Kooroon Gallery presents Lynda Taylor exhibition & workshop

11am to 4pm on Friday 4th, Saturday 5th, Friday 11th & Saturday 12th June. Free Entry.

Workshop 1pm to 3pm Saturday 12th June £20.

Kooroon Gallery fills our 3 exhibition spaces with sumptuous paintings by Lincoln based abstract artist Lynda Taylor.

Inspired by everything around her, Linda sees things in everyday life and incorporates it into her paintings. Vibrant colour always plays a big part in her life and always in her paintings making them fun, jolly and whimsical.

Abstract art is about a feeling or a thought rather than painting some thing. It is varied and captivates in an individual way.  Lynda rarely begins with and exact plan. Intuition always takes over and she paints what she feels in the moment trusting her inner wisdom and then the magic happens. Vibrant colour always plays a big part in her life and always in her paintings making them fun jolly and whimsical.  Her chosen medium is Acrylics but always with a dash of something else.

There will be over 30 paintings on display, from small to large including some very large works all to view and buy.

WORKSHOP

Ticket to Joy: On Saturday 12 June, starting at 1pm until 3pm, Lynda will be running a paint along style workshop where you can copy her lead and create your own abstract artwork.  Come and have fun with abstract expression. Cost is £20 and booking is via Glenda Gibson of Kooroon Gallery.  glendagibson@live.com
