We have launched our new exhibition, Weather Diaries. This follows Inception, our well-received summer abstract show and is in keeping with our intention to refresh artworks every 5-6 weeks.
Weather Diaries opens Saturday 16 September at 9am and will run until 1st November. Atrium Gallery is situated on the upper floor of Lemon Street Market, adjacent to the expanded Fig Cafe.
After the success of our maiden abstract show, we are now showcasing those artists who document and create 'come rain or shine' and in a variety of media. We have selected work that reflects the inspiration that artists take from their immediate surroundings.
As well as paintings, there are sketchbooks and ceramics. The books are an artist’s record and journaling studies and the artist Sue Lewington hopes that visitors will hold and read them - and be inspired to journal themselves.
The result is a contemporary yet timeless show that explores the changes of weather daily and throughout the year.
Gallery Director, Rosie Houghton says: 'We have found it fascinating researching this theme, as each artist appears to approach and respond to weather in different ways. Weather is a really interesting theme for a show as it is something we talk about every day.'
The exhibition showcases a mixture of genres such as landscape, linoprint and still life. Weather Diaries also includes some experimental studies that preclude the work of the final artworks and paintings by well-known artists practising across the UK, such as Colin Moore and Imogen Bone.
Atrium Gallery offers a Buying Art Scheme, allowing payment for artwork, ceramics or jewellery to be spread over 3 months with 0% interest. All artworks within the exhibition are available for purchase, please speak to one of our team when you visit if you would like to know more.

Weather Diaries runs 16 September until 1 November. Atrium opens Monday - Saturday 9:00am - 5:30pm.
