Exhibitions - Winter 2018

Elemental ­– 18th October to 24th October

Ruth Grindrod. Elemental is an exhibition of landscape photography from the UK and beyond that focuses on the interplay between the elements as they transform the landscape. The photographs will show how the elements influence not only the physicality of the landscape but also our emotional response to it. Ruth Grindrod is a landscape photographer living in Norfolk. Her work has gained both local and national acclaim.

Eastern Edge – 25th to 31st October

Patricia Davidson, Marilyn Jackson and Bill Haward. Two painters and an architect explore a sense of space with drawing, collage, monoprints and acrylics. 

Sarah AndersonPoetry in Aldeburgh Festival – 2nd to 7th November

Sarah Anderson founded the Travel Bookshop in Notting Hill in 1979 the shop that later featured in the film Notting Hill. She was educated at the London University colleges of SOAS and Heythrop, has travelled widely, taught travel writing at City University, writes regular travel pieces, reviews books and gives talks worldwide. She has been a judge for the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award and for the Whitbread Biography Prize. Her publications include Anderson’s Travel Companion, The Virago Book of Spirituality, Inside Notting Hill and most recently Halfway to Venus: A One-Armed Journey. She has had solo exhibitions of her paintings at the Tabernacle in London, and has also exhibited at St John & St Elizabeth Hospital and the Dovedale Arts Festival.

My love of travel has led me to want to combine shapes and colours in new ways. Some of my collages, which are mixed media, are of recognizable places, some not – but they all have an element of fantasy – because who can really get under the skin of a place – there is always so much more to discover.

Lee McColvilleLee McCorville – 8th to 14th November

Born in South Wales, moved to England aged two. Now living in Aldeburgh, Suffolk. I worked for many years in the fashion industry designing for my shop.
Changed direction about twenty years ago to become an obsessive and driven artist. Essentially an intuitive painter, I respond to colour, texture and mood. Most of my work is from my imagination, half remembered images, people I have seen in a world that always seems to border on farce. Currently working in acrylic, ink, charcoal and collage.

QuadArt – 15th to 21st November

Issy Coe, Sheila Volpe, Bobbie Watchorn and Andrew Edmonds. QuadArt makes a return visit to Aldeburgh Arts Gallery and presents an eclectic selection of art, including paintings (watercolours, acrylics, oils, pastels and mixed media) and sculptures (ceramics and bronzes). The four artists draw inspiration from the natural world, the human form, and the landscape in and around East Anglia.

Shelley NottStill life and the art of slow photography – 14th to 24th December

Shelley Nott is a photographer with a growing reputation for her striking still lifes.

She is absorbed in the world of slow photography. Each of her photographs is painstakingly composed using the traditions of the classical masters, but with a modern touch. She manipulates natural light to tease out the beauty and texture of her subject – be it an elegant rose or a common cabbage. In each photograph she uses 21st Century techniques, but with painstaking care and skill.

This exhibition is the fruit of her continuing research and development that has taken her, so far, to Holland, Denmark and, of course, London. Shelley lives in East Suffolk where she also produces work to commission.

Sara JohnsonSara Johnson – 26th December to 2nd January 

Sara is showing her latest collection of atmospheric watercolour landscapes, as well as some recent acrylic and mixed media paintings.
