A Feast For The Eyes!

Molly Abbott and Claudia Araceli

7th – 13th December 2016


  • Claudia Araceli’s evocative water colours and Molly Abbott’s vibrant ceramics perfectly complement each other.
  • Claudia’s paintings are inspired by energy, light and atmosphere, the subject matter is of lesser importance to her. She paints almost exclusively plain air, finding it exciting not knowing what will capture her attention next.
  • Molly Abbott’s assembled ceramic vessels reference her own environment, using textures and images of life forms as well as manmade structures. The creamy clay enhances the addition of swathes of colour which are brought to life by transparent glazes.

Open Daily 10am – 5pm

Entry free

The Gardens were originally developed in the early 1800's and its centrepiece is the Bandstand.

Facing the Bandstand is the Proscenium Building where we now have our Gallery.

  1. There is wheelchair access to the gallery from the path between the tennis courts and the gallery.
  2. For exhibitors delivering their work, there is a locked bollard to be removed at the gardens entrance. See link below for details.
  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.

For full information about accessibility, please follow this link:


 Typical annual foot-fall is 22000.

This varies according to the variables of weather, social media, networking, number of artists, and the appeal of the Exhibition
