Golden Moments- Beth Pope
26th April -1st July 2015, The Longwall and Barside Space
Working from memory and photographs artist Bethany Pope creates stunning paintings of skies and landscapes pinpointing those golden moments of awareness and joy. Beth's work focuses on distilling emotion and has often represented negative thinking with darkness and awareness as light, similar to the ever changing landscape of the sky. Her works are inspired by walking both locally and in Perranporth.
"Making paintings gives me more time that I can be without thought. Time to be totally immersed. Hopefully these works will remind others to do the same and make the most of those golden moments of happiness and peace."

John Dix -An Exploration of Beauty and Grace
26th August- 26th October 2015, The Longwall & Barside Space
Not being a dancer myself, I have always been fascinated by the beauty and grace show by those who can dance. I find the poses and shapes that dancers make with their bodies to be beautiful, especially ballet dancers.
Having come to the end of my twenties and about to enter my thirties, I have decided to continue to practice the skills that have become my passion.
Coming from an artistic family, I have studied art since I was small, continuing into my A-levels and degree with my most influential art teacher being my father who still continues to teach me new techniques today.
However, upon leaving university and entering the real world, it seemed that the time I had to draw and paint diminished considerably.
It was not until moving to Evesham and joining Evesham Operatic and Drama Society that I found myself in a creative environment once again, with many talented friends willing to help me with my artistic goals by modelling for me in ballet poses for use in this exhibition.
It is therefore my intention for this exhibition to showcase my latest endeavours in art accurately portraying the graceful poses of ballet dancers in oils on canvas.
