11 May – 23 May

‘From Norway to Chichester’ – Ghislaine Davis

The exhibition is of oil paintings and watercolours from Norway, France and the area around Chichester. There are motives from where Ghislaine has lived from her keen amateur photographer husband’s photographs.  After visiting her husband’s sister in Canada, she was introduced to the Canadian Group of Seven who have been a constant influence for their use of colours, light and winter landscapes.

Living in Norway gave Ghislaine plenty of opportunity to paint snowscapes that really interested her.  The interesting skies and seascapes in Chichester area have also been an inspiration as in the west of Norway.

27 April – 9 May

Houseboat Artists, ‘In and Out of The Frame.’

“We are a diverse group of artists who, prior to the Covid pandemic, met regularly on a Shoreham Houseboat.

Since lockdown we have continued to keep in contact via WhatsApp and Zoom and have inspired one another to keep on creating.

We present an interesting variety of work – sculpture, painting, drawing,  prints, mosaic, collage, hand made books and cards and more.

Our first joint exhibition in 2019 at Skyway gallery, Shoreham was a huge success and we are now fired up for our next, in the beautiful setting of the Oxmarket”


20 – 25 April

‘The Art of Clive McBain’

“I am delighted this April to have been invited back to The Oxmarket Gallery to exhibit both my representational and contemporary paintings in the beautiful John Rank Gallery, a gallery which never fails to fill me full of joy.

Although this exhibition is for one week only, it affords me an opportunity to show my paintings in beautiful surroundings.

My work has pleased so many people over the years, paintings that clearly illustrate my love of detail, craftmanship and meticulous rendering over a large range of subjects.

A few of my representational paintings are in a more colourful, contemporary style and because they are sizable, look impressive as a main feature on a large wall.

I have sold illustrations and paintings internationally. My work has been featured on ITV Meridian Television, in “Sussex Life” extensively in The Sussex Press and many times at The Oxmarket Gallery.”

Clive has exhibited in London and across the South Coast, and has held six two-week solo exhibitions at Petworth House West Sussex to great acclaim.
