The Summer Exhibition at Old Chapel Gallery, Pembridge, entitled ’Rings on the Water’ opens on Sunday July 9 2017 and will feature an exciting collection of work by talented British contemporary artists and makers, some of which will be new to the gallery.
This exhibition promises, once again, to inspire and excite collectors and appreciators of fine art and quality craft.
Returning by popular demand will be artist Karen Pearce who draws inspiration from her local surroundings in West Wales. Her love of the sea, the rocks, the coastal path are shown in this new collection of sparkling acrylic paintings.
Also returning to the gallery is artist Lizzy Waterhouse with a new collection of original drawings of birds, eagles, puffins to name but a few. Using biro, she fastidiously draws tangles of birds focusing on form and space. On approach these drawings can appear an abstract mass, it is only when you get closer that the highly detailed subject emerges.
Potter Robert Goldsmith will be showing his latest design of hand thrown and decorated stoneware pottery, which is functional and decorative and suitable for both oven and dish washer.
Jemima Jameson paints in acrylics on wood panels and has several new pieces including a box for your treasures and beautiful wall panels.
Lastly we will be showing a new collection of porcelain jewellery by Gill Laverick to compliment your summer wardrobe in hot shimmery colours.
Our aim from the beginning has been to promote the work of British contemporary artists and makers, some already well known in their field and many talented new comers. Now in our 28th year, this continues as strongly as ever.
The exhibition will continue until the end of August 2017
