Pure Fine Art is back at the PowderMills Hotel, Battle this September bringing a bold, exciting and provocative Art Exhibition, showcasing selected artists working across an extensive range of media.

“This year’s submissions really reflect the sheer wealth and diversity of talent out there. I am delighted and proud that the show’s reputation attracts such high calibre artists.”

Dani Humberstone SWA, Member of the Society of Women Artists, invited artist and one of the panel of judges says,

“The selection process this year was particularly tough, with so many strong candidates. The show will give visitors the opportunity to view and buy some outstanding pieces of artwork, including video installation, drawings, painting, ceramics, photography, etchings and sculpture”

Carole Andrews FRBS, Red Vilosa
Carole Andrews FRBS, Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, headlines the 3D work with her stunning, oversized piece Red Vilosa. Carole is influenced by her deep interest in the natural world. “The rich patchwork of texture and form seen in the reef, together with the diversity of sea life inform my sculpture.” She employs the techniques associated with origami and embroidery using basic building materials to create engaging, oversized pieces that demand your attention.
