Seven artists – Seven elements of Art

15th – 21st November 2017

  • Sarah Lyon Burrough  (Sculptor)  –  Heads, animals, birds, sea shells .

 Sarah is exhibiting different pieces to demonstrate her versatility and love of shape and movement. She challenges herself to create a feeling from clay and then finishes them in bronze resin or acrylics.  All pieces can be ordered in bronze resin.

  • Jayne Tricker Landscape artist and art educator.  

Jayne Tricker landscape artist and art educator.

Jayne’s work explores her emotional connection and response to the landscape, wherever she might find herself. Recently she has been working on pieces that connect her inner landscape to an observed landscape.


  • Sally Scanlon – Collograph prints and textiles

Sally is a printmaker and textile artist who finds inspiration from the organic processes of the natural world. The selection of the materials used to create the printing plate are as important as the printing process used to bring these withering elements back to life. Her work has recently explored texture further by incorporating embroidery to her Collagraph prints. She has also been exploring natural dyes from leaves, flowers and berries to create scarves which capture the essence of memory. www.brentfox.co.uk

  • Carol Kinchin – Contemporary and re-imagined landscapes and abstract work in mixed media on canvas and paper.

Carol aims, in her work to evoke a response in the viewer rather than a complete recognition of a place ; as in a glimpse or memory. Colour , light and atmosphere are essential components of her paintings. www.artgiftedbygod.co.uk/ profile/carol-kinchin

  • Pamela Armstrong – Prints,drawings, and photographs        

I currently work in pencil and my drawings are imaginal. I am also a photographer interested in both the fleeting image and the highly stylized set piece.

Celia combines her passion for travelling with her love of creating vibrant, loose sketches and paintings. Using dynamic pen, or brush-strokes, and colour to evoke movement and life, Celia’s style is free and energetic.  www.artbyceliabennett.com

  3. Unfortunately, there is no disabled parking in the gardens.
  4. Exhibitors should take care to design their exhibition layout with wheelchair use in mind.
