Meditation on Reeds Exhibition, Patisserie, Lewes, until May 31.

LOCAL artist, Sarah Paget, has captured the essence and beauty of local nature spot, Arlington Reservoir, in a series of acrylic paintings which will be exhibited at Patisserie Lewes in Lewes until May 31.

The exhibition, entitled “Meditation on Reeds”, was inspired by South East Water’s reservoir near Polegate. With its outstanding scenery, Arlington Reservoir is an idyllic venue for anglers seeking a peaceful and productive day.

Sarah, commenting on her inspiration, said: “I was drawn to a particular reed bank at the reservoir, captured by their gentle rubbing sounds as they blew in the wind, and the way the different light over a period of several months would transform the reeds caught in the translucent light, generating an array of beautiful colours.”

The exhibition is the latest in a series by the artist who has spent several months sketching the reeds to capture the different seasonal atmospheres.

Sarah trained at Central St Martins College of Art and Design in London and since then has continued to draw and paint exhibiting in London and more locally.
