Please come and join us for a glass of bubbly from 9.30am to 9.00pm on Wednesday 1st April for our new show: Between Land and Sea
From the Highlands of Scotland to the Southern Coast , from Dungeness to Penzance and across the water to Skye, we celebrate our land and sea.
Five Scottish jewellers recently showcased at the prestigious Goldsmiths Fair: Grace Girvan, Scarlett Cohen French, Stacey Bentley, Heather McDermott and Elizabeth Jane Campbell.
Paul Wadsworth delights in painting the Cornish landscape: where rugged, wild and vibrant swathes of paint sweep across the canvas capturing a moment in time at a favourite location.
Jess Davies makes relief print images around what might be called called ‘interruptions’; she looks to edges, boundaries, and traces left by humankind, especially on the land.
Leila Godden's paintings resonate a strong connection with the sea: the vast panorama of changing light, dramatic weather and powerful water, framed by rocks solid with history, yet transient with time and the rhythm of the earth.
Paul Evans will be bringing a selection of his local seascapes.
New in ceramics are Hilary Mayo, "details in the landscape catch her eye; peeling paint, a mark on the wall, a crumbling feature...fragments that tell a story", Olivia McGill, "whose gestural brushstrokes are dictated by the shape of the porcelain pot", and Jill Ford, "work which mirrors the seasons, both in the processes she uses as well as the changing nature of her landscape".
And finally we have the amazing sculptures created by Teresa Martin with help from her daughter, reflecting the colours, shape and textures reminiscent of the coast.
The exhibition continues until 27th June. Here's a taster...
