Spectrum & Atmosphere

25th – 31st March 2015

Christine Smith, Jane Ware, Frances Arrow, Sue Jolley, Caroline Priest and Sue Wathen

 

  • Spectrum & Atmosphere returns to the Gardens Gallery featuring six artists with a colourful display of original artwork, fused glassware, specialised textiles and crafts.

 

  • Christine Smith likes to tackle a variety of subjects working in watercolour, acrylics and graphite.  Images include wildlife and scenes from home and abroad.  She successfully took part in Channel 4’s Watercolour Challenge in 2001 and paintings produced were exhibited in London’s Mall Galleries.  Christine regularly exhibits around the county.

 

  • Jane Ware, a keen and enthusiastic local artist, enjoys creating happy memories in detailed ink and watercolour, from seagulls in St Ives, to sunsets in South Africa.  She continues to paint her atmospheric jazz and café scenes, and for this Exhibition, she is looking to ‘Spring’ for her inspiration to capture the delicate freshness of Cotswold landscapes, crisp and cool seascapes and introducing bright zingy colours for her individual and quirky creative crafts.

 

  • Frances Arrow’s paintings are an exploration in colour and design.  Impressions come from the Cotswolds and travels further afield then worked in watercolour with pastels or acrylics.  Many new works in acrylic Frances has been experimenting with texture, for example sand from the actual beach!  Her work is also shown at various local exhibitions.

 

  • Inspiration for Sue Jolley often comes from glimpses of light however fleeting.  Abstract concentrates these feelings to evoke an impression of colours and shapes and many ideas are drawn from travel in India and the Far East plus three weeks every year spent painting in Cornwall.  She has exhibited in Bristol, Bath, Shropshire, Oxfordshire and throughout the Cotswolds.

 

  • Caroline Priest creates fused glassware with items ranging from useful (bowls/platters/coasters), decorative (wall hanging) to pretty (jewellery/pendants), and every piece is unique.

 

  • Sue Wathen is fascinated by vintage fabrics, textiles and embroidery.   She recently discovered Japanese kimono fabrics and these are turned into scarves and bridal wraps and the richly embroidered Obi belts make stunning wall hangings and table runners.

Open daily 10am-5pm

Entry Free
