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.

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.
