Spectrum and Atmosphere


10 – 16 August 2016

  • Spectrum & Atmosphere return to the Gardens Gallery featuring a varied and colourful display of original artwork, fused glass, crafts and embroidery.


  • Christine Smith likes to tackle a variety of subjects working in watercolour, acrylics and graphite.  Images include wildlife and scenes from home and abroad.  Jane Ware is a keen and enthusiastic local artist and enjoys creating happy memories in detailed ink and watercolour, from seagulls in St Ives, to sunsets in South Africa. Frances Arrow’s paintings are an exploration in colour, design and texture.  Impressions come from the Cotswolds and travels further afield then worked in watercolour with pastels or acrylics.  Complementing the paintings is the fused glassware designed by Caroline Priest ranging from decorative to useful and every piece unique.


  • This year we are joined by three new exhibitors

Alan Haylock brings a selection of paintings and very detailed drawings in ink featuring       local wildlife and rural scenes. Norrie Fyfe has a colourful collection of handmade items including bags, scarves and much more.

Geraldine Biard is a product and furniture designer from France.  She gets her inspiration from everywhere and everything and creates her embroideries from her French heritage.

  • Maintenance The east turret is in need of repair to prevent rain leaking in when the wind is in the ‘wrong’ direction. We hope to get this done during gallery downtime.
