What a remarkable achievement, for this is the nineteenth successive year that John has held a solo exhibition with us. During this time John has remained constant in his devotion to capturing in impressionistic style, the Cornish landscape and coastline. Every year, there has been a subtle progression in technique, bolder strokes and an ever growing range of subject matter. This exhibition of thirty paintings will be displayed on our website from Saturday 27th July and paintings will be available for sale from that date.

About the Artists

JOHN BRENTON was born in 1964 and grew up in the Cornish village of Nanpean. He was encouraged from an early age to develop his creative talents, which eventually led to an honours degree in creative arts from Manchester University. All his spare moments were directed to meeting the challenge of painting the awe-inspiring beauty of the Cornish coastline, sea, sky and seashore. These are the inspirational symbols of many painters, but John tries for that extra dimension of the given moment. He begins his work at the spot that fires his interest and works quickly to capture as much as is fleetingly possible. After more work in his studio he will return to the spot with his canvas to make the important final touches.
