Spring will be celebrated at the Red Rag Gallery in Stow.

From April 10, the Spring into Summer show will present a mix of contemporary landscape artists who capture all the expectation, exhilaration and enthusiasm of this time of year in thrilling and thoughtful compositions that lift the spirits.

Reflecting the variety of the season, striking images of the Cornish countryside by John Piper contrast with wistful, reflective and atmospheric paintings of Tom Wanless; intimate, and emotive paintings of Mark Preston; dramatic imagery of Lesley McLaren and restful, gentle landscapes of Lynn Rodgie.

Gallery manager Carole Teagle said: “We are always excited when spring arrives, and this collection of paintings by some of our most talented landscape artists captures a real sense of hope and promise.”

The exhibition runs until Sunday, May 1. For more information call the gallery on 01451 832563 or visit redraggallery.co.uk.
