YES Arts Festival 2015 - full program available here
Landscapes and Seascapes Exhibition (by Patricia Sadler and Helen Tabor)
Wednesday 9th to Saturday 19th September, 11am to 4pm
Based in the Scottish Borders, Patricia Sadler draws inspiration from the land and seascapes of Northumberland, the Scottish Borders, Scotland’s west coast and the Hebridean isles. She paints in a free and fluid style using watercolour, acrylic and mixed media, always searching for an emotional response which leads the mind beyond what the eye perceives. Patricia’s work is widely collected, and has feature in both solo and group exhibitions throughout the UK.
Helen Tabor is a painter who lives and works in the Borders. Born in Middlesex, Helen studied English and History at York University, then spent a number of years teaching in the UK and in the Himalayas before settling in Scotland in 1992. Since then she has concentrated on her career as a painter (as well as rearing three children), exhibiting widely in the UK, Germany and Denmark. All her work is oil on canvas or board, with subject matter varying according to what she finds inspiring at the time – usually landscapes, seascapes, and images from her travels.
