Yesterday evening, my wife Jane and I attended the opening of Trudie Shannon’s new art exhibition, entitled Changing Rhythms, at St James Assembly Hall in St Peter Port.
The exhibition, which boasts nearly fifty images, is an extravaganza of colour interspersed with a number of Trudie’s amazingly intricate black and white images.
Alongside the paintings you’ll find a number of remarkable poems that complement or illuminate the pictures.
Many of the vibrant images you’ll see here appear in a new book, launched in tandem with the Exhibition, called Beside the Water.
Also on display is a beautiful embroidery exhibit which is for sale to raise funds for a local charity, Les Bourgs Hospice, in memory of Trudie’s beloved Aunty Edna, who spent her final months there.
I am the artist, the poet, you are the viewer, the reader. I offer you both words and images to continue the creative journey that has begun here ...
The exhibition runs until 10th October and it's well worth a visit.
Trudie's book, Beside the Water, is available in Guernsey for £6.99.
