Derek Chambers – 21st to 27 June

Heritage Trees. The Kelburn Weeping Larch. (Monoprint). Derek Chambers continues his journey with ancient trees. 

In 2004 I came across the book The Heritage Trees of Britain and Northern Ireland, published by the Tree Council, with photographs of over 80 special trees, scattered across the United Kingdom. I was drawn to these survivors – stalwart, resilient and beautiful. Their powerful images and stories haunted me. I came to realise that I had to see them for myself and in April 2015 I set off in a camper van to look for them.
Some were easy to access, such as the First Dawn Redwood in Cambridge Botanical Gardens and the Tolpuddle Martyrs’ Sycamore. Others were more of a challenge, like The Layered Beech in the dark woods of Kilravoch Castle and Ely’s London Plane in the private grounds of the former Bishop’s Palace. By the late summer of 2017 I had found all but four of the trees and my sketch books were bulging with watercolours and preparatory drawings. The emotional power of the great trees stayed with me in my Suffolk studio and I wanted to explore and share the experience. This exhibition of etchings and paintings represents my latest efforts in that direction.

Cindy Lee Wright and Jane Rands
– 28th June to 4th July

The exhibition is a celebration of our wild world and the glorious creatures we share the planet with. East Anglian cousins Cindy and Jane share this passion but their inspiration is expressed in quite different media. Cindy's images are cut, shaped and painted on the often underestimated material, plywood, Jane's are painted, stitched and hand crafted onto aged linen. 
From a wall sized blue whale to a vibrant textured beetle, the exhibition promises variety and includes limited edition prints and cards.

Ink Pots Printmakers – 5th to 11th July

'Inkpots' are a diverse and flourishing group of five contemporary printmakers graduating together from the The Curwen Print Study Centre in 2016 and continuing to print and exhibit together. March 2017 sees them here at The Aldeburgh Gallery, where a selection of beautiful woodcut, lino, etchings, collagraph and silk screen prints will be for sale from £35. Inspiration from coast and nature to bishops and buildings, both figurative and abstract. 

Gill Dove – 12th to 18th July

Walking through our landscape is integral to my work; a response to the breath-taking but fragile beauty of our environment; how light, through colour, reflects our moods and emotions. A mixed media celebration of our wide open spaces; of sky, sea, marsh, farmland and atmosphere.


Steve Higton – 19th to 25th July

Steve Higton’s inspirational and masterly depictions of the East Anglia coastline and landscape in oils.

Susanna MacInness – 9th to 15th August

Coining the name “Pindroppainter” Susanna drops a pin on a map and paints on location using oils. Aldeburgh wins hands down as Susanna’s favourite location to paint. It’s where she spent happy times as a child painting alongside her Grandfather Robin Forestier-Walker. Coming from a family of sailors, she has combined her interests and painted in France, Cornwall, Connecticut, the Isle of Wight, Cape town and the West Indies. Reflected light and atmosphere are her inspiration.
