For more than 40 years, the Loft Theatre has hosted artists who wish to exhibit their work in the lounge areas of the theatre.

All are welcome to view the exhibitions, free of charge, when the theatre is open to the public during the run of a Loft production.

Until December 2014 we are showcasing the work of Rugby-based artist Winifred Wilmot.

Winifred has been hooked on art since the day her primary school teacher put her first piece of work – a painting of a red boat – on the classroom wall. In her teens she attended the Rugby School of Art, and in 1990 she enrolled on a Foundation Course at the East Warwickshire College of Art: a wonderful experience, and one which helped to broaden the way she felt about her painting. During that time she became interested in 3D work, and achieved a National Diploma in Art & Design and also a Certificate in Advanced Ceramics. After leaving college Winifred shared a studio in Rugby with four other ex-students for five years, above the Rod Waspe Shop & Café.

In her earlier years Winifred’s paintings were mainly traditional landscapes, industrial scenes, animal portraits and floral pictures, but she has now moved on to the abstract, observing the patterns created by nature. She likes to use bold brush strokes without losing structure to create convincing, subtle and interesting compositions that are vibrant in both colour and strength.

She has received numerous awards and commendations for her work which has been widely exhibited including two solo exhibitions of paintings, ceramics and sculpture at the Rugby Library Gallery.
