Summer Exhibition by Barbara Shields


The Naked Eye Gallery are pleased to be welcoming back award-winning Brighton based artist Barbara Shields in our upcoming Summer Exhibition.

Having spent the first 25 years of her life in Rajastan, India, Barbara was surrounded by vibrant colours. These bright and vivid colours resonated in her and remain the main source of her inspiration today. In the Summer Exhibition, Barbara will be showing her brilliant and intense still life paintings and landscapes. 

A professionally trained artist, she studied in Rhodes University School of Fine Art (South Africa), Brighton College of Art (Sussex) and the School of Art in Adelaide (Australia).  Her work is in private collections in these countries and also in the USA, Canada, Zimbabwe and Sweden. She draws her inspiration from renowned artists Morandi, Nicholas de Stael as well as the Scottish Colourists. 

Barbara works with oils, pastels and charcoal and hopes for nothing more than to inject colour and beauty into the homes of her customers.  

The Summer Exhibition runs at the Naked Eye Gallery, 5 Farm Mews, Farm Road, Hove, BN3 1GH between 1st-29th June.
