From the City to the Sea is an exhibition of work at the Brook Gallery, Budleigh Salterton, by two very different London-based artists.

Louise Davies and Gail Brodholt are friends who have shared a studio in the capital for 11 years. Both are members of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers.

They will be at the gallery to launch the show on Friday, November 30.

Louise is a printmaker and painter who produces colourful outdoor scenes, mainly of the countryside. Gail is a painter and linocut printmaker who is inspired by the urban environment, particularly the London transport network.

Their approach to their art is very different, with Gail meticulously spending hours drawing and carving the lino for a structured figurative representation, while Louise has a looser and more intuitive style. Both aim to engage the audience to stand back and be drawn into the works with the use of perspective.

Their exhibition opens on Saturday, December 1 and runs until Friday, January 4.
