Biologist Chris Andrew. Some families return time and again
to search with Paddy and Chris among the sand and rocks for fossils that
have been washed down onto the beach after 190 million years. For adults
and children alike, it’s an unforgettable experience.
Each walk is limited to 15 people per guide. Start times for walks vary according to the tides and take about three hours.
