Nestled in the heart of Durrington, the garage-turned-gallery will open its doors for two weeks, inviting art enthusiasts and casual observers alike to immerse themselves in a world where art and family intersect.

This exhibition, part of the Plain Arts, Salisbury art trail, not only highlights the individual styles of Marja and Samantha but also celebrates their collaboration as artists and family.

Live Demonstrations: Art in Action

One of the highlights of the exhibition is the opportunity to see Marja and Samantha in action. Visitors will have the rare chance to observe the artists as they create new pieces, offering insights into their creative processes and techniques. This interactive experience not only demystifies the act of painting but also allows for a deeper connection between the artists and the audience.

About the Artists

Marja Brown,

the matriarch, draws inspiration from the stunning landscapes surrounding their home. Her portfolio features a captivating collection of local landscapes and abstract interpretations that evoke a sense of tranquility and wonder. Marja’s work invites viewers to explore the beauty of nature through her eyes, offering a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Samantha Biddle

on the other hand, brings a different but equally mesmerising perspective to the exhibition. Specialising in pet portraits and abstract realism, Samantha’s creations put animals at the forefront, capturing their essence and individuality with striking detail and vibrant colours. Her work not only showcases her technical skill but also her deep appreciation for the animal kingdom.

The gallery in the garage is more than just an exhibition; it’s an invitation to engage in meaningful conversations about art, inspiration, and the unique bond between a mother and daughter. Guests are encouraged to chat with Marja and Samantha about their work, their journey as artists, and the stories behind their creations.
