Jacqui Lauder – 20th July – 1st August 2021

To be in the great outdoors enjoying lovely food and the wonder of nature is a very British pastime. Picnic Dream is a new body of work using acrylics and pen. Jacqui has replicated the joy of that moment and the happiness it brings, using vibrant and luminous sunny colours to take onlookers into their own world of dream and summer wonder.

Printmaking – Daphne Casdagli RE

Daphne’s landscapes are choreographed from observation and a manipulation of media.

More recently the figure has been the subject over a period of time, drawing from the model. This has enabled the drawings to be translated into a method of drypoint and collagraph maintaining an exuberant spontaneity.

Maggie Cochran

After completing a Fine Art degree at the University of Chichester Maggie Cochran has become a successful contemporary coastal landscape artist.  She paints both the Cornish coast and the Solent shores near where she lives.  She enjoys watching the constantly changing sky and sea and bringing a sense of the weather into her paintings.

Maggie’s love of the ocean has led her to partner up with UK based marine conservation charity Sea-Changers and to raise money for them through her art. 10% of all sales from this exhibition will go directly to them to help preserve the coastline that Maggie so loves.

Vince Lavender

A love of reflected light and landscapes features prominently in his work but living as he does in Emsworth on the south coast of England, inevitably, seascapes are never far away.



Vince is currently experimenting with the presentation of his work in various mediums, as well as the traditional framed photograph.

On exhibition will be pictures printed on canvas, but more unusually images bonded under glass, and directly printed onto aluminium.

Vince is also exhibiting a direct print on wood, a process which deliberately allows for the grain and texture of the wood to be part of the final image.

In March 2021, a photograph, submitted by Vince, was awarded a Top 10 place by the Expert Judges in the UK Amateur Photographer of the Year (APOY) awards, in the Black and White category. The awards, run by Amateur Photographer magazine, gave 9th place to his minimalist black and white image, ‘Walking on a Frozen Sea’, taken whilst on a trip to Finland. This  photograph will also be on show at the exhibition.

Alyson Lomas

Artist Alyson Lomas has always painted and studied at St Martins School – London, Laird School of Art – Birkenhead and gained her BA (Hons) from Liverpool University. Following this she studied at the Winchester School of Art and went on to lecture in Fine Art for 17 years. Alyson was awarded an Arts Council grant to develop her practice.

Alyson’s work reflects her memory of landscape, the colours, shapes and textures are associated with remembered places. The relationship between colour and shape evolves through various stages until a feeling of ‘rightness’ emerges.

Her paintings celebrate the return of some colour in our lives after a very difficult year for everyone. Alyson is showing original paintings together with framed and unframed prints.

Alyson has lived on the West Sussex coast for four years and this is her second exhibition at the Oxmarket Gallery.
