Junction 12 Art Group Summer Exhibition

13-19 July 2022

10am-5pm daily

Presenting a wide range of abstract and representational artworks from seven members of Junction 12 Art Group.

Junction 12 Art Group is an exciting Gloucestershire collective of creative and enthusiastic artists who collaborate and show their original art work. The group offers a diverse range of talent, working across a range of styles and media. The seven exhibiting artists will all be stewarding during the week, and look forward to meeting you. You are invited to join the group for their private view Friday 13 July 6-8pm.

Ann Hunt is a retired veterinary surgeon who has exchanged a syringe and scalpel for a paint brush to enable her love and knowledge of wildlife to help with conservation projects in a gentler way. Having spent time as a volunteer in an elephant rescue orphanage in Zambia, she is passionate about helping with their ongoing welfare. Please come and enjoy her work and chat about the elephants, and you will be able to hear the amazing story of Mutaanzi David.

Gerald Crittle will be exhibiting his big and bold abstracts created in mixed media. His work is experimental, it starts by adding texture to a board before adding different paints and inks. Gerald explained “I am not trying to replicate anything recognisable but to create a work that takes the viewer to a faraway galaxy or some other unknown place. Hopefully, they will keep seeing new shapes and patterns in my work.” Much of Gerald’s work is finished with resin which highlights the colours in the painting.

Martyn Dymott has recently expanded the range of media that he uses to paint by turning to a painting application on a tablet to produce landscapes, portraits, figurative subjects and some new abstracts. Some pieces are produced on aluminium dibond as one-off originals and others are printed as giclée prints in small limited editions. Martyn is deliberately sharing examples of his new digital paintings this year to raise the awareness of this emerging way of painting amongst the gallery’s visitors.

Natalie Bowden is an artist living in the beautiful Cotswolds. She loves to express my personality and those of her subjects through the use of vibrant colours and movement. Her favourite medium is watercolour – for its fluidity, luminescence, and unpredictable nature. Painting in watercolour is always an experiment! Natalie’s watercolour journey began at an art class in her local village hall when her youngest was a baby. While she had always been creative, spending much of her childhood drawing and crafting, her true passion for painting sparked during early parenthood. She soon developed my own style – not by design but by simply painting with the flow, wherever the feeling took her.

Sarah Goddard is a mixed-media abstract artist who draws inspiration from the colours, shapes, textures and patterns of the natural world, which can calm or enliven us. We all see the world around us differently and our experiences impact on how we perceive our surroundings. Being sight-impaired, Sarah brings different perceptions and representations of the world to her art. She aims to embody the emotional experiences prompted by nature, and snapshots of the way she sees the world. Creating art is an essentially human way of communicating emotions, and Sarah is driven to creativity to express herself. Over the last two years, this has included creating art inspired by her experience of living with Long Covid, and the restorative power of time spent in nature.

 

Acrylic artist Tamsin Stuart shares some of her latest creations full of energy and life. Her horses run free and her kingfisher is poised for lunch. A kickboxer and martial artist, Cheltenham-based Tamsin is rather obsessed with movement and colour, and likes her subjects to be active and bursting with life. Some of her favourite subjects are birds, animals, nature, water, sport and, more recently, buildings, but she’ll have a go at anything that inspires her. Her painting of Pittville Pump Room has been used extensively by The Cheltenham Trust to promote the popular heritage site.

Wendy Golding is a Gloucester-based abstract artist who creates abstracted landscapes and abstract paintings in acrylic, ink and mixed media, and explores emotional connections to an area rather than a purely realistic approach.  This allows the viewer to connect to the painting with their emotions first, letting them reflect and explore the artist’s choice of colour, texture and mark-making.
