June 18th - 24th Young Rotary Art Exhibition
Exhibition of Papier Mache Art at Gallery at 12
from 4th - 31st of March 2017
Over the last years Tina has mainly produced small figures from wire, cardboard, newspaper and glue, all with a hint of humour and quirkiness.
This exhibition is different and called "Experiments" as Tina branches out using a new material called Paper Clay, and also produces some larger pieces using the "traditional" paper strip layer method to express herself, and brings to live inspirations from home life and weekend visits to North Wales, as well as her usual quirky figures on a different scale.
The display will be showing all the talented winners who entred the
Rotary Young Artists Competition,
which took place earlier this year.

April 2017Textiles by Jo Hill
Jo is best known
for her luxury textile pieces featuring beautifully stitched birds, hares and
landscapes. You will be able to view and buy a specially selected range of
Jo's work throughout April at the gallery.
This exhibition is called
'From Original to Print' and will feature a brand new range of British wildlife
designs, including a range of printed homewares such as cushions,
wall canvasses and lampshades. This is the official launch of these lovely new
products and Jo is looking forward to showing them to the public.
You will be able to view both the homewares and the
luxury original textiles that inspired them; everything on display will be
available to buy, order or commission. All of Jo's work celebrates the
diversity of British wildlife and almost every piece of work has been
especially created for this exhibition.
This month's exhibition is by a visiting artist, Ron Satterthwaite.
Ron is a self taught artist living in Codsall near Wolverhampton. He paints portraits, landscapes and life studies, but his overriding passion is portraiture.
In the early nineties he had a series of one man exhibitions at Walsall, Wednesbury and Wolverhampton art galleries and since then a series of smaller shows around the region, as well as a couple of group exhibitions.
We look forward to seeing his work in our exhibition space upstairs.
The Exhibition will run to the end of March
