13th July - 1st September 2012
A collection of paintings and ceramics to celebrate summer through the richness of landscape, wildlife and cafe culture.
This latest series of paintings by Mike Service focuses on views of Bath from its surrounding hills and valleys, a subject that Mike has been concentrating on for the last six months. Sally Stafford's new work includes her landscape paintings of meadows and forests as well as a preview of her latest series playing with the theme islands. Brian Dennington captures moments in time from our rich cafe culture and George Morgan examines the space around us with sensitivity and humour. Boo Mallinson and introducing Tessa Houghton, both artists experiment with the materiality of paint, abstracting the figurative with quiet elegance.
We introduce ceramicists Anna Barlow and Susan O'Byrne - Anna provides a delicious palette of ceramic ice creams, real enough to make you reach out and take one. Susan's sea birds capture the essence of summer and our natural heritage.
