THE Colour Unleashed exhibition at Elmslie House which has had to be rescheduled three times due to lockdown restrictions had a very successful opening weekend last week.
And the collection which brings together three Worcester artists – Susan Birth, Cherrie Mansfield and Caroline Hall – is also available to view at the venue from 11am to 5pm this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 11 to 13.
The trio are all united in their love of vibrant colour and acrylic paint but each one has their own distinctive style.
Their combined works create an exhibition rich in colour, pattern and texture.
Drawing on inspiration such as landscapes and urban streets, Susan, Cherrie and Caroline hope to evoke thoughts and memories, as well as fire the imagination.
Caroline’s vibrant landscapes are highly collectible. She has completed many large-scale commissions and her work-also features on silk scarves and Herefordshire-brewed ale.
Cherrie’s expressive artwork is characterised by mesmerising contours of colour and undulating textures. She has recently completed an elephant sculpture for Worcester’s Big Parade this summer.
Susan makes bold use of colour, pattern and texture using a variety of media to create lively, eye-catching art. She is a finalist in this year’s Broadway Arts Festival and has created artwork for several charities. Susan is also one of the organisers for this year’s Worcester Open Studios.
Elmslie House owner Anna Taylor said: “Having originally been planned for May last year, we’re thrilled that the exhibition can now take place and Susan, Cherrie and Caroline’s amazing paintings will finally be hung on the walls at Elsmlie for everyone to see.”
During opening times there is no need to book but in line with current Covid restrictions, the number of people in the hall at any one time will be limited.
This will be done using a traffic light entry system that will indicate whether a short wait is needed before entry.
