Brighton’s oldest independent Fine Arts gallery, Two Kats and a Cow, begins their Spring exhibition this month. It’ll feature a dynamic new collection of contemporary oil paintings from the much-loved local trio – Katty McMurray (below), Kathryn Matthews (above) and John Marshall (bottom).
McMurray’s trademark minimal yet highly evocative style coolly captures the subtleties of city culture in her highly-anticipated Copenhagen collection. Matthews’ flares of uncompromising colour and exuberant palettes do not disappoint, as she presents a fresh perspective on Brighton & Hove; and Marshall’s new works exude charisma and playful insight through the introduction of eight new cows in a variety of staggering sizes.
There’s also work from some of the UK’s best independent makers and designers, including fast rising talent like Kinska, Lucy Kirk, Skratch Ceramics, Silver Spur and Fleur de Carotte. There is also celebrated work from Charlotte Miller, Catherine McLeod, Helaina Sharpley, Rowena Brown, Marion Brandis, Cara Tonkin, Peculiar Vintage, Lady Muck, Little Object, Laila Smith, Kit Anderson, Buddug, Louise Vaessen Walker, Phoebe Jewellery and the incredible silk screen printers, Artizan Editions.
The Two Kats and a Cow Gallery is at 167 Kings Road Arches, Brighton BN1 1NB
