A new exhibition of paintings by Christine McArthur opens today - Satuday 8 December - at Lemon Street Gallery, Truro.

A text in her catalogue, by Roger Billcliffe, observes:

"Still life has been the focus of Christine McArthur's painting for most of her career and this exhibition will not disappoint her many admirers. But since moving to Loch Long - a sea loch - in Argyll ten years ago, her paintings have become increasingly informed by landscape, the weather and her garden. Today a still life might be defined as much by the sky and the, sometimes seemingly interminable, rainclouds of the west of Scotland as by the confines of a kitchen or a studio. This has given her recent work a new breadth, a sense of airy openness where the shapes of her pots and flowers seem natural elements of her outdoor surroundings."

The exhibition continues until 14 January 2013.
