Stories without Words - a solo exhibition of recent work by artist Nicola Slattery RBA

ArtSpace 64 Thoroughfare, Woodbridge, Suffolk. Daily 10am to 6pm

Nicola Slattery is one of the leading visual artists in our region. A prolific member of the Royal Society of British Artists she has been described as possessing a “... mysterious, atmospheric style." (The Artist, January 2017) Her exhibition in Woodbridge at the end of July runs for just seven days at: ArtSpace - 64 Thoroughfare, Woodbridge, Suffolk. Nicola will be in attendance most days and available to discuss her work. “I normally sell most of my work through galleries in London and across the UK and rarely meet the buyers. Also working alone in a studio is a fairly solitary activity most of the time so it’s great to be able to spend a week meeting and listening to people responding directly to my work.”
Her paintings of imagined people and places act as catalysts for imagination to create stories in our mind. There is a still calmness and more than a little ambiguity about the characters that populate her paintings. The late Sister Wendy Beckett, nun, art critic, and television presenter, described Slattery’s work as: "... magical art, pure, humorous and strong". The art critic Nicholas Usherwood wrote in Galleries Magazine "..can hardly be bettered as expressions of a fertile imaginative fantasy". Take advantage of this rare and brief opportunity to see the latest work from an artist with a unique style and growing reputation.
