Acrylics by Annie Bousfield

Saturday June 8th 2024 – Thursday August 8th 2024

We are delighted to welcome back Annie Bousfield for a solo exhibition.Annie Bousfield lives in Easingwold, North Yorkshire and has embraced a love of painting following a career in nursing and podiatry.Annie has sold paintings online and in galleries and shops for several years, whilst also attending various courses and workshops for further inspiration.

“I use mainly acrylics which give vibrant colour and texture to my work, and most of my paintings are on either handmade blocks or on canvases mounted in handmade frames.

My biggest passion is being out in the countryside, right in the middle of it all, and my colourful textured painting is in some ways just ‘what I bring home.’ “

She concludes: “We aren’t on this planet for long so let’s do something that makes us happy.”

Pastel Passion

Fiona Carvell – Solo Exhibition

Saturday September 21st 2024 – Thursday October 31st 2024

We look forward to be showcasing Fiona’s work in this solo exhibition. Both originals and prints will be available to purchase as well as a variety of smaller pieces and unframed prints. 

Fiona Carvell is an award winning pastel Artist based in Shotley Bridge. A signature member of the Pastel Society of America and a member of The Society of Graphic Fine Art, her work has been exhibited in National and international exhibitions, including the Royal Academy of Art.

Fiona is perhaps best known for her Still Life and Seascape pieces, which capture both storytelling and movement via the medium of pastel. Colour, light and texture are all strong features of her work, depicted through a process which lies somewhere between drawing and painting. Each work has a story, often of the connections between ourselves and the world around us.

 

A Place in Time

Graham Caffull – Solo Exhibition

Saturday November 2nd 2024 – Thursday January 9th 2025

Graham uses maps to inform his work and tries to incorporate their beautiful colours into his art. Many of the places and buildings featured in his paintings have historical significance, so you will often see castles, cathedrals, lighthouses and famous bridges, alongside scenery associated with the places he tries to represent.

“Maps are not just about places – they are about history, population and land-use.  It is fascinating to see from old maps how things have changed over the years – roads and other transport links have multiplied, old buildings and farms have disappeared, cities have grown in size and new settlements sprung up”

Almost without exception, the places featured in his paintings appear on the original, vintage maps which he uses as his canvases, and so it can be said that his paintings indeed feature A Place in Time.

We look forward to be showcasing Graham’s work in this solo exhibition. Both originals and prints will be available to purchase as well as a variety of unframed prints and cards.
