JUNE NEWS LETTER

June 2018

We are very excited to be part of the Worthing Artists Open Houses this month, we are venue number 9 so please come and see us if you are doing the trail. We will be featuring 3 artists: Frans De Leij, Richard Briggs and Craig John Foord.


Many of you will already be very familiar with FRANS DE LEIJ, he has been a member of the Sussex Watercolour Society since 2006. Over the years his paintings have gained rapidly in popularity and can be found in private and corporate collections in Britain and abroad. Frans is a self-taught watercolourist who loves to explore the medium’s fluidity and directness to obtain paintings that are full of light and atmosphere. Being a biologist at heart, it is perhaps not surprising that nature provides him with the main inspiration for his work. In particular the way light, shade and atmospheric conditions unify objects within the landscape, are of particular interest to him. Furthermore, his paintings try to capture a feeling of space and tranquillity often found in nature. We hope you find them as lovely as we do…..

RICHARD BRIGGS
paints on a full-time basis, showing work in galleries across the country. As well as producing originals for galleries, he is currently working on a range of images called ‘Briggs Britain’ which demonstrates his passion for creating varied and vibrant scenes. We have commissioned him to paint local scenes for us in his distinctive technique of using acrylics in the style of watercolours.

A new addition to the gallery are some fantastic resin sculptures from a local man
CRAIG JOHN FOORD.
Craig has always had a strong emotional connection with outer space, and exploration of other planets. This is represented in his sculptures which really are ‘out of this world’. He loves the way the resin reacts with the light bouncing off the different surfaces and creating reflections and images. “Mother Nature is the best artist there is. These pieces represent my own personal journey through life and the universe.”

We look forward to welcoming you,
Artists that will be in attendance: 11 am - 4 pm
16th June - Craig Foord

March 2018

With Mother's Day on Sunday 11th March fast approaching, we have got plenty of ideas for gifts for that special lady.

Firstly MICHAEL SIMPSON has just released some fantastic Limited Edition solid bronzes. We are stocking the elephant, 'Hold On Tight' and the giraffes; 'High Hopes', both of which are fantastic.

If solid bronze is a little out of your price range then GENESIS have some amazing pieces in a cold cast resin dipped in bronze. They are great value and are proving really popular since we started stocking this range which we bring over from Ireland. Pop in to see the latest selection which includes some rather cute children with their pets and some stunning horse, dog and cat sculptures.

Further to Jane and Gary's buying trip we have some lovely originals from KEVIN BANDEE. Ranging in price from £195 and going up to £1250, we really do have something to suit all budgets.

Kevin uses acrylics and resin to create aqueous surface design. His technique is similar to the Turkish art of 'ebru', involving marbling, pouring, chemical reaction, fluid and flow. He revisits each piece many times to ensure that the three dimensional effect is working in perfect harmony with his portrayals of nature. The colours in his work are stunning, definitely one to keep an eye on...

Someone very much already established and well known in the art world is KEITH PROCTOR and we currently have a lovely selection of his work. Keith puts children and youngsters very much at the centre of his works of art, displaying a knack for framing his joyful subjects in timelessly innocent, playful, adventurous poses. Hence they would be the perfect gift for Mum!

AUGUST NEWSLETTER

August 2018

We hope you are all enjoying the summer holidays, hopefully the sun will continue now the kids have broken up from school. We have some lovely seaside themed art to get you in the mood for the summer break.


DUNCAN MACGREGOR is an experienced and adventurous sailor and his voyages have inspired much of his stunning work. Ranging from evocative coastal landscapes to exhilarating representations of sailing through the wind, his compelling images confirm his position as the UK's most exciting and innovative contemporary marine artist. His distinctive white sails, majestic skies and sparkling reflections combine to form spellbinding narratives of life on the coast and at sea. We have both an original pieces and limited editions of his work.
Continuing the beach theme is REBECCA LARDNER, her distinctive oils on canvas are beautifully depicted portrayals of life on the land and the sea. The large ensemble cast of figures, boats and sea birds creates an impression of ceaseless activity, and this is heightened by the natural curves of the classic English harbour which provide movement and energy. Her palette is based strongly on the colours of the sea, with blues, greens and greys dominating the entire canvas. They really are fun and quirky and are selling really well, so pop in for a look.
Also in the gallery we have a coastal selection of work from the ever popular ALLAN MORGAN. Having formerly spent many years living near the coast, he regularly returns to this subject matter with much of his work. The basis of his inspiration remains largely the same however, namely the love of light, colour and atmosphere in the landscape.
Let us know what you think of the latest additions to the gallery. Also to give you plenty of notice to plan your diaries we are delighted to announce that we will be hosting the final night of the Frogman tour this year on Friday 5th October, exciting times ahead….

New artists for July, The first to introduce is PAUL HARVEY who is making some beautiful sculptures.

Paul has been a full time sculptor for over 20 years, his studio is set in the middle of the Hampshire countryside, on the edge of a half-acre pond/lake, which over the past ten years he with his wife have turned into a small nature reserve, which in turn has encouraged many of the birds he sculpts to show themselves in their true and natural light. Most of his work up until now however has been large garden sculpture, which he has sold all over the world, and to a wide variety of clients including the Royal family, he has exhibited at Chelsea Flower Show for many years, but has now decided to concentrate on the work that gives him the most pleasure, birds and art deco, they blend perfectly, the aerodynamic lines of birds are interpreted through much of his work with an art deco feel.
Also new to the gallery is Alex McGarry who specialises in oil paintings of British wildlife and farmyard animals. She aims to encapsulate the anthropomorphism of animals through her paintings. Her career as an artist started off as an Interior Designer for new homes. It was this that led her to creating all the paintings for show homes for a major UK house builder. She has also won several awards, including best in show: chosen by the general public, at Mottisfont Abbey, Hampshire, from over 200 exhibits. We certainly feel she is well on the way to following in her father, Pip McGarry’s footsteps as an extremely successful photorealist artist.

March 2018

With Mother's Day on Sunday 11th March fast approaching, we have got plenty of ideas for gifts for that special lady.

Firstly MICHAEL SIMPSON has just released some fantastic Limited Edition solid bronzes. We are stocking the elephant, 'Hold On Tight' and the giraffes; 'High Hopes', both of which are fantastic.

If solid bronze is a little out of your price range then GENESIS have some amazing pieces in a cold cast resin dipped in bronze. They are great value and are proving really popular since we started stocking this range which we bring over from Ireland. Pop in to see the latest selection which includes some rather cute children with their pets and some stunning horse, dog and cat sculptures.

Further to Jane and Gary's buying trip we have some lovely originals from KEVIN BANDEE. Ranging in price from £195 and going up to £1250, we really do have something to suit all budgets.

Kevin uses acrylics and resin to create aqueous surface design. His technique is similar to the Turkish art of 'ebru', involving marbling, pouring, chemical reaction, fluid and flow. He revisits each piece many times to ensure that the three dimensional effect is working in perfect harmony with his portrayals of nature. The colours in his work are stunning, definitely one to keep an eye on...

Someone very much already established and well known in the art world is KEITH PROCTOR and we currently have a lovely selection of his work. Keith puts children and youngsters very much at the centre of his works of art, displaying a knack for framing his joyful subjects in timelessly innocent, playful, adventurous poses. Hence they would be the perfect gift for Mum!
