Saturday 9th until Sunday 24th June daily 11am – 5pm Thursdays 11am-8.30 pm
In June each year artist Frank Taylor and his wife Christine open their beautiful home and garden to show a varied collection of paintings, prints, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles and jewellery. They choose works by artists they admire, and whose work is rarely shown in the South East. Some are artists of international reputation, all are highly respected within their own field
This summer’s show includes the work of several favourite previous exhibitors including eminent ceramic sculptors John Maltby and Anthony Theakston, potters Pru Green, Kevin Warren, Christine Bull and Lise B Moorcroft (daughter of Walter and grand daughter of William), Somerset sculptor George Hider, Zimbabwean stone sculptors Dominic Benhura and Nesbert Mukomberanwa, Yorkshire sculptors Steve Blaylock and Darrell Evanes, as well as jewellers Roger Elliott, Jane Angel and the Cloud 9 group.
There are also several exciting new exhibitors.
Daniel Glover is fascinated with our unique British coastline and its surrounding landscape. He seeks to capture the essence of a place or landscape through colour and composition and in doing so produces stunning and very individual paintings.
Keith Morton combines painting with teaching, specialising in still life and portraiture. As a portrait painter, his most famous sitters to date have been the jazz pianist and composer Stan Tracey OBE and the actress Siobhan Redmond. Keith will be showing a selection of his exceptional still life paintings.
John Moore, the award winning contemporary jewellery artist based in Brighton, will be showing his unique pieces of wearable sculpture made from brightly coloured aluminium, silver and steel.
Penny Fowler works with porcelain and bone china to create work which is characterised by beautiful dynamic forms with clean, precise lines. She uses a strong palette and aims to reflect 21st century London living.
Jane Silk works in ceramic producing abstract and bird sculptures as well as functional pots. Jane’s bird forms attempt to capture the spirit of the individual, often humorous, almost human, by the exaggeration and emphasis of their features.
