A stunningly characteristic series of acrylic and oil paintings on the theme of The Colour of Jazz. Raby smoothly combines the colour and passion of music, instrument and the musician’s dedication to their work. This new collection references the idea of synaesthesia exploring music through colour and form. Also on display are earlier still life pieces.
Flowers, Faces and Fusion, By Four Friends
Oct 28th- 5th Jan 2015, The Longwall and Barside Space
Four friends and local artists, Lindsay Tether, Hazel Tyrell, Julie Smith and Wendy Stafford have joined together to showcase their talents with Flowers, Faces and Fusion. An eclectic mix of painting, photography, mixed media and fused glass.
“It is always an interesting challenge to capture a unique likeness”.
From childhood Lindsay has had an interest in drawing particularly faces. This exhibition showcases some of her portrait work and captures quite moments of relfection in the sitters. Lindsay’s work for the exhibition will include a mixed media range of pen and wash, graphite, coloured pencil and wax crayon.
Bretforton Photographer, Hazel Tyrell captures the real beauty of nature and everyday life through lighting and composition. Her photographs are a joy to look at and reflect her excitement in exploring "life" whether this is on the ground or in the air!
Watercolour painter Julie Smith enjoys exploring the detail of her art. Julie’s inspiration comes from many places, flowers and nature, landscapes, people she meets, even bits of stone or wood. A camera is never far from her hands and she works from photos in her "shed studio" translating snapshots into characteristically detailed watercolour paintings.
“To see something you have made light up when the sun shines through the wonderful colours and textures is an absolute joy”.
Wendy Stafford owner of The Art Pad, is a self-taught stained and fused glass artist. Starting with traditional stained glass she has now moved on to fused and painted glass. She combines her skill and love of painting and drawing with that of beautiful glass and is often inspired by nature.
