AN EXHIBITION of remarkable watercolours of donkeys, gypsies and market sellers by artist Sue Rubira is currently on show at the Armazém Regimental in Lagos.
Sue, MA Royal College of Art, specialised in illustration and her top quality work is on display in collections worldwide. She has won many awards including the Southampton City Art Gallery Portrait Award in 2004, where she currently runs a one-woman show.
She was short-listed for The Sunday Times Singer Friedlander watercolour exhibition, when her work of the interior of the old Lagos fish market was exhibited at various venues in the UK in 1995. The BBC commissioned Sue to do paintings for the QED and for the famous drama series, The Jewel and the Crown.
She teaches painting workshops and watercolour classes in the UK and taught art holidays at Luz Ocean Club in the Algarve for six years. She lived in Portugal for 11 years, where she met her Portuguese husband from Praia da Luz, and now lives in Chichester with him and their three children.
Also on show at the Armazém Regimental are paintings by Jill Parkinson, Gabriela Clark and Liz Lawson Pickles. Prints and cards are also for sale. The exhibition runs until April 15 and is open daily from 10am to 7pm.
