Art’s still a Shining Light

Author: Online Stories Published: 28th May 2012 10:20

Sales of Poole-based artist Kathryn Thomas' new collection ‘Shining Lights 2012' are proving that original art continues to be seen as a good investment in difficult times.

Four oil paintings were sold on the opening day and since then more than a hundred art lovers and seven dogs have been through the Poole studio doors.

The show, which runs until Monday June 4, features 54 interpretations of the natural light displays across Canford Cliffs and Poole Bay.

Kathryn said: "This is the first time I have based a whole collection on the one location and I am delighted to see ‘Shining Lights 2012' has been so well received."

Kathryn's previous collections have been on show in London, Bristol, Bordeaux, the Netherlands, Texas and Reykjavik.

Kathryn added: "Over the past few weeks, I have enjoyed meeting people from the local area and hearing their interpretations of my work. I am looking forward to meeting many more people and hearing many more opinions over the weeks to come."
