'Towards Colaton Raleigh', by Laura Boyd
Since I mentioned sculptor Christine Lee's participation in the Devon Open Studios September event at http://budleighbrewsterunited.blogspot.com/2011/07/sculptor-christine-lees-work-on-view.html it's been pointed out that she's not the only artist in the village just a few miles north-east of Budleigh Salterton whose work will be on show.
Two further Colaton Raleigh artists will be opening their doors to the public this September.
Laura Boyd’s work was chosen for the leading page of the Devon Open Studios guide, as the organisers thought her work most represented the spirit of the organisation and Devon.
Trained at Harrow School of Art Laura became known originally for her etchings which sold all over the world. She specialises in landscapes, mainly local and flower paintings and taught a painting group at Age Concern in Exmouth for three years. Her work be on show at Oakdown, Shepherds Lane, in Colaton Raleigh. Follow the signs. Her studio will be open over the first three weekends in September, also on Thursday 8 and 15 September from 11.00 am to 6.00 pm. Click on http://www.laura-boyd.com/ for more details.
Cynthia Boult specialises in mainly landscapes in different media inspired by our natural surroundings. She is also a teacher. Her studio is at Sunnydale, Exmouth Road in Colaton Raleigh, and will also be open for the first three weekends in September as well as 6-8, and 14-15 September, from 11.00 am to 6.00 pm.
