  • Lumiere: the beautiful light

    • Saturday, 10 November 2018 - Saturday, 5 January 2019 at 10:00 - 17:00
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free

    Irresistible hand-crafted lighting and illuminated artworks make a wonderful festive statement this season. We explore all facets of lighting where sculpture, colour and form meet.

    Hannah_Nunn_Lamps_153Our intimate Balcony Gallery will be full to the rafters with beautiful pieces which can easily fit into home environments. We are careful to note the power of light as a medium in its own right, where light and shade create shadows and the colour and textures of shadow shifting with each piece create physically powerful works that take on the appearance of sculptural forms in space.

    Visitors are encouraged to move freely around the space to take the lighting pieces in from all angles.

    Presenting pieces by: Clio Anastasiou, Nichola Bendall - Words Ink, Dobby and Rose, Liv Cornall, Adele Goulty, Denis di Luca, Hannah Nunn, Liz Scrine, Surrey Woodsmiths and Meryl Till.
