Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre is proud to welcome local contemporary artist Mary Rogers to the Muriel Barker Gallery.

Mary is awestruck by the natural world especially colour at sunrise and compelled to record what she sees.

Speaking about her work, Mary says;

“Someone said to me today ‘These paintings, they slap you in the face’. It’s true. I apologise. Though that’s not my intention. But when I sketch the sunrise, that’s my response too. It’s a visual assault! For a few earth shattering minutes I am locked in full concentration working rapidly before it disappears. Nothing else exists. It’s just me, some oil pastels, paper and this visual monster before me. This heartbreaking, sublime beauty of a sunrise”.

Mary was Artist In Residence at Spurn Point Lighthouse from 2010 to 2012, a time she describes as the best of her life. Many of the stunning paintings in this exhibition are from sketches created during that time.
