An Open Exhibition of Photography

The theme of this exhibition is straightforward; participants were invited to take a photograph that highlights a part of Sleaford – a building, a structure or an aspect of everyday life – that goes unnoticed by the casual observer.  Ideally the photograph to be taken from within the centre of Sleaford but consideration also given to extraordinary pictures taken outside this area with the proviso it was within the Sleaford district.

Over 150 entries were received and these entries were narrowed down by a panel of three judges to about sixty photographs which have been professionally printed and mounted to form this two-week exhibition in the Carre Gallery.

The Judges were Lucy Lumb – representing artsNK who has given support to this project, Martin Cameron – a professional photographer and director of the Sleaford Gallery Arts Trust, and Russ Mathieson – representative of the Civic Trust who proposed and is jointly sponsoring this competition.

Prize winners will be announced at the presentation evening in the second week of the exhibition with results posted on this blog.

The exhibition is open from 10 am – 4pm every day (except Sunday) until Saturday 17 June.

An exhibition by Anne Barnham and Robin Hall

Hall_Barnham_550

Anne Barnham

Anne originally comes from Cumberland but now loves living in Lincolnshire. She paints open landscape scenes, rivers, old buildings, boats and much in between.

ABarnham_TheLamp_550The skies and views here are an absolute delight, especially to a countryside-loving artist like myself.

I started painting later in life with help from many artists, including Peter Hayward from Timberland. I have attended courses with artists whose style I feel compliments my own, a desire to encapsulate the essence of a view.

I have painted in many different places, both in England and abroad, as much as possible on the spot, but if not then from my own sketches, photos and observation. I undertake commissions, either from photographs or the actual place. My paintings are hanging in collections in many parts of Australia, New Zealand, Europe and USA. (Mr. Trump hasn’t got one yet!)

I think it is very necessary to capture the atmosphere and feeling of a place. My paintings reflect this with the idea that you could ‘walk into’ the scene, they are varied and interesting with wonderfully strong and harmonious colours.

I enjoy selecting my paintings for an exhibition, there are a number of local views as well as some with a little difference! More paintings can be seen at my Studio in Digby, you are very welcome to come and visit.”

ABarnham_TheLockAtHaverholme_550Anne has been given several awards, including The Carre Gallery Award in the 2015 Summer Exhibition, and she was selected to be a wild card in the Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2016. Unfortunately she was unable to take up the prestigious offer because of prior commitments. She is entering again this year.

Anne is also Chair of the Sleaford Art Group, a member of The Shelford Group of Artists, an Ambassador for SAA paints and a Professional Associate of the Society of All Artists. She does workshops and demonstrations for local Art Groups, give talks to WI and Ladies groups and teaches art on the Cruise Liners.

Robin Hall

Robin is a Sleaford-based artist who paints mostly landscapes inspired by the Lincolnshire countryside. Born in Sleaford, he attended York College of Arts and Technology where he attained a BTEC National Diploma in General Art and Design. He then went to Coventry University where he graduated with a degree in Graphic Design. Robin has also studied calligraphy with the Open College for the Arts, watercolour with Christine Burnett at her studio in Grantham, and drawing with well-known SAA art tutor and author Trudy Friend.

RHall_AtTheFieldsEdge2_550“My half of the exhibition with Anne features work created over roughly a seven month period. I can definitely say that my contribution to the exhibition is the unseen bit! Despite my work having mostly an imaginary style, my paintings are inspired very much by the Landscape, especially the Lincolnshire landscape.  Skies, trees, hedgerows, cow parsley, sheep, and colourful yellow fields have all inspired the various paintings I am exhibiting. I have used a variety of media to create the images for this exhibition including watercolour, coloured pencil, mixed media, acrylic inks, and watercolour pencils.”

RHall_GrazingSheepNearRauceby_550In 2013 Robin won the Carre Gallery Award for his painting Sunset at Silk Willoughby and his paintings were used in 2016 as part of a presentation for the Lincolnshire Environmental Award about Mareham Pastures.  Robin, a member of the SAA, also teaches painting on Wednesday afternoons at The Source in Sleaford.

The exhibition is open from 10 am – 4 pm every day until Saturday 03 June. (Closed on Sunday.)

NB: OPEN on Bank Holiday Monday 29 May.

An exhibition is support of Sleaford Live 2017

Somersby_550This year’s theme is Lincolnshire.  This exhibition has a range of artworks, mainly landscapes but with a few surprises.  We have paintings, photographs and even a cleverly constructed box with a Lincolnshire Hare design.

SusyChaplin_LincsHareBox_550During the exhibition Mary Newman will entertain us again by painting a large ‘backdrop’ in the gallery which will be used as part of the scenery in a forthcoming play at the Sleaford Playhouse.  You can drop in and see how the painting progresses, watch how a theatrical scene is painted and chat with Mary who will be happy to see you.  You can also see the finished painting in the production ‘Natural Causes’ at the Playhouse  from 24 May – 27 May (click here for more info and book tickets – opens new window/tab).  Pictures will be posted  here as Mary progresses (but you really need to visit the gallery to appreciate the real thing).

Belton House roof 550We also have some poems on display from the Sleaford Hub Writers who will also be performing at the Hub (The National Centre for Craft and Design) during the Sleaford Live Festival on Tuesday 02 May. (Click here for more info on Sleaford Live Festival.)

Exhibition opening: 10 am – 4 pm every day (excepts Sundays) until 06 May.

PLEASE NOTE: The gallery will be closed on Bank Holiday Monday 01 May.

Update:

Mary Newman’s painted backdrop for the Sleaford Playhouse production Natural Causes.  If you visit the Playhouse you will see more of Mary’s work adorning the walls of the auditorium.  Be sure to take time to enjoy before the lights go down.
