FORTHCOMING EXHIBITIONS

OBJECTS OF DESIRE

Open Day : Saturday 10 November, 1100-1700

Come and have a glass of fizz and browse our winter exhibition, with work selected with Christmas in mind.

Featuring work from some exceptional artists, exhibiting with us for the first time will be:

SARAH RAPHAEL BALME:  Sarah Raphael Balme’s work plays with colour and pattern. Often drawing on folk art motifs, she makes rich still-lives, roomscapes and dream-like landscapes and portraits featuring fictional characters from duchesses to clowns.

CATHY BUTCHER: Semi -abstract animal sculptures formed from a single piece of clay, which morph into the form, incorporating textural patterns, sometimes raku or smoke-fired.

JUSTINA KOCHANKSY:  Making tiny worlds and figures has long been a passion for Justina Kochansky. Her current work with eggshells is a result of an artist residency at the Rensing Center and their focus on “ecology, economy, and creativity.

MICHELLE MCKINNEY:  Exquisitely delicate botanical pieces made from “contemporary industrial materials subtly handled so that even the closest scrutiny give almost no intimation of their origins.”

ELEANOR MEREDITH:  Enchantingly quirky ceramic creatures.

HARRIET PORTER:  Elegant, serene and minimal still life paintings, with a simplicity of composition which allows the exploration of light and shadow on her subject and the surrounding surfaces.

We will also be showing a new range of ceramic sculptures from two gallery favourites JANET CROOK and JEAN TOLKOVSKY, together with ceramics, jewellery, prints, paintings, sculpture from all our gallery regulars - and of course Christmas decorations and cards. 

 

FIGURE AND FORM

14th September - 3rd November

Private View: Thursday 13th September, 6.00-8.00 pm

A curated exhibition with paintings exploring the human condition supported by figurative sculpture and ceramics which explore form in various different ways.

We are very excited to welcome to the gallery:

MARCUS JAKE: Mixed media often incorporating photography: “At it’s absolute core this work is about connection. It is experiential and transpersonal, capturing those significant moments of the parts that make up the human experience.”

JOE INGLIS: vet turned sculptor from the Cotswolds: “with a passion for exploring the beauty of the natural world through sculpture. He works with a range of media including found and re-shaped natural materials, bronze, lead and stone.”

LESLEY OLDAKER: Paintings: “My work observes modern day society and explores through painting, the complex relationships, transient nature and purpose of random moving figurative groups and their interaction with the space around them. “

Returning to the gallery with new work for this exhibition are:

ELAINE BOLT: “Objects can tell stories”

Hand-thrown ceramic objects and vessels in porcelain, terracotta and mixed media.

SUE MUNDY: Sue “combines the gentleness of undulating landscapes, the turmoil of the sea and the soft sensuality of the human form into her work. Using a variety of traditional hand building techniques Sue creates contemporary sculptural forms.”

GWEN VAUGHAN: Ceramic sculptures, “cashmere creatures” : her work is “an amalgamation of things I’m passionate about, clay, folk art, up-cycling and the iconography of the circus.” 

Their work will be supported by paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jewellery and textiles by gallery regulars.

We invite you to join us for a glass of wine at the opening of this beautiful Spring exhibition: a
selection of artists whose work explores pastoral themes.

We are delighted to welcome to the gallery:

ANNA BOSS, acrylic landscape paintings: ‘the moments just before rainfall, the  settling of mist over rolling hills and the changing quality of light throughout the day’.

CANDICE COETSER, Burnt Earth C eramics stoneware and porcelain ceramics: … ‘purity ofform and simplicity of glaze’.

SU JAMESON, ceramic sculptor and 2017 Surrey Artist of the Year, ‘one-off hand built ceramic sculptures, mostly figurative in form’.

ROB PARR, ceramic sculptor: ‘work centred on the animal kingdom and how the use of the ‘plinth’ can be used to create a sense of monument…..searching out the intrinsic qualities that convey the character of the subject matter’.

CAROL ORWIN, animalier sculptor, makes a welcome return to Lingwood Samuel with a
selection of work around the Pastoral theme: ‘passionately interested in the muscular form, movement, and power of the animals she models’.

Their work will be supported by our ongoing collection of ceramics, sculptures, prints and
paintings by a wide variety of artists and makers.

OUT OF THE SHADOWS

Open Day: Saturday 10 February 2018, 1100-1700

Our first exhibition of 2018 is sure to be a talking point! Introducing three new exciting artists whose work is most definitely thought provoking:


BLOTT WORKS “Industrial organic useful sculpture” - stunning lights which are both functional and sculptural, whilst Jim Bond’s kinetic sculptures are intriguing and unusual, commanding attention. Jo Pond creates “beautiful and on occasion,
confusing, objects” for her Narrative Jewellery Collection: sculptural jewellery from found objects.

Returning with new work are:

  • Leila Arzaghi, introducing her intimate tea bag pictures and jewellery.
  • Raewyn Harrison, ceramic vessels and bottles featuring scenes from the Thames Estuary and Stoke on Trent.
