We Three Meet Again

Lyn Clarke, Denise Lonsdale and Lorna Rankin

8th – 14th June 2016


  • Lyn Clarke

Lyn Clarke makes brightly coloured and patterned silk scarves as well as vibrant watercolour or acrylic paintings. Her colour inspiration comes from her childhood memories of Africa.


  • Denise Lonsdale


Denise has been a keen artist since childhood, and has worked in a variety of media over the years. Through the 1990s her focus was almost exclusively on ceramics, but since returning to Bristol in 2000 she has also worked in glass and metal. This experience has contributed to her interest in enamelling which combines aspects of each of these media. The allure of enamelling for Denise is being able to build textures and shapes on metal while using brilliant vibrant colours.


  • Lorna Rankin


Lorna Rankin’s philosophy is to paint places that she loves using watercolour to create pictures that capture the appeal of some of the Cotswold and South West’s most popular towns, villages and landscapes. Recently she has changed direction in compositions that represent the essence of subjects by combining several sketches into one composition using acrylics.

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.
