Exhibitions - Spring 2020

Extinction RebellionAre we good ancestors? – 12th to 19th February

So what does it mean to be a good human and a good ancestor? XR Suffolk Sunrise is curating an exhibition to consider these questions. It will feature the art of renowned Suffolk artists, including Maggi Hambling, Jelly Green and Julian Perry. Also on display will be pieces from local young people – as the first generation whose lives will be seriously affected by climate change, their voices are a vital part of the conversation. The exhibition will offer the art for sale to fundraise for XR Suffolk Sunrise and the Actions we take to encourage the system to #TellTheTruth and #ActNow.
Preview and private viewing by invite on 12th February, open to public from 13th February.

Since their last showing at The Aldeburgh Gallery, Sarah Nutley and Tony Rothon have been painting in Norfolk. A landscape of mediaeval churches, sugar beet and dark churned fields. Sarah and Tony hope that the pictures do justice to such beauty, history and drama.

Meanwhile, in London, there is a continued demand for Tony's portraits. The past seven month's work is of a family of four children, a large scale work, and the second in a series of such paintings for neighbouring residents of Gloucester Crescent, Camden. There is now a short waiting list for these works.

Caroline Evans Ruth GrindrodRuth Grindrod and Caroline Evans – 16th to 22nd April

In this exhibition Caroline and Ruth each explore the landscape using different media. Caroline’s art work focuses on the textures and marks found on location. She explores, questions and interprets the discoveries she finds, in a dynamically expansive way. Caroline’s finished works reflect back to her initial feelings when first viewing a location.  Ruth’s photographs draw on the interplay of light with landscape features. The textures and movement of the landscapes are synthesised to reflect the atmosphere of each location. Caroline and Ruth’s work complement each other to create this exhibition which celebrates the unique elements of the landscape.

Ben Wardle Ben Wardle Ben Wardle – 28th May to 3rd June

I am lucky enough to spend my working days on horseback exploring some of the most beautiful countryside East Anglia has to offer. My paintings are of what I see in these landscapes, but more importantly how I feel when I am in them. 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.

I am inspired by the research of Environmental Philosopher Glenn Albrecht, ‘Deep’ Ecology, and the writings of Roger Deakin, Robert Macfarlane and all the other creatives.
