Landmarks are model images

PAINTINGS and photos by South Street Gallery’s resident artist can be seen there until 5 June.

Angela Chalmers is mostly known for figurative paintings.

More recently she has produced a series of photos focusing on Scarborough’s seaside landmarks.

Her photographic technique of selective soft focus creates a scene that becomes strangely model-like. 

She says: “I have focused on some of my favourite childhood memories - my photographs aim to playfully re-create a miniature and toy town environment”.

The exhibition also highlights new works by other gallery artists and includes painting, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture.
