The Lightbox gallery and museum is pleased to present ‘Taste of Art’, a display of work by local and regional artists. Changing monthly, the ‘Taste of Art’ features established artists, all noted for their quality of work. ‘Taste of Art’ strives to offer an exciting mix of paintings, original limited edition prints, textile and mixed media work.
All works on display are available to purchase from The Lightbox Gift Shop, where there is also a large selection of unframed work by the artists.
The current Taste of Art features the stunning photographs of Rachael Talibart and Jenifer Bunnett.
Rachael Talibart is a Surrey based photographer with a particular interest in landscape and nature. She has been published in books, magazines and online and has had success in the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition as well as more locally, winning Surrey Life magazine’s photography competition in 2013. Her work has been exhibited in the UK and abroad. Rachael is a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS) and a judge for the Surrey Photographic Association. She is co-founder of www.f11workshops.com, providing photography tours and workshops in Surrey and West Sussex.
Also based in Surrey, Jenifer Bunnett specialises in landscape, garden and flower photography. Her work is published in books, magazines and online. She has been a finalist and commended in the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition and this work has been exhibited around the UK and abroad. She has this year been shortlisted in the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.
Their mutual passion for photography is what brought the two artists together and they regularly scramble around the Surrey landscape, chasing the light. It has been interesting to see how different the results of their labour can be, even when at the same location, at the same time. Surrey is rarely included in a list of top places to photograph, not having crashing waves or soaring mountains for easy inspiration. Rachael and Jenifer have made it their mission to prove that the gentler hills and calmer waters of Surrey have a beauty that is all their own and their subtlety as engaging as any jagged cliff face.
All works on display will be for sale in The Lightbox Gift Shop.
