The Independent Recommends: Visual Art

THE MATERIAL that an artist chooses to paint on, regardless of the artist, regardless of the time and place in which they work, might seem rather like a loose link between one painting and another, but Rosanna Wilson Stephens has used the theme of paint on panel as an excuse to assemble a delightful exhibition. In particular, there are three large and wonderfully stylish panels by Jacob Kramer (right) and an utterly beautiful little landscape sketch by Augustus John. The show only runs four days but is well worth seeing.

Wilson Stephens Fine Art, 11 Cavendish Road, London NW6 (0181-4509 0760) to 20 Jun.

It is appropriate that a touring exhibition of work by Mary Potter should start at the Aldeburgh Festival, for she lived in this seaside town for the last 30 years of her life, and it was here that her work shifted towards the sort of quiet, landscape-based abstraction for which she is best remembered. "Enchanting moments of heightened perception", in the words of Sir Kenneth Clarke.

Peter Pears Gallery, High St, Aldeburgh, Suffolk (01728 453543) to 28 Jun.
