Return to the Wild

Return to the Wild


Mill Lane,
Lyme Regis,


Following a successful exhibition in 2014, five established local artists will be inviting visitors to indulge in a ‘Return to the Wild’, an uplifting showcase of their latest nature-inspired paintings, ceramics, photographs and sculptures that runs at The Town Mill’s Malthouse Gallery, Lyme Regis, from 6-19 October.

Mervyn West is a photographer who creates large abstract images, mainly on canvas, that range from hairy spiders and inquisitive ostriches to a large Frenchman playing boules. Elizabeth Wilson blends representation and personal interpretation in sea and landscapes that express the mood and feeling of a place at a particular time. Working predominantly in oils, she also paints still lifes. Toni West has produced a series of playful sculptures of dogs in bronze resin that capture their spirit, movement and energy. Drawing inspiration from her strong love of nature, ceramicist Linda Bristow creates hand-built flower sculptures using earthenware clay and decorated in coloured slips and oxides and constructs wall panels by pressing wild flowers into clay. Trisha Hayman is a natural history watercolourist. Her fine art paintings show off the splendor of the natural world in exquisite detail.
