Katharine Honey and Sally Robson

fully open for the two weekends 17th/18th and 24th/25th

11.00 am to 6.00 pm

Katharine Honey studied painting and stained glass at Wimbledon School of Art, later becoming interested in the making and designing of modern jewellery.   Working mostly in silver and using semi-precious stones the work emphasises colour and texture, sometimes within an abstract form.   Forging, reticulation and etching can be involved together with the interest in making pieces with fluid flexible movement.

Sally Robson studied illustration at the Central School of Art with John Burningham and Gertrude Hermes. On leaving the Central she worked as a designer of book jackets and publicity for a London publisher.

In the 1980s she joined the Greenwich Printmakers Association creating etchings and linocuts, exhibiting widely with the group in the UK and abroad and independently including the Royal Academy.

She has work in the Greenwich Print Library and is an invited contributor in the Encyclopaedia of Printmaking Techniques. She is now focussing on painting and developing ideas towards abstraction.

Recently Sally has been working in acrylic, layering colour and mark making to build up rich textures.

'Lost and Found'

Collagraph prints, etchings, monotypes, printed casts, assemblages

Saturday 1st May to Sunday 16th May

weekends only   11.00 am to 6.00 pm

The title of this collection of works, ’Lost and Found’, refers to a sense of dislocation, lost narratives, landscapes, and memory which can be distorted or changed by the passage of time, distance and feeling. I experiment with found objects, recycled materials, printmaking, papermaking, casting and clay to discover gestural and expressive forms. I am interested in materiality, surface qualities and sculptural processes. My work is process led. I have found the processes of collagraph printmaking and papermaking from recycled materials can capture experience, transform, and restore. I am interested in forces and tensions, resilience fragility, absorption, and states of mind.

My background as a theatre designer, followed by my training and experience as an art psychotherapist, psychoanalytic psychotherapist and printmaker have informed my interest in communicating psychological elements in my work. I have recently completed an MA Printmaking at Camberwell College of Arts, UAL.

Alexandra Robb & Amanda Taylor

'Fragile Nature' 

Saturday 5th June  to Sunday 20th June

weekends only  11.00 am to 6.00 pm 

'Fragile Nature’ is a joint exhibition between printmakers Alexandra Robb and Amanda Taylor. Both artists use the natural world, its plants, trees, landscapes and wildlife, many of which are under threat from the behaviour of humankind, including the ravages of climate change as an enduring inspiration for their work.

This show includes Amanda’s reduction lino prints and collagraphs and Alexandra’s lino prints, drawings, paintings and print assemblages .Both artists will be showing a number of wood engravings, a shared passion that they feel can render the detail of natural forms in a way that no other medium can.

Amanda has been a printmaker for 19 years having studied at London College of Printing and practices both at home and with the East London printmakers.

Alexandra worked for many years in the field of nature conservation also working as a wildlife illustrator. She now practices her art from home, still undertaking commissions as well as developing her own work.

 

Angela Brookes

'The Light Fantastic' 

Saturday 25th June to Sunday 11thJuly 2021

weekends only  11.00 am to 6.00 pm

In ‘The Light Fantastic’, Angela will be showing her prints that explore and celebrate the infinite visual opportunities presented by the natural world.  Landscapes, seascapes and huge skies are favourite topics and she is fascinated by the ever changing effects of light at different times of the day, and as the seasons progress through the year.    “I depict what I see around me, and I draw on deep memories of my rural upbringing, but sometimes it is just a glimpse from a train window that provides inspiration.”
