Yesterday I went to see an exhibition of fine art paintings by artist Kristin Vestgård at Badcocks Art Gallery in Newlyn
Kristen is a Norwegian painter who studied art at Falmouth College of Art, Cornwall. As soon as I saw the exhibition advertised I was drawn to it ... I had to go and see the paintings for myself!
Her paintings are quietly beautiful, ethereal, dreamlike, enigmatic, spellbinding and I fell in love with many of them
Many of her enchanting paintings feature beautiful figures of women. Her still life paintings of cups are gorgeous and spots and dots feature on clothing, backgrounds and cups
Her 2009 exhibition is called "Inside Dreamers"
I bought two of her gallery books from previous exhibitions
"Heaven Can Wait" (2006)
"Sweet Disguises" (2007)
On the right is the exhibition preview brochure for "Inside Dreamers"
If you are not able to get to a gallery this weekend then you may like to visit this online gallery of hand embroidery and textile art. I found this wonderful exhibition through Jackie's blog - Stitchworks - the exhibition features work by many different artists including Jackie and Jeanamarie
