Two artists from Portishead have revealed they will be showcasing their work in Clevedon in November.

Sarah Souter and Liese Stanley will host a variety of their collaborative projects together at the Curzon cinema’s Oak Room in Old Church Road from November 1-19.

Visitors will also have the chance to buy some of the artists’ work on display throughout the three-week event.

A statement from Sarah and Liese, who are based in The Park, said: “Our aim is to bring interesting, finely produced art to a wide audience at a reasonable price.

“Our work takes a fresh look at architecture and landscape by spending time at a location and taking in detail. Later we recall the main visual memories and simplify the image to capture these.

“We have been working together for three years and throughout that time have produced more than 30 prints, mostly of the local area.

“One of our first prints was of the Curzon cinema and we are delighted to now be exhibiting there.”

The creative duo use a variety of techniques including sketching, photography and graphic design to create their prints and Susannah Shaw, new Curzon chief executive, says the work will be a good fit for the venue.

She said: “The Curzon Cinema and Arts sets out to present a wider range of cultural events than it has in the past and the lovely exhibition, with its striking and stylish interpretations of familiar scenes, sits well in our mission to expand the Curzon’s offer.”
