Private View Of Textures, Traces & Elements

We are all really pleased with the exhibition. It was yet again a lovely day for the P.V. we could sit outside in the courtyard amongst the rose bushes, rosemary and lavender. There were lots of visitors to the walks and some joined use. Our visitors enjoyed the ambiance of the gallery and of cause the food and drink.

Textures, Traces & Elements

I have been at the Beyond the Image, hanging the Textures, Traces & Elements. exhibition with Jazz, Carol and Angie Broadberry a photographer and exhibition coordinator from the gallery. Angie's help and advise was invaluable after hard work and deliberation the exhibition has come together really well; The gallery is brilliant and we would be delighted if you would join us at the P.v. on Saturday or visit during the course of the exhibition; I will be sitting in the gallery on Fri July29th.

You are warmly invited to the Private View on Saturday, 3rd July 2010, 12 noon to 2pm of a new art exhibition at Beyond the Image Gallery:

An exhibition of mixed media paintings, collagraph prints, ceramics & textiles by three Suffolk artists: Hazel Bignell, Jazz Green & Carol Pask.

These three artists respond very differently and uniquely in imagery, process and materials to the East Anglian landscape. Hazel Bignell incorporates collage, painting and mixed media on canvas, inspired by time spent at the coast – of pebbles, eroded cliffs, waterlines and shadows. Jazz Green zooms in on the overlooked details of the rural landscape, the ephemeral traces of weathering on neglected outbuildings, the myriad colours of rust, mould and lichens, which are subtly distilled into contemplative, minimalist abstract works on canvas and paper. Carol Pask is an established ceramicist best known for her raku and smoke-fired pots, who also works in sculpture and textiles. Carol’s work is also abstracted from the natural environment, with an emphasis on organic structures and natural textures and colours. When seen together, the work of these three artists introduce a fresh and contemporary perspective on art and the landscape.

Beyond the Image Gallery is a contemporary exhibition space located within the beautiful setting of the Thornham Estate, conveniently situated just of the A140, midway between Ipswich and Norwich. The Thornham Estate also includes twelve miles of waymarked footpaths through naturalised meadow and woodland, known as the Thornham Walks. Together with designated picnic areas, a traditional walled garden, an information centre and a cafe, it makes a visit to the Thornham Estate a very enjoyable and relaxing day out for all the family.
TEXTURES, TRACES & ELEMENTS at Beyond the Image is open Friday to Sunday, 11am-4pm, from the 2nd July to 1st August 2010.
