SALLY McLaren is a modernist landscape painter and printmaker, who lives on the borders of Wiltshire and Dorset, and very close to Somerset, on the edge of Cranborne Chase.
The counties, each with a very different character, although linked by the distinctive chalk downland, inform her paintings, rather with a sense of place than a figurative representation.
An exhibition of new work, The Passage of Time, is on at The Art Stable at Gold Hill Organic Farm, Child Okeford, until 25th April, and can be viewed on the gallery’s website.
Sally trained at the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford, the Central School of Art, London and Atelier 17 in Paris and taught at Goldsmiths School of Art, London.
She has exhibited in the UK and abroad and her work is held in many museums and private collections throughout the world including the Victoria and Albert Museum , the New York Public Library, Cabo Frio Museum in Sao Paolo, Brazil, the Ashmolean Museum, the Scottish Arts Council, the Government Art Collection, the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, Sterling University Art Collection and Skopje Museum of Contemporary Art. She is a member of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers and the Printmakers Council.
