LOCAL artist Connie Vickers is set to showcase her solo art exhibition, "Nature: Through My Eyes" at RHS Rosemoor's Peter Buckley Learning Centre Exhibition Room starting on Good Friday, March 29 until Sunday, April 28.

With free entry to the exhibit, it is open every day during RHS Rosemoor open hours (10am to 5pm) and promises to captivate visitors with Vickers' unique interpretation of nature.

Inspired by the stunning countryside surrounding her and enjoying taking walks in the woodlands and gardens of Rosemoor and its partner Clovelly Court Gardens, Vickers' artworks beautifully capture the colours, patterns and textures found on these outings.

Vickers is no stranger to the art scene, having exhibited regularly in recent years, with the Westward Ho! and Bideford Art Society at the Burton Art Gallery in Bideford.

Before returning to live in Devon in 2016 she has exhibited with the Highworth Artists' Society in Wiltshire and the Pure Watercolour Society in Oxfordshire.

Her portrait drawing for the NHS Heroes initiative, created during the Covid-19 lockdown, was selected for the permanent Google Healthcare Heroes online exhibit.

She has also showcased and sold work with the Bath Society of Artists at the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath, Somerset in 2023.

Offering a refreshing perspective with her paintings, Connie aims to provide a sense of calm and escapism from the stresses of modern life. Whether you are an art lover or simply someone who appreciates the beauty of nature, Vickers' artwork is sure to leave a lasting impression.
