For Immediate Release




The Gorstella Gallery in Chester is exhibiting new and exciting work by Matthew Snowden.

Matthew Snowden’s evocative palette knife paintings are well represented in his fourth solo

show at Gorstella Gallery. Using copious amounts of paint and a pallet knife, Matthew

Snowden produces work that is both striking and contemporary capturing the raw beauty

and variety of the British coastline.

Using the rugged Celtic coasts and their ancient history, the ever changing light and weather

as his core inspiration, Matthew Snowden has created a body of work that captures this

infinite variety beautifully.

From the golden beaches of the Outer Hebrides, to the wild Atlantic Ocean, via the majestic

Welsh mountains, this exhibition is an amazing tribute to the skill of the palette knife artist,

and our spectacular coast line.

Matthew Snowden has become one of the most original and sought after landscape artists

working today.

Gorstella Gallery was established in November 1990 by Peter and Klazien Bullivant, with the

ongoing objective of bringing high quality, original, affordable British art to the North West.

The gallery is now run by their daughter Bridget and her husband Stephen. All at Gorstella

Gallery are excited to celebrate their 30th Anniversary in 2020.

The space at Gorstella Gallery was created from some converted cow shippons adjoining

their home in Dodleston, 5 miles from the centre of historic Chester.

Artists include both established names and emerging local talent. Artists that have exhibited

include the late Sir Kyffin Williams RA, and the late Donald McIntyre, Pamela Kay RWS,

Victoria Crowe OBE, Jenny Wheatley RWS, Matthew Snowden, Andrew Hood, Jonathan

Cramp RWS and Annie Williams RWS. In addition, some 30 other Members of the RWS and

RCA have exhibited.

Each Exhibition displays a wide variety of styles and subject matter, so that hopefully every

visitor will find something to his or her taste. Gorstella Gallery is anxious to spread the range

of artists exhibiting, whilst at the same time, maintaining the policy of showing high quality

work that would not be readily available to customers without travelling some distance.
