New for summer 2018

Inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh

This exhibition and sale of Textile Crafts is by the ‘Women Have a Go Group’ in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.

The work uses elements of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's designs in new, original ways.

Also featured will be a display of items the group usually makes for those in need such as ‘Linus Quilts’ for children experiencing trauma, ‘Twiddle Muffs’ for Dementia Sufferers, blankets and warm clothing for refugees, or ‘Dresses for girls around the world’.
These items are made from donated material and are not for sale.

Drawn Together

This exhibition of drawings is a celebration of Graeme and Julia Roach’s combined life-long commitment to drawing. It is also the first exhibition the couple have had together as a duo in their thirty-year partnership.

Graeme’s drawings feature geese and swans. His drawings are beautifully executed, often life size and taking months to create leaving the viewer mightily impressed by their complexity and intricate detail.

In contrast, Julia’s drawings are on a much smaller scale and consist of playful celebrations of mark making, decorative patterns, shapes and colour which always have a figurative reference. Old toys and her eclectic array of collected and found objects are sources of inspiration.

Works are for sale.
