Two new exhibitions feature in the Upper and Lower Galleries this September from two artists working in print, mixed media and paint.
Claire Cockayne – Upper Gallery I live and work in the Fens in East Anglia. With such beautiful surroundings on my doorstep, natural form is a primary source of inspiration for me. I work intuitively and allow the element of chance to play a key role in my prints whilst I manipulate the process. When a situation hits me strongly, I remember everything about it. When a situation hits me strongly, I remember everything about it. I then try to recapture the place, memory and feelings in drawings and photographs of my surroundings. These images can become more abstract through the process of screenprinting and stitch. I like to work in a free and experimental way, creating images incorporating pattern, still life and natural forms. Mac Gregory – Lower Gallery
Mac developed his style of stretched landscapes in the 1950’s and 1960’s, echoing the horizons of the fens and his interest in old, panoramic photography.
On canvas, he revels in the romanticism of flat, open spaces around the Fens and seas around his Lincolnshire home. Mac brings elements together in his studio, creating new landscapes and moods from a vivid palette of colours.
Please see website for details on the gallery, restaurant and opening times. Free entry, everyday, for everyone.
