About Artist Charles Knights: “Arriving in Bermuda a few years ago as the new violin teacher at the Menuhin Foundation, Charles Knights found himself signed up with the island’s flourishing Plein Air group within his first week. Charles has fine tuned his skills from advice given on these Sunday sessions and in particular from Chris Marson, his adopted guru. Since painting in Bermuda, his definition of a good painting is one with a palm tree in it. Many palms later and Charles has in the meantime painted the coastline of Alaska’s coastal wilderness, the Great Wall of China, and the wild flowers in Texas Hill Country. His summers are spent painting in Tuscany and South West France and he recently returned from a week of painting in and around Essouira, Morocco. He enjoys working plein air and rarely likes to spend more than 90 minutes on a water colour as after that time things start going wrong!”Read more: http://www.bsoa.bm/2011/09/watercolours-charles-knights/
About the Gallery: “There's always something new and different to see at The Bermuda Arts Centre at Dockyard. Exhibits of original artwork by local artists change every 6 weeks and reflect the diverse creativity of the art community in Bermuda which the Arts Centre seeks to nurture. The historic character of the building set in the destination of Dockyard at the far western tip of Bermuda belies the contemporary art housed within. "Themed" shows encourage local artists to expand their knowledge with different subject matter and a variety of media resulting in an eclectic range of artwork. From experimental textile wall hangings to traditional scenes in watercolour, something is bound to capture your interest and imagination.”Read more: http://www.artbermuda.bm/page3/page3.html
