The Summer Exhibition brings coastal seascapes to the Herefordshire countryside, ‘Sunlight on the Garden’’ will feature an exciting collection of work by talented British contemporary artists and makers, some of which will be new to the gallery.
This exhibition promises, once again, to inspire and entice collectors and appreciators of fine art and quality craft.
Returning by popular demand will be artist Sue Hayden who will be showing a new collection of striking seascapes and landscapes in acrylic and charcoal. Excited by the relationship between texture, shape, light and space, she paints with acrylic and pastels in a layered technique, creating a collage effect, adding energy and randomness to her work.
New to the gallery is fine art printmaker Suzie Thompson who works with collagraph, drypoint & relief printing processes to create limited edition prints inspired by the accessible open countryside of her local surroundings, British wildlife and flora.
In his workshop on the Shropshire Borders, Ralph Jandrell makes a unique range of widely collectable handmade ceramics, decorated with his own designs inspired mainly by plant life. Each pot is either thrown or cast from a thrown original, and hand painted with liquid clay slips.
With a focus on simplicity in natural forms, each piece of Elizabeth Terzza’s jewellery is carefully hand-crafted in her Herefordshire studio. Her deft creations perfectly reflect the loveliness that inspires her. They are a refreshing and elegant mix of subtlety and statement: archetypal forms that celebrate the beauty of nature.
We will also be showing the last few limited edition etchings from artist Anna Ravenscroft before she moves on to explore new artistic directions…watch this space…
There will also be a new collection of Mary Rose Young ceramics which will bring joy to collectors of her work, with her customary exuberant roses and gleaming lustre.
Our aim from the beginning has been to promote the work of British contemporary artists and makers, some already well known in their field and many talented new comers. Now in our 30th year, this continues as strongly as ever. The exhibition will continue until the end of August 2019
