The Lighthouse Gallery


Solo Show: The Golden Hours

November 13th – November 27th

Preview Saturday 13th November 2 – 4pm

A series of new paintings celebrating the magical transitions from sunset to twilight and dawn to sunrise.

The exhibition will feature paintings from my latest book The Bee and The Sun (publication 25 November 2021: Zephyr) a calendar of herbs and bees and sun-drenched landscapes.  My deep love for the cycles of the seasons inspires all my paintings and this book is a celebration of the profound importance of the bee as a pollinator in our world.   Signed copies of the book will be available to purchase and I can personally dedicate and sign copies.

‘Catherine Hyde follows the journey of the bee and the sun in a calendar of glorious paintings that celebrate the sensory delights of herbs, seasoned with bee and plant lore. From the rising and setting of the Pleiades, from sunrise to sunset, the bee and the sun work in harmony, a miracle of nature, growth and new life. Beneath the shifting constellations, equinoxes and solstice markers, as the bee progresses from plant to flower, acclaimed artist Catherine Hyde pays tribute to the magic and mystery of nature.  Snippets of ancient bee beliefs and plant folklore are complemented by paintings of wild thyme, saffron, meadowsweet, basil, mallow, lavender and many more delights. A book to treasure, and an ode to the wonder of nature.’
