Pete Gilbert & Hugh Lohan : ArtCare Open winners exhibition

27 September – 11 November 2018
Level 3 Plastic Outpatients corridor, Salisbury District Hospital

Down at the River, painting by Pete Gilbert

Artist Pete Gilbert and photographer Hugh Lohan have collaborated on several projects and regularly exhibit together and they also have both won ArtCare’s Open Exhibition in past years. Pete’s paintings are inspired by his New Forest home and the Test River valley. They express the seasons and the many different moods that the river delivers. Soft mists and sharp reflections, reedy water meadows and lazy willows are all represented in his colourful landscapes.

Tuscany - black and white photo by Hugh Lohan

Hugh Lohan also shows work from the New Forest area and river estuaries, as well as a retrospective selection of black and white photographs documenting some of his travels across the world, ranging from Tuscan landscapes to Iranian camel trains.

Fox - maltese limestone sculpture by Moira Ross

Moira’s exhibition here coincides with her staff arts workshops during October and November. Staff have been learning sculpting techniques and having a go at creating their own piece using rasps, rifflers and sandpapers. Moira gained her HND in Fine Art in 2006 at Salisbury College. Since then she has furthered her training through attending workshops. This led her to find her true artistic love, stone carving. She is currently exploring adding colour through different materials, including found objects, to her stone sculpture. Moira works from her studio in Salisbury and is a member of Sarum Artists, which regularly exhibits in Salisbury and Dorset. Download catalogue of works on display with prices (pdf) >

Echo by Charlotte Moreton

Echo has been loaned to ArtCare by the artist Charlotte Moreton for display at Salisbury District Hospital. Charlotte Moreton trained at the Frink School of Figurative Sculpture (1999-2001) and combines sculpture and teaching with nature conservation work. Her sculpture is greatly influenced by trees and nature and "her immense sensitivity to people and the environment has given her a flying start in her career as a sculptor" (Rosemary Barnett, Director of the Frink School).
