Corners and Characters: Oxfordshire and Beyond

Friday 14 Dec 2018 to Tuesday 15 Jan 2019

The exhibition brings together the work of Caroline Ritson and Barbara Payne.

‘Corners and Characters’ showcases paintings inspired by traditions, people, and atmospheric corners of Oxfordshire: the Green Man, secret doors, folk musicians, slices of landscape and townscape, historic sites and ancient tracks. ‘And Beyond’ offers seascapes, woodlands, mountains and more, which have special resonance for the artists.

Caroline and Barbara met through a love of traditional music and have firm roots in Oxfordshire. Both work in acrylics and mixed media. Their work glows with colour and an enthusiasm for landscape, people and customs, old and new.
