Sadly today, August 27th 2016, will be our last day at the lovely Barnfield Crescent Gallery. The past 18 months has been really special for us with fantastic exhibitions, great events and lots of new friends! Thank you for your support and we look forward to sharing details of our continuing journey...
Moor to Sea at Budleigh Salterton
15th September - 30th October 2016
Alan Cotton, one of the most revered artists in our midst, was invited by the Brook Gallery to select a body of work from artists across the UK known for their love and portrayal of the West Country. From the sandy beaches of Dorset, to the creeks and inlets of Devon, viaSomerset's high cliffs and Cornwall's secluded coves, the West Country landscape is as diverse as it is long, as portrayed by the varied artist styles included in Moor to Sea.
Current Exhibition: Grosvenor Inspired Exhibition
15th July - 28th August 2016
The British Grosvenor School of Modern Art was opened in 1925 by Claude Flight and Iain MacNab. Flight taught the art of lino-cutting and MacNab taught wood engraving.
Claude Flight taught students to produce multi-colour linocut prints by using different blocks for each colour. Flight’s work celebrated the speed, movement and hustle of modern life in the 1920s and 30s, with dominant themes of sport and transport. Many contemporary artists attempt to capture the essence of the Grosvenor School by producing these incredibly complex and angular linocuts, few however succeed in the way that Paul Cleden, Lisa Takahashi and Andrew Pavitt do. Their prints notably capture the spirit of the genre whilst putting their own individual styling and nuances into the work.
