  • Emma Dunbar: Colour in the Snow

    • Saturday, 12 January 2019 - Saturday, 23 February 2019 at 10:00 - 17:00
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free

    We are delighted to welcome back Emma Dunbar's vibrant and dynamic paintings for a much anticipated solo show.

    Emma_Dunbar__Snowdrops_from_a_snowy_woodWhile Emma's show will feature all seasons, for the first time, Emma has prepared a substantial new body of work, exploring colour in the show, making this show a special treat to our collectors and art lovers. The exhibition also explores the joyful richness of the everyday.

    Emma gathers ingredients from her home, travels, the landscape, combining pattern and familiarity to create colourful and recognisable paintings. Her attraction to colour and the decorative qualities in everyday objects provide the foundation for her art while her training as a printmaker is evident both in the use of blocks of flat colour and in the way she scratches through surfaces to reveal pre-laid colours underneath.

    At the same time in the gallery, we feature the decorative ceramics by Ken Eardley. Ken's colour and patterns focus on brightening up any kitchen and interior, bringing vibrancy into the everyday. They enter into a dialogue with Emma's work.

    Gallery opening times: Tuesday to Saturday, 10am-5pm | Closed on Mondays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.

  • Peter Hayes: Fire, Earth Water - Evolving Ceramics

    • Saturday, 12 January 2019 - Saturday, 23 February 2019 at 10:00 - 17:00
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free

    We are delighted to welcome back Peter Hayes, the internationally-renowned sculptor and ceramicist working in Bath.

    Peter_Hayes_Standing_StoneThe distinctive organic appearance of Peter Hayes' work builds on the techniques and methods he learned throughout his extensive travels in Africa, India, Asia and New Mexico. Peter is drawn to the shapes of artefacts from other cultures and times that remain timeless.

    Moreover, from his early introduction to ceramics on archaeological digs, Peter has been interested in the process of change and evolvement in objects: his work does not compete with nature; but evolves within the environment.

    For example, the introduction of minerals into the ceramic surface such as iron and copper with the elements of time and erosion, creates unique pieces that take on their own developing surface. Similarly, the individual character of materials, from ceramic, glass and stone expose both limitations and tolerance. As Peter says, each individual piece takes on its own developing surface; its own history and its own aesthetic.

    Opening hours Tuesday to Saturday: 10am-5pm | Closed on Mondays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
