Enjoy an artist's island-inspired works at Ventnor Botanic Gardens

Island artist Daphne Ellman will be exhibiting a range of works inspired by her time on the Isle of Wight at the Ventnor Botanic Garden next month.

The Inspired by Wight exhibition will be running from August 10th to 27th and could be a great attraction for art lovers, families and simply those wishing to enjoy a fun day out to head along to.

"I started the Inspired by Wight exhibition with a couple of colleagues as most of my reference and inspiration comes from this beautiful island," commented Ms Ellman.

"The Ventnor Botanic Garden is just down the road from where I live and has a perfect visitor centre to exhibit in."

With an eye for gorgeous landscapes and wildlife scenes, Ms Ellman aims to capture the wonder of nature in many of her works and this is a key element of the pieces that will be on display as part of the exhibition.

She has painted scenes of the Isle of Wight and Hampshire throughout her career, working predominantly in acrylics. Some of the titles for her feature creations include Jersey Girls, Iris, Babbling Waters, Cows, High Tide (Ventnor) and On the Fence - all of which capture a moment in nature and preserve it on canvas for the viewer to enjoy.

Artists Suzanna Watts and Margaret Plant will also be exhibiting as part of the Inspired by Wight exhibition, with more than 60 paintings on display for garden visitors to enjoy.

Entry to the showcase is set to be free and the garden will be open daily from 10:00 to 17:00 BST.

Other attractions that will be taking place at the Ventnor Botanic Garden over the coming weeks include Flora and Fauna, exhibiting works from metal artist Alan Williams, ceramics from Francis Doherty, sculpture by Ptolemy Elrington and a number of other exciting installations throughout the garden.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801618068-ADNFCR
