Saturday 16th - Monday 25th June 2018

Kaye Anna Law

Kaye's interest in art began in senior school where she spent most of her time in the Art Room painting or in the Needlework Room producing collages which she won prizes for, particularly for her artwork.

After leaving school Kaye worked as a sewing machinist, sewing Jackets and skirts and then went to work for a medieval touring company in wardrobe where she had the opportunity to design some of the costumes and travelled around the world.

It wasn't until years later that she had the opportunity to study art. It was in 1994 that she studied art and design at the Oxfordshire Polytechnic in Oxford, through the Open College of Arts. She then went on to study sculpture and textiles at Amersham and Wycombe College in Buckinghamshire.

Being a natural born psychic medium clairvoyant, she found her paintings where being produced from visions she was receiving and now works as a visionary artist. Kaye now combines both her artistic talent with her spiritual side and paints spiritual and mystical artwork, to help others on their own spiritual journey's.

Kaye's Mystical Artwork takes you on a magical journey into the mystical world of faeries, unicorns, butterflies, dragons and more...

Her pictures are painted in acrylic on canvase and some of her artwork drawn in soft pastels on good quality pastel paper, both provide you with the soft texture, feelings and meaning in each picture.

Sasha Chaitow

Saturday 14th - Monday 23rd October 2017

I have wrestled with the angel and I am stained with light and I have no shame.

~ Mary Oliver, Power and Time,’ Blue Pastures, 1997 ~

Several strands of inspiration form the “Stained by the Light” collection: the notion of metamorphosis, initiation, and the regenerative power of nature; antique and emblematic symbolism; sacred words and symbolic languages, heavily influenced by the subversive power of street art.

In a time of uncertainty, confusion, and change with invisible ends, these compositions reflect the ambivalence of adapting to such times and the possibility of both success and failure embedded within it. The darkness of many of the images is the subterranean place of gestation; the alchemical nigredo; the chaos before order of one kind or another emerges. This is how the darkness is irrevocably stained by the light, and these images are the result.

Each painting is a narrative inviting the viewer into a dialogue, so that we may share an exploration of the timeless, but also current themes in the paintings. The human form is the base for most of the compositions, and its position, posture, or action reflects the essence of the transformation that is at hand or under way. The images – or lettering -layered on top, is often a clear key to the meanings locked within. A contrasting motif, either in the form of ancient lettering (accurately rendered words and phrases in their original tongue) or in the shape of an animal or floral design, breaks through the darkness and “stains” it with colour and light, reflecting the message that nature, spirit, and the narratives of collective memory can transform the gloom into beauty with human creativity as a driving force.

Exhibited in Corfu, Greece, during May/June 2017, this expanded version of “Stained by the Light” is Sasha’s 11th solo exhibition.

From Sasha’s studio: Making the “Stained by the Light” collection and explaining the thinking and symbolism behind the paintings.

Stained by the Light 2017 is Sasha Chaitow’s new solo exhibition of neosymbolist art, accompanied by music written for the paintings, and a one-day symposium of talks by scholars and artists “Art = Praxis”.

Central to the exhibition and symposium concept is the idea that works of art can become dynamic, living entities, capable of transforming the viewer, who is the final link in the creative circuit. This idea draws on an ancient tradition, as well as the modern slow art movement. The art has been deliberately designed as an experiential narrative journey that is only completed when the visitor engages mindfully with the art. This is a two-way transformational process; the art only acquires meaning in the presence of a spectator, while by engaging with the symbolic narratives and unlocking meaning within them, a transformation occurs within the viewer.

This process is the meaning of “praxis”, and the symposium presentations are dedicated to exploring the transformational power of the creative process, from experiential, scholarly, historical and philosophical perspectives.

Neill Lowden

Saturday 30th September - Monday 9th October 2017

A fabulous exhibition of Landsapes and Still Lifes.  These pictures do not due them justice, their colours just sing out from their canvasses.

Neill Lowdon studied a L’ecole des Beaux Arts in Orléans and Falmouth School of Art. He won the David Murray Painting Prize from the Royal Academy of Arts and with the prize money painted at Santiago de Compostella.

He has paintedin countries such as Portugal, Greece, Morocco, Iceland, Greenland, America, Mexico, Venezuela and Madiera.

Princess Zissi Bentheim exhibited and sold his pastels on two occasions in her castle in Germany.

Neill has painted solidly for 37 years since graduating. Because of his epilepsy, he has had to cycle over 100,000 miles to reach his chosen outdoor painting subjects. He paints exclusively from life and has found moving to Somerset a real aid to his work and thinking.

Flying Monkeys and Guardian Angels - what's your story?

Saturday 3rd - Monday 12th June 2017

We all have our own story, our life’s experiences, hopes and dreams. Yet, as humans we have the amazing ability to rewrite our own story, to come to terms with painful experiences, to make sense out of the seemingly random events. Ultimately we can give meaning to our own path and turn it into a story of success, and even the most painful experiences can turn into valuable lessons learned.
Storytelling and creativity are two ancient ways to relate to life and understand life’s journey.
Come and join me in this exhibition into your own story!
I invite you to meet archetypes of our shared and individual stories. Mirrors will ask you questions, leading into your inner journey, with sculptures of fantastical creatures greeting you in the outer world and images reflecting some lessons back to you, in the hope we have learned them this time around.
So, what’s YOUR story?
