Rosemary Trigwell's paintings will be on public display from 10 to 18 May in free exhibition
Inglewood House, the centrepiece of the Audley Retirement Village near Kintbury in Berkshire, will host a free art exhibition with a series of paintings by artist Rosemary Trigwell on display as part of the Open Art in Berkshire season.
The watercolour paintings to be exhibited cover a variety of subjects including local countryside scenes, still life studies and life drawings. Rosemary is well known in the area for her paintings of birds and farm animals including her own gaggle of geese and inspiration often comes from her Berkshire surroundings. As a Kintbury resident, Rosemary has previously painted Inglewood House before its rebuilding and re-opening as a luxury retirement village in 2013.
Rosemary says: “I work in watercolour, painting still life subjects, landscapes and countryside scenes, often featuring cows and sheep. I love to recreate the texture of the subject, the roughness of an old stone wall or the hair on an animal’s back. I am delighted to have been invited to exhibit my work for Open Studios 2014 at the prestigious Audley Inglewood Retirement Village.”
Nick Sanderson, CEO of Audley Retirement, adds: “We are pleased that her work can be enjoyed by visitors and village residents alike. Set in idyllic countryside, Audley Inglewood seems the perfect venue to display these beautiful paintings.”
Audley Inglewood is home to a number of stunning apartments and the Audley Club which includes the Walmesley Restaurant and Blandy’s Bar/Bistro, swimming pool and Health & Wellbeing Centre.
Audley Retirement Villages enables those who live there to enjoy an independent and healthy retirement in their own homes and in a like-minded community. They enjoy full access to the Audley Club and its range of facilities with flexible care and support available should it become necessary. Individuals buy their home or apartment from Audley and own it on a 125 year lease.
