Allsop Gallery – Dialogues concerning the Land

Beverley Rouwen & Douglas Reeve

Painter Beverley Rouwen and ceramicist Douglas Reeve have collaborated to produce a 3D celebration of Britain’s landscape. Beverley’s uplifting and sharp responses to familiar scenes are heightened by Douglas’s collections of flowing forms and bold colours. The work reflects a continuous dialogue in their creative process.

The exhibition includes the latest works in Beverley Rouwen’s established Tree series re-imagining English woodlands. A second series exploring Kent’s hop gardens is complemented by recent interpretations of Dorset’s glorious vistas.

This collection of linked media opens new possibilities for artistic discourse. For more information: and
