Well, time flies when you are busy, not many days after the end of the Barry John all work is in situ for the next exhibition.
This is a show of 5 respected female artists, Jane Corsellis, Sarah Hopkins, Jane Duff, Diane Horne and Anne Kerr. The exhibition is called, Ones own script in pictures.
Jane Corsellis is known to many, definitely a UK artist of note, her work is stunning, from large oils on canvas to small works on papers not forgetting her small oils on panels painted on both the Thames near Chiswick where she lives and the seaside at Newport Pembs where she divides her time between urban and rural existence.
Sarah Hopkins has for over 30 years been trying to create negative appearing industrial and urban wastelands into striking images of everyday beauty.
She screen prints layers of vibrant colours to build her images and her success has brought her commisions with John Lewis and apart from the National Library of Wales also has work in the Parliamentary collection amongst many others.
Jane Duff is another interesting Artist, born in North Wales and a painter of the coastline there, this is only half the story, Jane was involved in the painting of industrial scenes at the demolition of Didcot Power Station and also at the huge development taking place at Battersea Power station where, in the not too distant future, her work will be shown in the area on giant billboards.
Diane Horne is a ceramicist with a print making past, looking at her work this quickly become evident. her work is very tactile, this, with her printmaking past has successfully created "a sense of place" and her relationship with the landscape into which she was born.
Diane is based in Cardiff and exhibits widely in Wales and in 2015 was awarded the Best New Design Maker at SIT Select.
Anne Kerr, is of Scottish heritage but has lived on the edge of Wales since her youth, her work for this exhibition has moved on from emotionally painted landscape to an extremely interesting type of relief work on paper and board. This will be the first time this new work has been exhibited and while this past finalist in the Welsh Artist of the year competition achieved success painting, the urge to develop her work in this way should raise her profile greatly as an artist of considerable ability.
This wonderful exhibition will be opened by David Tress, a man who is highly regarded on both the UK art scene and as a regular exhibitor at Messums Gallery in Bond Street, London.
An interesting evening this Friday between 6and 8 pm, please come and enjoy..
