Mixed media exhibition opens at Pie Factory Gallery in Margate

Work by Sarah Walpole is now on display at Pie Factory in Margate

A little feeling, a mixed media art exhibition by Sarah Walpole, opens at Pie Factory Gallery in Margate this evening (December 29).

The exhibition is a mix of paintings, assemblages and 3D works.

Artist Sarah said: “I am constantly recording down moments and experiences, everything from the glances of strangers, to my own thoughts and feelings, it all infiltrates back into my work.

“These records take form as little notes, sketches and scrawls and it is these treasures that go on to inspire the paintings, drawings and book forms that I produce – quite diary like in their execution.

“ It is hoped that the paintings work on multiple levels, in being both visually pleasing, even pretty in some cases, but also thought provoking, allowing the viewer to read something else into them.

“My writing is almost miniature, therefore quite a challenge to decipher, often disguised as texture or mark making. I like that it is not very obvious to the casual viewer, but if the audience takes the time to really look into the pieces, that they might be rewarded”.

The exhibition has a private view from 6pm to 9pm this evening and then runs until January 2.

Pie Factory Margate, at 5 Broad Street, is open from 11am to 5pm.
