Monica Groves – Spirit of Place
Born in London of Irish extraction, Monica lives and works in Pembrokeshire.
Having spent many years sailing in Celtic waters she feels challenged to paint the beauty, history and culture of these areas, especially the Pembrokeshire coastline where she lives, concentrating on the essence of location rather than the scenery itself. Her painting is intuitive, focusing on the interaction of colour and attempts to define a spirit of place among the stones, springs, mountains, islands, trees and holy places within a Celtic landscape.
The exhibition was opened on Friday May 25th by David Lewis, author and publisher of Pembrokeshire Art. Pictured are David Lewis, the artist and Dr. Michael Brew, Vice-Chairman, Tenby Museum & Art Gallery.
There will be a Meet the Artist day on Friday 8th June from 10:30 to 13:30.
