Long distance walks inspire original and quirky work
THE MARLE GALLERY
Described as an "up and coming artist" by The Marle Gallery in Axminster, local artist Angus Rutherford has proved those words true – with more than half of his work sold on the opening day of the gallery's two-man exhibition he is sharing with Emma Forester.
The Marle owner Nick Broomfield was delighted but unsurprised.
"I loved Angus' work as soon as I first saw it. It is highly original, free and slightly quirky with a core skill of drawing underpinning his technique," he says.

"Angus is a great long-distance walker and his work depicts the scenes he has encountered on his travels around Lyme Regis and West Dorset.
"We encouraged him to put a body of work together and it's been a real delight to see it so well received."
"There may be a lot of hype in the art world, but I really think Angus is a name to watch."
The exhibition runs until March 30. The gallery is open Tuesday until Saturday, 10am-5pm.
