Exhibitions - Autumn 2019
Ben Wardle – 29th August to 4th September
I have recently completed an MA in Fine Art, and during my studies I became interested in representing the relationship I have with my local rural environment and wild spaces with my landscapes. I am lucky enough to spend my working days on horseback exploring some of the most beautiful countryside East Anglia has to offer, and doing my degree pushed me to paint not only what I see when I am in these landscapes but also how I feel.
The potential use of the term ‘Anthropocene’ to label the next geological epoch fascinates me, as there are few parts of the world that the human hand hasn’t irreversibly damaged. Being in wild spaces has a tremendous effect on our mental health and this psychological/environmental link gives me a great source of creative inspiration.
Janie Pirie – 5th to 11th September
RHS gold medallist Janie Pirie will be showing many of her latest works and these will include a selection of the roses she has been working on for a new book, due for publication mid-October. This will be the first time they have been on show to the public. Her exquisite and detailed work has to be seen to be believed. www.janiepirie.co.uk
