Top UK artist Stephen John Bishop is making a welcome return to Swanage's Quarr Gallery for a special Easter week Exhibition. This exhibition will feature new oil paintings inspired by working directly from nature in the Isle of Purbeck over the autumn and winter months. This will be the first opportunity for the public to view many of the paintings, some are as freshly painted as spring 2007. This is a really exciting opportunity to view and purchase this increasingly popular artist's latest work.

Stephen John Bishop has several exhibitions scheduled for 2007 and 2008, building on the success in 2006 with well received exhibitions in Dorset and in London. Galleries are increasingly seeking to show his work.

Stephen stated, " I never try to be an artist who produces art which will be "easily" liked; instead I delve deeper into my own creativity and constantly strive to "listen" more intensely to nature's voice. My relationship working directly from nature is what moves me as a human being and motivates me an artist".

Visitors to the gallery will be amply rewarded as this talented artist's work is always interesting and powerful, coming from an intense and demanding working method.

His exhibition "Winter Sun", runs from Friday 6th April - Monday 16th September,
Open 1 - 6 pm. at The Quarr Gallery, 17 High Street, Swanage. Tel: 01929 475719.
