Hay Festival Exhibition @ OCG opens on Saturday May 27 2017
A special Festival Exhibition at Old Chapel Gallery, Pembridge to run during the Hay Festival of Literature and the Arts opens on Saturday May 27th and continues to the end of June and features the work of talented British artists and makers from far and near.
Heading the line up is artist Vivienne Cawson who captures pattern, colour and natural form which are the focus for her floral watercolours. Inspiration is sparked by the colours and shapes of flowers, gorgeous fabric, a special jug or vase.
Artist and jeweller Hannah Willow, whose inspiration comes from the land, wild and free places, stories and folklore, poetry, myth and legend. She strives to capture the hidden memory held within when creating her silver jewellery and mixed media paintings.
John Mainwaring has created a new collection of carved wooden sculptures. “Although I use traditional tools I am willing to incorporate modern developments if it suits me and I try to bring out the spirit or essence of the piece I am working on. If this needs exaggeration, the length of a bird’s beak for instance, then I will do so.”
Also on display will be a tempting collection of collectable pottery by regular gallery exhibitors, interior bronze sculpture by Philip Hearsey, stained glass by Frans Wesselman and Tamsin Abbott, studio glass by Jane Charles, ceramics by Ruth Gibson, textiles by Kathie Barrs, wearables in linen and felted lambs wool and a delightful collection of jewellery all by British designer makers including a new collection ton of watch Piece jewellery.
There is also an ever-changing collection of unique garden sculptures to enhance your outdoor space in a variety of media to include stoneware, forged iron, stainless steel, glass and more.
