Phillip Butters Art Exhibition at Basils Farm.
Basils Farm has a new collection of paintings on display in the Cafe and Pavilion. Local artist Phillip Butters has adorned our walls with his stunning artworks. His current series of paintings demonstrates “monochromatic misty, seascapes, landscapes and cityscapes. Working with the ethereal quiet of foggy days and exploring a ‘less is more’ technique to encourage the person viewing the painting to bring their own thoughts and perceptions to the experience”.
