Spring and Sunshine at
Spring is definitely in the air and we have a lot of inspiring work for you to enjoy at Shoreham Art Gallery from April onwards created by our Gallery members and a wide range of fabulous guest artists.
Sarah Dudley was April’s special Guest Artist. Sarah creates quirky textile characters taking her inspiration from the wildlife in the English countryside, including the foxes, mice, birds and badgers that regularly visit her garden in West Sussex.
Another real treat is Teresa Martin’s solo exhibition of sculpture in the upstairs Gallery space. Teresa has been creatively casting stunning sculptures in various durable materials such as metal and stone resins. Organic forms and dynamic textures are a constant theme. Teresa’s work is also displayed in the Gallery’s Sculpture garden. You can read more about Teresa’s interesting processes on the gallery blog.
In May ceramist Jola Spytkowska returns to the Gallery as our Guest Artist. Jola is well known for her humorous ceramic creatures, mini beasts, planters and ‘Bags of Character’ that she creates in her London studio. Her work is always very popular and is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
Amazing glass artist Rebecca Rowland-Chandler will be exhibiting as June’s Guest Artist. Rebecca creates objects of beauty that allude to the natural world, researching structural and decorative elements that combine the organic with the geometric. Often inspired by her travels and the landscape, her glasswork celebrates the colour and light of spring and summertime. Perfect for this time of year.
Although we have continued with online events and window exhibitions during lockdown we are really looking forward to welcoming visitors back to see all the artwork that our artists and makers have been creating; fused and stained glass, textiles and turned wood, photographs, prints and paintings, as well as beautifully crafted jewellery.
All the artwork at the Gallery is very reasonably priced and there is a wide range of original work for everyone to enjoy at home and in the garden. And if there is something you can’t see, many of the artists take on commissions making bespoke pieces.
