Saturday October 10th to Sunday November 1st
Open at weekends only from 11.00 am to 6.00 pm
Evocative and atmospheric paintings of the local landscape and of the river Thames which has formed so much of the historical character of Greenwich. Wonderful light; wonderful brushwork from this well known painter
Graham High : New Sculpture
Saturday 7th November to Sunday 29th November
weekends only: 11.00am to 6.00 pm
The two sculptures shown above, 'OPENING' on the left and 'NURTURE' on the right, are examples of a new series of abstract sculptures that take as their theme birth, organic growth and procreation. Ranging in resonance from the visceral to the spiritual they evoke aspects of the body under change, stress and fruitful growth. The works embody organic process in their form and in their method of development. The examples on show include pieces cast in foundry bronze, gypsum, and larger works in marble laminate over milled PU 100 high density foam.
Holly Stevenson& Anja Lubach : Ceramics
'Thanks a Pot'
Saturday 5th December to Sunday 20th DEcember
weekends only: 11.00am to 6.00 pm
We are pleased to present 'Thanks A Pot', an exhibition that reflects on the ceramic practices of Anja Lubach and Holly Stevenson and their friendship through clay. Anja Lubach studied ceramics at the Royal College of Art and her widely exhibited work explores the smooth, translucent and pure material properties of porcelain through experimental manipulation of the soft clay surface. Holly Stevenson gained an MFA from Chelsea College of Art and Design before studying ceramics under Anja Lubach at Greenwich Community College. Her brightly glazed sculptural ceramics explore how shape and colour suggest embodied psychologically charged narratives. Both artists are local and have shown their work nationally and internationally.
LOOKING FORWARD TO 2021
Dates to be confirmed
Katharine Honey and
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. Two examples of her work are shown below.
Sally Robson shows a retrospective selection of work from when she left the Central School of Art to her current paintings. Sally’s first employment was working as a designer of book jackets and publicity for a London publisher. After marriage and two sons, she became interested in sculpture, working in clay from the figure and completed several commissions during this time. In the 1980s she joined the Greenwich Printmakers' Association producing etchings and linocuts, exhibiting widely with the group as well as independently, including at the Royal Academy. After twenty-one years with the GPA she wanted to concentrate on painting and has been working in oils and acrylic, some figurative, but more recently, abstract shapes and colour with gardens and landscapes in mind.
SOMETIME IN 2021
'The Light Fantastic'
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.”
