Soul Journey

Rowan Day


Sunday 18th March 10am - 3pm

Monday 19th March to Friday 23rd March 10am - 4.45pm

Saturday 24th March 10am – 3pm


A vibrant and dramatic exhibition of landscape paintings by local artist Rowan Day. Promising to be full of colour, expression and movement. Rowan’s impressionistic style and her soft blending and brushwork, are a unique and delightful translation of the sky and landscape onto canvas.

Through a deep relationship to the sky, it’s weather and the Devon landscape, Rowan explores its changing moods, while surrendering to the weathers continually shifting quality, she aims to communicate the dramatic yet constant relationship between sky, land and sea. Her work reflects the mood and emotion evoked by her subject matter, through use of colour, movement and the compelling play between light and dark, beauty and chaos within the sky and its weather.

This exhibition is a culmination of Rowan’s artistic journey over the last eighteen months, her discovery of ‘self’ as an artist and her healing journey from chronic illness through her creative affinity to the sky and landscape.

Taking the viewer on a sumptuous journey through colourful sunsets or stormy skies, Rowan endeavours to move and inspire, while creating a connection to the wild and weather.
