Spectrum & Atmosphere III

10-16  September 2014

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


  • This year’s Exhibition, ‘Spectrum & Atmosphere III’, with five artists, will feature original artwork, fused glassware, specialised textile items and crafts.
  • Paintings by Christine Smith include many wildlife images and scenes from home and abroad, working in a variety of media. Frances Arrow’s watercolours and pastels are an exploration in colour and design, and our third artist, Jane Ware has a very distinctive style using detailed ink and watercolour.  Jane will also have some country crafts on display. Complimenting the artwork are Caroline Priest and Sue Wathen.  Caroline creates fused glassware items, useful (bowls/platters/coasters etc.), decorative (wall hangings), and pretty (jewellery/pendants), every piece is unique.  Sue Wathen, who joins us for the first time, has recently discovered Japanese kimono fabrics which she turns into scarves, evening wear and bridal wraps, plus ornate Obi belts which make unique wall hangings and table runners.

Open daily 10am-5pm (Preview evening 10th Sept, 6pm – 8pm)

Entry Free
