Award-winning painter Lucy Marks unveils her solo exhibition at Petworth House and Park from 3 July.
As audiences were impatiently waiting for museums to reopen their doors, Sussex-based artist Lucy Marks was painting away ahead of an ambitious solo show opening at Petworth House and Park this summer.
Starting on 3 July 2021, Marks will unveil a brand-new body of work – 50 paintings in oil and watercolour – inspired by the iconic National Trust site.
Nestled in the South Downs, Petworth House is best-known for its landscaped park and its fine art collection.
“The title of the exhibition, Dawn to Dusk, is a nod to Turner, who regularly visited and painted Petworth” Marks explains. “As a landscape painter I, too, wanted to capture the cycle of a day at Petworth. From its dreamy sunrises to its gentle and dramatic sunsets.”
Lovers of nature and culture will not want to miss this show, open in the Servants’ Quarters Gallery, Petworth House and Park, from 3 July to 19 September 2021. The works will also be available to view and purchase on Lucy Marks’ website.
