NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER

November 2019

Firstly a big thank you to all of you who joined us either at Sussex Art Fair in Brighton or at our annual Frogman event. We thoroughly enjoyed both and hope you did too?
To make starting your Christmas shopping that bit easier we have some offers to introduce to you for this month.



For every DOUG HYDE painting or sculpture purchased in November we will give you a £50 gift voucher to spend in the gallery during December or January on whatever you would like.
In the gallery we have some fantastic pieces from KEVIN BANDEE. He uses acrylics and resin to create aqueous surface design. His technique is indebted 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. "My aim has always been to find my own voice - a style free from outside influences that has never been seen before, and my fractal inspired homages to nature are highly personal and, I hope, unique."
We are currently offering Kevin's work at two for £200 for the 12"x12" framed pieces or two for £400 for the 13"x16" ones which really is a fantastic deal.
Gifts from GENESIS are always popular at this time of year and we have a fabulous selection in stock to choose from. Prices start at £15 so don't leave it too long to do your Christmas shopping as these always fly out.

* £50 gift vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer *



August Newsletter

August 2019

We hope you are all enjoying the summer holidays so far, hopefully the sun will continue now the kids have broken up from school. We have some lovely new art to introduce for the summer.


SHAUN GAGG and his wonderful sculptures are proving very popular since we have had him in the gallery. Shaun was born in 1969 and brought up in the mining village of Wombwell near Barnsley in Yorkshire. At school he always enjoyed art and was fascinated by Salvador Dali’s work. Throughout his career he has been influenced by Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and Andy Goldsworthy whilst working in slate. Shaun jokes that if you were to ask his wife or any of his family to describe his work at this point, they would say “he has to go over the top and make everything twice as big as it needs to be”. This trait eventually became his downfall as his left leg eventually gave up due to the weight of the slate he had been carrying around. His leg already had pins and a metal plate in it from an old climbing accident and by the end of a long day working on the slate, he would be limping badly and in a lot of pain. He constructed an external metal calliper which went from under the heel of his boot up to his knee and was strapped to his leg. This helped in two ways; it not only took the pressure off his ankle, it also made him dig out his welder to make it. He has never looked back and for the last five years, he has made nothing but welded sculptures and whereas before, the natural shape of the stone dictated the final form of the finished sculpture, with welding Shaun can let his imagination run wild and make practically anything. Shaun still goes over the top and makes everything as big as possible, because after all, he is a Yorkshireman and so value for money is everything, even in art!
Also new to the gallery is CHARLOTTE ATKINSON. Charlotte lives on the south coast of Devon, with her family. Painting amongst the stunning seascapes and wild moorland. Her alluring and sensuous paintings are dedicated to our inner strength and vitality. A lifelong passion for figure drawing led her to Italy and the academic study of portraiture in Florence. Her approach combines the principles of her classical figure drawing background with a distinctive ethereal style. Her award winning artwork cultivates an awareness and connection to the body along with a curiosity and experimentation around how the body moves and feels. These paintings feel almost beneficial to our emotional wellbeing. Collectors describe Charlottes' paintings as "Creating a powerful atmosphere of optimism."
A very established artist with us is KERRY DARLINGTON. We love her work, especially these fantastic new unique hand embellished limited editions. ‘Dragon of The Underworld’ and ‘Dragon of Hidden Treasures’ priced at £595 each they are a great opportunity to purchase her work.
Let us know what you think of the latest additions to the gallery. Also to give you plenty of notice to plan your diaries October is a busy month for us with the Frogman tour on Thursday 3rd and Sussex Art Fair on the 11th, 12th and 13th, exciting times ahead….
