Who We Are
ABOUT THE GALLERY
White Box is a community art gallery space for selected artists to show their work. It is intended as a focus of interest for the people of Blackheath and for the wider world of art enthusiasts. We select a broad spectrum of art practices, something different from exhibition to exhibition, by committed artists. Prints, sculpture, painting, ceramics, performance and photographic works have all been hosted at White Box. The Gallery is run by Frances and Graham High who are themselves practising artists.

David Barron is a painter/printmaker based in South Wales, with a studio overlooking Swansea Bay, where the ever changing light is a continual inspiration. For David drawing is both a passion and an essential practice; an ongoing visual commentary on daily life, either from direct observation or sometimes from memory. This exhibition reveals the relationships between painting and print, where colour, tone and drawing are key elements. The paintings and prints capture the visual rhythms of shape, form, colour and pattern found in everyday objects, spaces and places. Subjects include garden corners, street scenes and everyday objects (fruit, flowers and fish, pots, pans, mugs and jugs). The original prints included explore an exciting range of printmaking methods such as drypoint, etching, aquatint, woodcut and linocut.
David Barron has worked as a painter, printmaker and teacher for over sixty years. Born in London in 1938, he studied painting, printmaking and illustration at Saint Martins School of Art and Goldsmiths. David has lived and worked in Wales since the mid-60s, when he set up the Foundation Course in Art and Design at Swansea College of Art (now The University of Wales Trinity Saint David). He is an Academician of The Royal Cambrian Academy and a member of Swansea Printmakers, exhibiting regularly with these groups.
