Artist Rebecca opens art studio and gallery at Libra Court, Sidmouth

SIDMOUTH artist Rebecca Greenwood has set up a new studio in the town centre for local artists to exhibit their work alongside hers.

Rebecca, who lives in High Street, officially opened Open Art Studio in Libra Court, on Monday.

Most of Rebecca’s work is abstract, nautical paintings, and she can be seen at the studio most afternoons after 1pm.

Exhibiting alongside her are fellow artists Jennifer Bennett, Matt Culmer, Neil Hampson and Derek Ratcliffe, as well as photographer Sam Rutherford.

“Derek does impressionist paintings, sea and landscapes from Sidmouth,” said Rebecca, who said all the artists were from the Sidmouth area.

The space is offered on a commission basis and, she added: “It is another nice space to have work in and hopefully to sell as well.”

Rebecca moved to the town from Beer last November and is pleased her new studio can act as a public gallery as well.
