  • 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.

    It's like a beer festival - but with whiskey and cocktails!

    Haslemere__19_flyer

    Do you enjoy whiskey? Would you like to discover more about it, but don't know where to start? Do you like music? Do you like fun? The Whiskey Affair is for you if you answered 'Yes!' to any of these questions.

    We are returning to Haslemere and delighted to be coming back. We are packing the room with three types of whiskey for you to try out to your heart's content:

    Scotch: The best from Scottish whisky distilleries- from the well known to the smaller independents that you are going to fall in love with.

    Bourbon: America's finest bourbons are here to show you what they can offer. Flavoured and packed with variety!

    Worldwide Whiskey: Here is where you may discover a whiskey from the Netherlands, Sweden, Taiwan and Japan that you never knew existed!

    Cocktails: Is everyone you know coming but you're not sure about whiskey? Don't worry: kick back with a cocktail and join in without a serious commitment. You can join in the fun, but don't need to be a connoisseur!

    Upon arrival you will be handed your Whiskey Affair glass (you can keep this!) and a brochure packed full of information on the brands - a good reference point for you to see which your new favourites will be.

    There will be free access to our special app too, where you can find all the brochure information, vote on your favourite brands and get links to our retail partners. You will need drinks tokens to buy the whisk(e)y which will be available at the entrance table.

    These are sold in cards of five for £20 - you are welcome to share a card between however many people you like, there are no restrictions. 95% of the brands are one token each but we are lucky enough to have some really rare bottles which are priced at two tokens, and these are clearly marked before you want to sample.

    Throughout the event there will be live entertainment; whiskey experts on hand to chat to; samples from showcasing brands; food available to buy and lots of like-minded people to mingle with. We have a photo booth for you to let your hair down and all photos are free of charge to take home with you as a memento.

    Visit our website to check out more details about the brands and the entertainment, and prepare yourself for a memorable night out.

    Live music sets will be there to entertain you and our photobooth will be there too. Can't wait!
