Culture House art exhibition opens Monday 22nd May - Sara Allan PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 17 May 2017

Sara Allan artistThe Kalkan Culture House is embarking upon a new season of exhibitions, starting on Monday 22nd May with Köyceğiz based artist Sara Allan.

Sara was born in Hayling Island in 1951.  She spent much of her childhood delighting in nature.  Her need to paint, to find herself through painting, resulted from the years she spent as a shepherd in the mountains of Scotland and on the chalk downlands of Salisbury Plain.

Before finding her own vision, her apprenticeship was spent as a still-life artist, a genre exercising her need for discipline and method.  Sara has exhibited regularly in London for many years.

"From a tangle of lines, executed at great speed, offering no hint of the finished form, she then applies brilliant and surprising colour, using the lines as a form of scaffolding. She used pure colour. She favours large canvasses. What is truly surprising is the certainty, the feeling, as in nature, that each picture is inevitable, true, complete in itself. Her art flows out of her, vibrant, quivering with energy."  George Melly, 2002.

What more can we say except that Sara has lived for several years amidst the rural beauty of Turkey close to the village of Köyceğiz on the green waters of the Dalyan Delta.

For her first show in Turkey she has been persuaded to choose the Kalkan Culture House.  The opening night is Monday 22nd May, with the exhibition continuing until Friday 2nd June.  Canapes and light refreshments will be provided at 18.30.   We hope to see you there.
