The opening of a certain exhibition...I may have mentioned... happens in just under five days time. The work began arriving today at The Old Brick Workshop and needless to say I'm excited! Here are a few sneak previews of what to expect as well as our official press release.
The fascinating world of ‘THE REMARKABLE EVERYDAY’ is explored in a new, contemporary art exhibition at The Old Brick Workshop Gallery in Higher Poole, Wellington Somerset. TA21 9HW.
Featuring work by nine artists living and working in Somerset, the exhibition has been inspired and organised by artist and bookseller, Natalie Parsley whose own enthusiasm and love of seemingly banal everyday subjects led her to gather together a group of like-minded fellow artists to share her passion with their own views of both the commonplace and the curious in drawing, painting, print making and 3D work.
The show has work by Jenny Barron, Andrew Davey, Faye Dennis, Gordon Faulds, Gordon Field, Liz Gregory, Natalie Parsley, Michael Tarr and Scarlet von Teazel. Working with subjects such as tools, ladders, discarded boxes, old utensils and modern technology has led the participants to create some quirky and mysterious compositions, constructions and installations.
This is the first group show this year at The Old Brick Workshop which houses a new gallery space and a set of self contained studios, created by owner Alison Cosserat for use by Somerset artists.
The event is sponsored by local business West Country Foods of Wellington and will be open from 11am until 4.30 from Sunday 19th June to Saturday 9th July, closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
You can expect more info, images and reflections on the exhibition from myself, here on the blog over the course of the next few weeks.
One thing is assured...There will be tools!
I look forward to seeing you there!
