An exhibition of work by Academician Dawn Sidoli.

Dawn studied at Northampton School of Art and took her B.Ed. at Manchester Training College. She exhibits annually with the RWA and was invited to give a solo show in the Fedden Gallery in 2000. She regularly shows at the Royal Academy in London, the Mall Galleries, the Royal Society of British Artists, the Royal Institute of Watercolour Painters, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the New English Art Club where she won the critics prize in 1988. 

Of her work, Dawn says: 'I concentrate on coastal scenes as our house overlooks the Bristol Channel. The mood is ever-changing and the place unspoilt... The best paintings come off when I'm tired and I've been painting for a long while. I paint on primed card propped on a large board, sitting in the passenger seat [of my Mini Cooper] with the paints on the driver's seat. I don't paint on beautiful days... it makes me shudder and think of chocolate boxes.' From an interview with David Parfitt for Clifton Arts Club.
