In 2010 the Silk Mill hosted an exhibition of work by major Somerset artist, Kay Lewis-Bell. Kay is a gifted colourist whose style and palette are instantly recognisable. Her figurative paintings are executed in a direct, fresh style often inspired by fleeting glances and unexpected meetings. Kay exhibited all new work based on people in and around Frome’s Catherine Hill.The Silk Mill was very fortunate to have this opportunity to bring Kay’s delightful canvases to the Festival.
At this exhibition three paintings and numerous prints were sold. A steady stream of visitors that poured in during the fortnight appreciated the work very much.
A writer in residence spent a happy day creating at the Mill.
