The Storm After The Calm – Summer Waves PV

The Private View for our Summer Waves exhibition was a lively affair made more lively by a fulsome flow of Sangria. Many of the artists involved in the show were in attendance, several others sent apologies for absence, others were simply AWOL!

The range of work in the show is very wide, as you’d expect in a mixed show of some 42 artists, and the overall quality is very high. The show includes works by: Jeremy Annear, Nicky Basford, Frank Beanland, Bill Bolger, Martyn Brewster, Chris Buck, Judy Buxton, John Charles Clark, Maurice Cockrill, Jessica Cooper, Henrietta Dubrey, John Emanuel, Lucy Foakes, Anthony Frost, Luke Frost, Jeremy Gardiner, Marie-Claire Hamon, Rebecca Harvey, Liz Hough, Chris Insoll, Mary Mabbutt, Daphne McClure, Bernard Irwin, Dan Kelly, Sue Kennington, Ffiona Lewis, Jason Lilley, Jane Macmiadhachain, Felicity Mara, Christopher Marvell, Alice Mumford, Colin Orchard, Sarah Poland, Brian Rice, Graham Rich, Karen Wade, Amanda Wallwork, Linda Weir and Phil Whiting.


Marie-Claire Hamon pays us a visit

Marie-Claire Hamon's 'Escapee'
Marie-Claire Hamon's 'Escapee'

Marie-Claire was in the gallery a few days ago to drop off some new works for us to show. Followers of her work might like to take a look…you’ll find them on the New Works page of the gallery website here. The works she brought us included three experimental pieces made using oil paint and Hammerite on aluminium, mounted onto canvas. My personal favourite of the group she delivered is the one that comes across least well onscreen. It’s called ‘Escapee’ and features a Hamon bicycle. It’s a lovely little painting.
