The main ground-floor corridor at Cumberland Lodge is currently awash with colour from the 'For Love in Creation' exhibition by local artists, Sally Anne Wake-Jones and Peter Jones.
The exhibition will be available to view on the following mornings, from 9-11am:
- Saturday 25 January
- Saturday 15 February
- Saturday 28 March
The artists will be attending all three open mornings, to meet visitors and talk about their work.
About the artists
‘For Love in Creation' is a collection of works inspired by the landscapes of Windsor Great Park. Sally Anne, and husband Peter, a chartered surveyor by profession, share a love of the natural environment. For the last three years, they have been working together on canvases, to create a unique collection of paintings that portray the historic parkland that surrounds Cumberland Lodge.
Sally Anne Wake-Jones studied art at London University College of Education. She had her first solo exhibition at the Century Gallery, Henley, and has exhibited her paintings in galleries across the south-east of England. Her work is featured in four editions of the French publication R.E.G.A.R.D.S. She divides her time between her art and the family business, which sells educational material all over the world.
Their paintings are large, spontaneous statements, infused with light and inspired by the beauty of nature. The couple are frequent visitors to the South of France, and the intense light of that region influences their bold use of colour.
‘Come and share our journey’
Sally Anne said, 'Our paintings express our worship and praise to our Creator. They depict symbols such as the forms of ancient oaks (which are symbolic of divine providence), the cycle of life and decay, and the flat, wide landscape that rolls on like the ever-changing seasons.
‘We are excited and honoured to be able to exhibit in such a beautiful and prestigious location and welcome everyone to come and share our journey'.
Admission to the open mornings is free and all are welcome. There is no need to book in advance and there is free parking on site.
The exhibition is on the ground floor of the main Lodge building - accessed via the front door and Tapestry Hall - and it is wheelchair-accessible.
All the works on display are available for purchase.
