Exploring the south coast through art

There are many different perspectives of England’s south coast. It is Britain’s first line of defence against would-be invaders, as well as the natural gateway to access the rest of the world and the first sight of Britain that many visitors from overseas will experience. It is not surprising that this region has inspired so much art and literature throughout the years. There is currently a unique opportunity to see how artists have come to see the south coast and reflect their thoughts and inspiration in their work.

The St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery in Lymington is presently hosting the Shorelines exhibition, which brings together the works of resident and visiting artists, as well as works by well known painters from across the years. Recognised works by Constable, Turner and Nash are on display alongside contemporary artists such as Jeremy Gardiner and Kurt Jackson. Whilst each work is unique, all are linked by the inspiration infused in the artists by their own individual experience of the south coast.

We understand exactly why so many people feel inspired to create works of art after paying a visit to the south coast, and if you’re planning to pay a visit to the Shoreline exhibition for yourself, you will need suitable accommodation to enjoy during your stay. Our bed and breakfast in Lymington is the ideal place to enjoy some rest and relaxation as you enjoy this exhibit, as well as all the other many attractions in the area.
