Current Exhibition

Closer to Nature 

Tuesday 2nd August   10am-4pm FREE 

Two artists explore their relationship with nature. 

Maria Pavledis creates images using smoke to burn the paper, combined with natural plant dyes. The viewer is invited closer to nature, the marks echoing the hypnotic textures, rhythm’s and patterns of insect and animal life around us, creating a dreamlike experience. 

Lucy Kayne exhibits Monochrome photographs of natural forms, highlighting the details, textures, shapes and shadows that we often miss as we go about our busy lives.

 

Upcoming Exhibitions

24th September to 5th November

Paula Rego – Printmaker

The Tate Gallery’s major retrospective of Paula Rego’s work last year confirmed her position as one of the most important post-war European artists and emphasised the role that printmaking plays in her oeuvre.

Our exhibition is a survey of her prints, from early anti-Franco images to etchings from her famous Nursery Rhymes and Peter Pan portfolios and her Jane Eyre suite of lithographs. We will also be showing unique, unpublished prints and preparatory studies.

Saturday 24 September, Exhibition Talk   11am & 2pm   Free

Join David Case for an introductory talk. Booking advised.

Film – Secrets and Stories   11.45am-1.17pm   Free

Directed by her son, Nick Willing, this is a vivid account of Paula Rego’s personal life and career, from her childhood in Portugal to her current international status. Fascinating, honest and at times disturbing. 1hr 29mins. Booking advised

 

 

12th November to 7th January

The World of Graham Clarke

Graham Clarke, artist, author, illustrator and humorist, is one of Britain’s most popular printmakers. He has created some five hundred images of English rural life and history, of the Bible and of the Englishman’s view of Europe. Born in 1941, Clarke’s upbringing in the austerity of wartime and post-war Britain made him reliant on his own imagination.

Responding to the comedy of everyday life, he brings his own unique brand of humour to his interpretation of past and present history through the eyes of the common man.

Saturday 26 November   11-11.30am   Free

Join David Case for an introductory talk about the artist and his work. Booking Advised.

 

Throughout the year our gallery showcases work by both international and emerging artists as well as exhibitions exploring local heritage.

We are generally closed on Sunday and public holidays.
