This week we’ll be hanging our Autumn exhibition – Our Dreams and Fairytales. The exhibition features a group of artists working in a vast array of media, inspired by the title. We’ve been receiving the deliveries of work for the show this week, and are really excited and impressed by the different approaches to the theme. So before you start thinking that the exhibition will be all sweet and lovely, remember there is a dark side to fairytales too…..!
This year we’ve welcomed a lot of new work into The Gallery, and Our Dreams and Fairytales is no different. You may recognise Vic Sayers’ work (above) from our Tea and Sympathy show earlier this year, and Colin Smithson‘s paintings and prints (below) have been admired in the gallery for many years. Here are a few artists you will not have seen here before…
Carine Brosse – Ceramics and Sculpture.
Gillian Lee Smith – Textiles and Ceramics.
Fiona Wilson – Printmaking and Sculpture.
Anna Kopp – painting.
Clare Lindley – paper cutting.
Clare exhibited in The Gallery some years ago, so it is a pleasure to welcome her back.
Our Dreams and Fairytales opens on the 14th of October for one month. For more information and images, check out our Facebook page.
If you’re looking for more of a reason to visit Masham this month, here’s a big one. The Masham Arts Festival, a bi-annual week long event featuring creative workshops, music and art events all over town, is opening on friday the 21st for the half term week. There are different events taking place all day every day that week, so if you are planning a visit in the near future, take note!
