Latest Exhibition

Louise Davies and Vivienne Sillar

14th April to 27th May

This exhibition is the turn of artist and print maker Louise Davies and ceramicist Vivienne Sillar. Louise combines printmaking and painting as her two main focuses for her studio practice.
Her landscape paintings explore depth and colour which we are looking forward to exploring here. Vivienne uses the fluid, streamlined shapes of creatures of the sea for her growing inspiration.  Soft tones from the smoke fired pieces lend themselves to the land from where they were conceived on the Isle of Arran where she stays often.

 
 
 

Artist of the Month: April

Corrina Rothwell

Corrina is an artist, illustrator and greeting card publisher based here in Nottingham.
Her images depict everyday scenarios (eating cheese, putting on make-up) and she infuses them with a quirky, off-beat humour. Words are an integral part of the humour in these designs, and her images bring to life puns and revolve around wordplay. If you can hear someone giggling from across the gallery you can guess they've spotted one of Corrina's witty, relatable cards.
Colour is also a really important element of her work and her joy in using unusual combinations is evident in the cheeky, characterful cats that are on show here at the gallery. 
Her philosophy is one that resonates with us at the gallery, one of 'connecting with people and hopefully providing them with a little burst of recognition and laughter'.
