Event Details

Angie Spencer brings the exhibition A Stones Throw to The Gardens Gallery, 21st – 26th April.

Following a residency at Hawkwood CFT in September 2020, I’m delighted to return to the Gardens Gallery with a new collection of mostly ‘plein air’ oil paintings and drawings. Due to Covid travel restrictions, most of these new paintings depict scenes ‘A Stone’s Throw’ from my home and studio in Stroud.

My 5 day residential artists residency at Hawkwood (funded by the Francis W Rickett Arts Trust) was a opportunity for me to spend uninterrupted time on techniques of plein air painting in woodland, and subsequently I continued painting en plein air throughout the autumn and winter, with some finishing in the studio.

I also returned to the River Frome (where I have recently discovered the joy of regular cold water swimming!) to do some larger scale plain air paintings in February when the whole area was flooded, and explored my favourite high ground landscapes around Lypiatt and Bisley.

I draw all my inspiration from nature and I am concerned about damage to the environment, so I always donate 10% of my sales of originals to environmental charities to give something back.
