Exhibitions - Winter 2019
Jane Hewlett and Kate Martin – 17th to 23rd October
Based in Suffolk Jane paints from her studio overlooking the river Deben in Woodbridge. An integral aspect of her work is the texture which she creates by applying to the boards (on which she paints) up to 7 layers of her hand made rabbit skin gesso. This enables her to produce a distinctive impasto and wonderfully textured surface on which to paint, thus giving the colours a special clarity and warmth. The bases of her paintings are created from her plain-air sketches in watercolour which are then abstracted and reduced to their essential structures and colours.
Cindy Lee Wright and Jane Rands – 24th to 30th October
Following on from their successful show in June, Cindy Lee Wright and Jane Rands are back with their pre-Christmas show. From 3d artwork cut from wood, to delicate watercolours on aged linen. From the twelve days of Christmas to Aldeburgh beach scenes and of course, for them both, a celebration of our precious wildlife in wood, linen, paint and paper.
Mexican Art – 31st October to 13th November
Inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead, with paintings of Mexico by Karen Cooley, prints by Vicky Johnson, cushions, ceramics, bed-linens, jewellery, original Huichol embroidered art works and figures, furniture and cacti. This is an exciting and colourful show to brighten up your winter days.
