12:02pm Wednesday 2nd July 2014 in News
ART lovers can enjoy tranquil landscape paintings and sinuous white marble in a new exhibition opening in Moreton.
Ryutaro Ikeda and Louise Plant: Feeling Space is opening at 6pm on Saturday, July 12 in Celia Lendis Galleries, High Street, and runs until September 12.
Japanese artist Ryutaro Ikeda first lived in England for a year in 2009, before returning to Japan, where his reputation as a landscape painter is significant.
In 2014 he returned to the Cotswolds permanently, and this is his first solo exhibition since his arrival and includes a number of significant paintings of landscape.
Joining him in the exhibition is work by sculptor Louise Plant who uses marble, bronze, steel, copper and aluminium.
She was recently awarded Sweden’s largest scholarship for artists – to work with granite over the 2014 summer and this exhibition will feature her work in white marble.
The gallery is open from 10amto 5pm daily except Tuesdays.
