Starting on Sunday the 3rd of August, an exhibition to remember the 100th Anniversary of the First World War.
The poppy came to represent the immeasurable sacrifices made by our great-grandparents, grandparents or even parents and quickly became a lasting memorial to those who died in World War One and later conflicts. Poppies seem to have a particular resonance in East Anglia where scarlet fields of the flowers were a common sight until the 1970s, often in close proximity to the airfields from which so many brave men flew in WWII, often never to return.
We will be exhibiting new works which hope to provoke remembrance, yet bring happiness through their uplifting colour and painterly skill.
Lime Tree Gallery will make a donation to the Royal British Legion for each painting sold.
Artists include Judith Bridgland, Michael G Clark PAI, Molly Garnier, Steven Lindsay, Sylvia Paul, Philip Richardson, Alexander Robb and David Smith RSW.
