The Windham Hime Memorial Exhibition 2019

Sponsored by Rupert King and Company, Chartered Accountants

CloudTheme_P1010807_550“Allsorts ” is not the liquorice sort, but a description of the variety of media and themes. Mary treats us to another quirky exhibition with ‘traditional’ art, theatre pieces, post-it-note doodles and a few interesting stories and anecdotes with associated artworks.  Look out for the suspicious package – a true story (and the snails!)

Venice_P1010803_550

“I was born and raised in Bristol but have lived in Ruskington, then Sleaford for over 40 years. Aged forty-two I graduated from Hull Art College with a BA (hons) Fine Art.
Back in Sleaford I took on Adult Education Art classes and gained a City and Guilds 730 Certificate in adult teaching.  I retired having taught for 17 years.”

Package_P1010805_550“These days I am involved in running the Carre Gallery, belong to the Sleaford Hub Writers, Sleaford Art Group and Sleaford Little Theatre group. I have been painting theatre scenery for for about 20 years off and on, mostly for the pantomimes at Heckington and Sleaford. My friends who give me lots of support were all born in the same year as me! We call ourselves the 45ers.”

“I hope my exhibition will amuse and entertain you.”

LornaAndJustin_600

Hedley Cross has previously exhibited at the Carre Gallery in open exhibitions.  We are proud to welcome his first solo exhibition at the gallery.  Hedley explains:

This is an installation of family portrait and landscape paintings and other odd artefacts representing my family, friends and artistic life over 48 years from 1970 to 2018.  Many Sleafordians will know Lorna (in the picture ‘Lorna and Justin’ above) as Holly.

My last one-man exhibition was when aged 22 displaying surrealist paintings.  I have painted on-and-off, selling commissions and (as often) giving pictures as gifts all my life.  I am now 65.

I trained at, what was at the time, the Norwich School of Art.  I am not well known as a painter as most of my subsequent working life has been spent in various businesses.  All pictures in this exhibition are personal to my own family.

Over these intervening years a part of my artistic output has been representational paintings and drawings of myself and family, where we lived or have taken holidays and social events.

Most of us now share our lives, family, friends, children, even our latest meal, on Facebook and other social media.  This is my own personal way of sharing with you my family life. But you will need to visit the gallery to see it.  Admittedly it is a more proactive activity than swiping a touch screen but I hope you find the time and you will be most welcome.

By the way, there is nothing for sale here!  If, however, you would like to discuss a portrait or painting please leave your name, phone number and/or email with at the gallery and I will get in touch.

The exhibition is open from Monday 04 February to Thursday 14 February 2019 (including Sat 09 Feb)  from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm.
