AN EXHIBITION by a Rhodesian-born artist will kick off a busy month at The Lloyd Gill Gallery in Weston.

Until Monday the Beaconsfield Road gallery will feature the exhibition entitled Exposure, which will contain the work of Tim Warren, before it then hosts The Future Of Contemporary Art 2012 exhibition later this month.

That exhibition will feature the work of several artists, such as Letitia Watson, Karuna Clayton and Joe Walker.

Fifty-year-old Warren was born and brought up in Rhodesia – now Zimbabwe – and started painting at the age of 31.

His great-grandfather was a friend of the French sculptor Rodin, and commissioned his famous work The Kiss.

His exhibition will feature 21 of his paintings, including his own work called The Kiss.

Now in its fifth year, The Future Of Contemporary Art will bring together many of the best fine art graduates from across the UK and feature paintings, sculptures, mixed media and photography.

Among the artists to be featured are Letitia Watson’s fresh take on art based on nature, Karuna Clayton’s mixed media photographs and Joe Walker’s abstract works.

The exhibition will run from August 20 to September 14.

The gallery is open from 10am-4.30pm every Monday to Friday.
