Powerful Depictions of Great Dixter4th November 2013 • Stephanie's Blog • Stephanie Donaldson
There’s a stunning exhibition of artist Anny Evason’s drawings of the gardens at Great Dixter at the First Sight Gallery in Hastings Old Town. She has been doing her charcoal drawings (some with a splash of colour) at Dixter for the past four years It is the type of art that stops you in your tracks – that’s certainly the effect it has had on me and I’ve been prowling round the house trying to find a suitable spot where I could hang one of her drawings. This is quite a difficult ‘sell’ domestically as Andrew points out the stacks of unhung paintings propped against walls. Nevertheless, if I can find a space that would do it justice I am seriously tempted. Oh for a minimalist house in need of a focal piece of art! The charcoal drawings range from quite small to enormous and range in price from £225 to £1500. To make them even more tempting, they can be bought in instalments with a 25% deposit – I’ve bought art this way before and do consider it an excellent arrangement – it really does make art affordable. The exhibition runs until November 17th with the gallery open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, or you can see Anny’s work here.
