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
17th June - Father’s Day
23rd June - Frans De Leij Painting 1 - 3 pm
24th June - Frans De Leij
30th June - Craig Foord & Richard Briggs Painting
1st July - Frans De Leij Painting 1 - 3 pm

The artists will be available to talk about their work and Frans and Richard will be painting on the day to demonstrate their techniques.

We always like to hear feedback, you can contact us via Facebook or Instagram

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!

We hope you have all enjoyed a lovely Christmas break with family and friends. We would like to wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year. We are looking forward to exciting times ahead in the gallery with new artists joining us and new projects from established artists.
PAUL KARSLAKE is producing some amazing pieces at the moment. His Freddie Mercury “Mr Fahrenheit” is full of emotion and power. Born in 1958 Paul was always going to be an artist. His father was a renowned architectural model maker and Paul learnt everything about form and perspective from him. Paul creates original and limited edition art; his work can be found in clubs, restaurants, on motorcycles, planes and even on the late Terry Wogan’s waistcoats! His work hangs in the houses of the rich and famous. From modern surrealism to photo-realism, Paul prides himself on being able to work in any style and any medium. Environmental issues and iconic heroes are subjects which often feature in his art. Still life, animals and portraits are frequently interpreted with his own humour. A strong believer that grim determination is a prerequisite to success in any field, he has chosen to beat the trend and become a successful artist who is able to enjoy the fruits of his labour in his own lifetime. The secret of his success is simply: “Stick to what you are good at!” Paul is an award winning artist who overflows with inspiration and enthusiasm, and we are thrilled to be exhibiting his work.
We are also enjoying the talent and humour of CHRIS CHAPMAN. Chris has been a successful illustrator since graduating from Leicester College of Art in 1979, where he studied graphic design. After moving to London during the early years of his career, he now lives and works in Bournemouth, Dorset. He currently produces paintings exclusively for the fine art market with a continually changing selection of ideas. His work is humorous and he enjoys creating the visual joke as much as executing the final painting. Chris uses a variety of media depending on the particular project he is working on. This can be seen by looking through his portfolio which shows examples in acrylics, coloured pencils, gouache and graphite pencil. His paintings have been exhibited widely in numerous galleries including the Royal Academy of Arts in London, so we are pleased to be able to show them here in Worthing.
This year we will of course be having some more of our popular artist event evenings, so keep an eye out for your newsletters so you don’t miss out on an invite, those of you that have attended before you know how much fun they can be!
Please pop in and see us and let us know what you think of the latest additions to the collection. We always like to hear feedback and don’t forget you can contact us via Facebook or Instagram….

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.
Back in stock we have some fantastic pieces from BOB DYLAN, these really are very collectable, please contact us for more information or pop into the gallery to view them. Let us know what you think of the latest additions to the collection. We always like to hear feedback and don’t forget you can contact us via Facebook or Instagram….

This limited edition of 1941: the year of his birth has been hand-signed by Bob Dylan; which in itself is highly collectable. Act quickly if you are interested as it won't be around for long.


PAUL KARSLAKE, the ex-brother in law of Ronnie Wood is an award winning artist who overflows with inspiration and enthusiasm. Paul creates original and limited edition art; his work can be found in clubs, restaurants, on motorcycles and even planes. His work hangs in the houses of the rich and famous. From modern surrealism to photo-realism, Paul prides himself on being able to work in any style and any medium. Iconic heroes often feature in his art, currently we are joined in the gallery by Freddie Mercury, Jimi Hendrix, Amy Winehouse and The Rolling Stones to name a few, quite a hall of fame!

As we mentioned at the end of the last newsletter JACK VETTRIANO has released a fantastic piece 'La Fille a la Moto' which is already selling well. A nice sunny place on the seafront, which could be Nice? Or Worthing?!
