Browsing the brochure, choosing where to visit, what draws you, what pulls your eye? The artist only has a small  image and a few words to portray their individuality and say 'Hey, come visit me!'

For this post I thought I would feature the venues whose images of landscape swayed my gaze with their ability and skill to capture light.

VENUE 22 Christopher Richards: Working with richly layered and textured acrylics Christopher aims to capture within his landscapes the drama and mystery of the natural elements. An established artist since the 1970's you can visit Christopher at his studio in Minehead. 

VENUE 54 Camilla Clark: Visit Camilla in her West Monkton studio, where using watercolours, oils, and the collagraphic printing process, she captures the clean, crisp colours of Cornwall and the soft, muted tones of the Quantocks. 

VENUE 79 Jane Mackey: Jane's large studio houses an interesting selection of printing presses and was voted 'most favourite venue of 2013. Alongside her studio is a gallery area where her exhibition entitled 'A Celebration of the Somerset Countryside' will feature her original prints and paintings using traditional methods including woodcuts, screen prints, etchings, monotypes and oil paintings. Also to tempt you are the historic tea rooms and gardens which are open daily.

VENUE 103 Pauline Sayers: Pauline explores the transforming effects of light and colour in the Somerset landscape, capturing it with either her camera, brush or pastel - the results are quite atmospheric.

VENUE 172 Janet Westover, Patrice Hamilton & Brian Hutchings: The artists based at Yew Tree House are all inspired by the Somerset landscape. Here you will find a selection of painting, prints, drawing and photography. 

For the opening times of each venue do check the SAW 2014 Guide. If you haven't got yours yet they are available from tourist information centres, libraries and art venues throughout the region. You can also order a copy to be sent straight to your door by sending an A4 SAE (£1.17) to SAW LTD, Town Hall, Bow Street, Langport, Somerset TA10 9PR
