Encountering Beauty

5th September 2017 - 1st October 2017


Description

Meg Stevens, who died in 2012, had a long association with Nature in Art and has work in the permanant collection of the museum. We also displayed her work in two special exhibition during her life.

Since her death, the work she left behind has been catalogued and we are privileged to be able to exhibit just a small number of these works for this exhibition, the majority of the works being displayed have not been shown at Nature in Art, or in some cases anywhere, before.

Almost all of Stevens' pictures were painted within three miles of her home, near Brecon. For twenty-five years she would set out on most days each week with a small easel, folding stool, rucksack of oil paints and a piece of primed hardboard.She had soon taught herself to use brush and oils with speed and acuaracy, thanks to the training of hand and eye through life drawing at art school many years before, when wood engraving and illistration were her main interests.

Stevens had no interest in attempting 'finished' studio work. This perhaps expliains why her paintings are so atmospheric.

Don't miss this display of artwork by a unique and much missed painter.
