‘Shoreham Rocks!’ an Exhibition by Karolyn Mnich and Chris Hesketh

Featured Artists Exhibition at Shoreham Gallery for August 2022.
An exhibition of paintings, prints and ceramics by two established local artists.

Karolyn and Chris jointly decided to mount an exhibition to highlight Shoreham’s special beach and river.

Chris has worked with clay to produce a body of work made especially for the exhibition. Following many walks along the beach and river, taking photographs and sketching ideas, these have been translated into beach huts, ‘Bathing Belles’, fish, oyster catchers and lighthouses. All work is either Raku fired or stoneware in an electric kiln.

Karolyn’s work for the exhibition has been inspired after walking and making drawings in all weathers along the river and Shoreham Beach, in particular the rocks on the beach with glimpses of seabirds, cold-water swimmers, kite surfers and lively dogs with their walkers. Work includes paintings, prints and some experimental mixed media pieces.
