An exhibition of watercolour paintings by Alice Jackman.
Recently reconnecting with her childhood haunts in South Africa, Alice has captured the essence of this wild, untamed landscape with its ever-changing light and enabling space to inhale the expanse and contemplate the Infinite.
Those acquainted with the worlds smallest floral kingdom, the Cape, will find memories stirred of Atlantic swells making landfall, verdant fynbos and the otherworldly intensity of the African palette. For those yet to visit, this is a tantalising preview. Sir Francis Drake rounded the Cape on his voyage round the world and called it "a most stately thing and the fairest Cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth"
Alice will also be painting all week and welcomes the chance to talk to others who love colour.
