MAURICE COCKRILL - From the Artist's Studios

8th to 31st October 2016

Maurice Cockrill is frequently referred to as a 'painter's painter'. We see this as meaning to possess an inherent feeling for, and joy in, the use of paint directly as an expressive medium. This includes a love for 'picture-making' and a deep knowledge and understanding of the history of this most ancient form of art. Finally, a 'painter's painter' has the desire to share these qualities and discoveries with other artists, especially students of painting. Maurice meets all of these criteria.

We have been fortunate in having included paintings by Maurice in exhibitions over the years. It is with great pleasure that we have assembled this group of work, in close association with Waterhouse and Dodd who administer the artist's estate, to present an overview of some of the key aspects of the artist's oeuvre.

DAVID GARLAND - Studio Ceramics

8th to 31st October 2016

A selection of ceramics from the artist's studio. David Garland combines a painter's sensibility of colour with the potter's grasp of form and a sculptor's feeling for space. The pots are restrained in shape and decoration yet contain an expressiveness that is universally human. David Garland works mainly with red earthenware clay, sometimes slipped and painted with coloured oxides - cobalt, manganese, copper and iron.

SARAH POLAND - The Intimacy Of Liminal Spaces

SARAH POLAND - The Intimacy Of Liminal Spaces

5th to 28th November 2016

Sarah Poland moved from Cornwall to Wales in 2011 shortly after her last one-person exhibition with the gallery in 2010. Part of the artist's time was spent living off-grid in an Oak woodland. The works selected for this exhibition include drawings, prints and paintings all of which relate in one way or another to the natural environment experienced during this period by the artist. It is interesting to see how the change in surroundings, together with an intensive period of study at Aberystwyth School of Art, has effected the artist's working methods.
