Pictures From Home and Away

New landscapes, seascapes, abstract and textiles designs by Peter Coates

Courtyard Gallery

Town Mill

Lyme Regis DT7 3PU

19th to 30th October 2021

10.30 – 4.30pm


Peter’s latest exhibition features landscapes and seascapes ranging from the Dorset and Devon coast to the hills of Provence and the plains of the Alentejo in Portugal. The majority of the twenty or so pictures have been painted this year. That’s not to say Peter has been travelling all that time. Peter always travels with a sketch book and the vibrant, warm scenes he creates are a combination of sketches made ‘en plain air’ and photographs taken at the time.

Nearly all the paintings in the exhibition are oil on canvas. He’ll also be showing some abstract paintings for the first time; and although they’re a new departure they are still inspired by the rich colours of the mediterranean where Peter lived for several years. There will also be some new abstract designs drawn on an Ipad, available as prints and some of them applied to cushions and interior accessories.

Peter is hoping the Courtyard Gallery will be a lucky space the fourth time around as the previous three exhibitions were near sell outs!

Why not come and meet Peter who’ll be stewarding his exhibition each day from 10.30 until 4.30pm.
