Artist in residence to exhibit at Nymans
Continuing its popular programme of exhibitions, the gallery at Nymans is entering its second year with a new exhibition by Kent-based artist Mariusz Kaldowski.
Full of light and atmosphere, Mariusz's impressions of Nymans gardens will be a delightful accompaniment to a stroll around Nymans.
Graduating in 1987 with an MA in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Mariusz is a painter, print maker and graphic designer. He has over 200 exhibitions to his name, from ones at the Barbican Centre to the Arndean Gallery in London’s Cork Street, and has been Artist in Residence for the National Trust in the South East since 2009.
During the summer of 2012 Mariusz spent time creating a series of paintings capturing the unique beauty of Nymans in his free flowing, Impressionist style.
His paintings have a varied subject matter - from the iconic vistas of the rose garden, summer borders and lime avenue to the secluded spots and hidden pathways that make Nymans such a special place.
His paintings are full of the light and atmosphere of the places he paints, and the endlessly varied palette of colours and plant textures at Nymans are perfectly expressed in his work of the garden.
The exhibition opens on 22 March and will be open daily from 10am until 4.30pm until the end of June (last admittance 4pm).
The exhibition gallery is above the house showrooms, accessed from the back of the house buildings (maps available from visitor reception on arrival).
Nymans garden is open 10am to 5pm, 7 days a week. House showrooms are open 11am - 3pm daily (access on Fridays is by ticketed timed tours only).
Mariusz's original artwork and a selection of greetings cards are both available to purchase.
