2023: Brenda Munson: Granite Island

Brenda Munson: Granite Island (poster)

3 May - 21 June 2023

"I love this island. I paint what Guernsey means to me."

Brenda Munson (1931-2003) was born in Guernsey. She was evacuated to Halifax during the German Occupation and returned to the island with a rekindled passion for the local landscape. In 1970 she set up the 'Studio Gallois' in Havelet, holding successful exhibitions both locally and overseas.

Brenda's work is highly distinctive and personal. She captured Guernsey's coastline and often chose unusual viewpoints of local architecture with an intense awareness of its beauty.

Guernsey Museum at Candie was delighted to exhibit artworks on loan from the George Webber collection alongside paintings from its permanent collection. George Webber (1931-2022) was a true patron of Brenda Munson's art. He encouraged Brenda, seeking out artworks reflecting her artistic career and displayed them in his home.See the island through the eyes of this popular artist.  Munson affectionately called Guernsey 'her granite island'.
