SHIRLEY TREVENA RI - Succesful Exhibition at The Rutland Gallery

Art enthusiasts were in for a treat this June. The Rutland Gallery in Uppingham proudly presented an exhibition by the internationally acclaimed British watercolour artist, Shirley Trevena RI. From June 1st to Saturday, June 29th, visitors had the opportunity to immerse themselves in Shirley Trevena's vibrant and captivating world of watercolours.

Shirley Trevena RI, a distinguished member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI), is renowned for her innovative approach to watercolour painting. With a career spanning over five decades, Trevena has established herself as a master of the medium, pushing the boundaries of traditional watercolour techniques to create dynamic and expressive works of art.

Gallery owner, John Jolley, said that he was delighted with the response to the exhibition. One of Shirley Trevena's most distinctive traits is her fearless experimentation with colour and form. Her paintings pulsate with energy, as bold hues collide and dance across the canvas in a symphony of light and shadow. But it is not just her use of colour that sets Trevena apart, as she has a remarkable knack for distilling complex scenes into their most essential elements, creating images that resonate with emotion and intrigue.

With her fearless experimentation, masterful technique, and boundless creativity, Trevena continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in watercolour painting.
