Views of Thanet & Beyond: Oil paintings by Gary Obee

Following a long and successful career in the retail motor sector, Gary retired in 2021. Finally he now had the time to take-up his passion for painting, Gary has always been keen to paint, especially in oils. He loves their versatility, consistency and at times the challenge of painting wet into wet. Recently Gary joined a local group of like-minded artists in Thanet. He enjoys the challenge of painting Plein Air each week through the Summer months. These sessions give him the inspiration to tackle more challenging subjects in his studio at home.

Gary's exhibition takes place alongside a display of contemporary original art by our resident group of local artists. Works include paintings, figurative and abstract. Photography - traditional and digital - is also represented. 3D work features too, with textiles, ceramics, jewellery, wood and metal sculptures. Prints, greetings cards and postcards are also available.

The galleria opens Mondays to Saturdays, 10am to 5pm. It is in the picturesque seaside town of Westgate-on-Sea in Thanet. The local area is a great venue for a day or weekend trip, in all seasons.
