Dorset potter Rosemarie James exhibits at the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum
The Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum heralds the return of an exhibition by Dorset potter, Rosemarie James. James is returning to exhibit her glazed ceramics - influenced by the Dorset coast - in the fitting venue of what was the original conservatory of the historic Russell-Cotes house, with its stunning ocean views, from Tuesday 29 April. Admission is free.
Rosemarie had a hugely successful exhibition at the same venue in 2006/07. The pieces exhibited may include vases, bowls, wall hangings and water features, all are made with care, skill and an eye for detail. Most of the pieces exhibited will be for sale.
The exhibition coincides with Dorset Art Weeks, 24 May – 8 June 2008.
James has sold and exhibited in Israel and France as well as at various locations in the UK. Her work has been bought by collectors from far and wide, and is influenced by art and culture ranging from Russian to Ancient American, from Art Nouveau to Hans Coper and Lucie Rie.
