Meet the Artist: Linda Sharman, Saturday 10th March 2018

Gallery panorama with Tim x2!

I took my friends along to see Leicester and LSA artist Linda Sharman at the Cank Street Gallery last Saturday.  It was a bitterly cold day so my friend’s enjoyed a hot drink and a piece of Linda’s homemade cake! (the chocolate marshmallow was to die for!)
Linda is such a lovely lady; we spoke about how her father, a successful artist, had inspired her technique.  Her exhibition ‘Visions through Light’ features a series of landscapes of Venice and Norfolk.  I’ve always liked the impressionistic quality of her work, which stands alone without any reliance on detail.  The viewer feels like they are there, present in the moment, underneath a vast expanse of sky or looking out from a Venetian bridge. There are remnants of the great impressionists Turner and Monet and like them she creates an atmospheric moment of time. 
‘Visions through Light’ exhibition runs until 21 April.
