Opening Drinks: Friday 29th September, 6 - 8pm
Mary Pym and The Wykeham Gallery have had a long and successful association over many years. This, however, is the first solo show that we are now fortunate enough to be hosting. What is more, it is the largest body of Mary's work ever to be hung together. With a massive local and national following we expect immediate demand for these pictures - all paintings are now for sale.
Born in The Hague, Holland in 1935, Mary Pym studied at Winchester College of Art from 1954-58. Her first solo exhibition was in Southampton in 1965. She completed her four-year Post Graduate Experimental Painting Course at Southampton College of Art in 1978 and in 1985 Mary Pym became a part time art teacher. Mary paints in oils and her colourful, individual and easily recognisable style falls between the representative and the abstract. Her vibrant, yet subtle colours often arranged in geometric relationships with each other, create uncluttered landscapes whose lonely beauty is skilfully depicted.
