‘Patterns of Thought’ paintings by Kate O’Dempsey and Ruth Morrissey.
This delightful, colourful exhibition is on for just one week. The two artists, both Liverpool-based, have not collaborated or exhibited together before.
Ruth is a recent Graduate in Painting whereas Kate is a speech-therapist who has only been painting for a year. Both have experimented with different media and tools including feathers and toothpicks! The majority are watercolour on paper.
I think the two go well together, both paint without much pre-planning, putting pen or brush to paper and letting the patterns unfold (hence the title). The outcomes are quite different between the two artist though, some very free-flowing, others have more structures.
Most of the works are for sale with 20 percent of sales being donated to the Ebola Orphans, Kenema, Sierra Leone.
Exhibition runs Tuesday – Saturday 1-5 September 2015.
Open 12.00 – 18.00 (12.00 – 20.00 on Thursday)
