The critically acclaimed oil painting artist, Katy Jade Dobson, who is internationally renowned for her wildlife portraits, will visit Nottingham next month (July 8th-16th), with a solo exhibition at George Thornton Art in the recently refurbished Flying Horse Walk Shopping Arcade.
Based in Lincoln, Katy is one of the UK’s bestselling fine artists. As a published oil painter represented by leading art house ‘Wishbone Publishing’, Katy has exhibited and been collected internationally and is unanimously recognised as one of the most collectable young contemporary artists in Britain.
Katy is also a passionate animal welfare supporter, which is clearly evidenced in her work which shows a love and understanding of her medium and subject and her partnership with the Born Free Foundation.
Gallery owner George Thornton said:
“I am incredibly excited and proud to have Katy bringing her collection to the gallery. Katy has a two year waiting list for commissions so is in huge demand and we will be displaying a wide range of her original work during this week, as well as a body of highly collectable limited edition prints”.
“Katy is inspired by the work of French artist Odilon Redon and brings a lavish quality to the animals that she depicts on canvas. Brush strokes, scratches and the sheer exuberance of the laying on of paint make her exciting representations of noble beasts a real pleasure to behold”.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for fine art fans across the region to meet an international star and a wonderful chance to learn more about how she paints. We are also proud to be playing our own small part in this great cause helping Katy and “Wishbone Publishing” to raise awareness of the Born Free Foundation during Katy’s exhibition.”
Speaking ahead of her visit to Nottingham, Katy said;
“It is fantastic to be exhibiting in Nottingham with George Thornton Art and wonderful to hear that he will be helping us all to raise much needed funds for this fantastic charity.
“The Born Free Foundation works to end suffering and protect species in the wild by providing rescue and care, freeing animals from appalling conditions and misery as well as conservation efforts. They are a wonderful and dedicated charity that I am hugely proud to have my work endorsed by, and hopefully raise money for a great cause.”
George Thornton Art is a Nottingham based art gallery dealing in original works of art and sculpture by established local artists and international modern masters.
