Some sweeping skylines and seascapes are coming to the Kent coast - in artistic form.
Two local artists have got together to create an exhibition of images of the picturesque area.
Wave photographer Ross Andrews and artist Darren Lewis will be staging their biggest show yet together in Margate in the run-up to the Turner Exhibition, which opens at the Turner Contemporary gallery later this month.
Their new exhibition, My Sky – His Sea, His Sky – My Sea, will also be a display of images, some of which will be for sale, while others will be just to view.
Their previous three exhibitions, including last year’s Thrills and Spills, attracted hundreds of visitors to see their work.
Having grown up on the coast, Ross has always been passionate about the sea and spends a lot of his time on the beach. He has fully immersed himself in this which shows in his art and photography. He captures the waves in full force and offers a new view of them that many of us don’t see. Some of his images have taken more than two years to capture, waiting for the perfect wave.
Darren works in traditional oils capturing the light, colour and luminosity of the local coastlines. He seeks out skies full of intense colour and vibrancy aiming to capture the movement of the air with a subtle play of colours across a canvas.His skies serve as a dramatic backdrop to his chosen locations while the sea provides reflections to the skies, particularly Margate Harbour in the winter seasons.
My Sky His Sea - My Sea His Sky is at the Pie Factory at 5-9 Broad Street in Margate from Friday, September 13 to Tuesday, September 24 and is free to enter. Find out more at piefactorymargate.co.uk
