Forthcoming Exhibitions - Weston Park
September 2013 - Lance Fennell
Milton Keynes based artist Lance Fennel will be exhibiting in the Granary Art Gallery throughout September. Primary looking at familiar areas, Lance paints scenes such as highways, landscapes, office interiors and petrol stations. Like many people who view the landscape through a windscreen while travelling, Lance has taken the opportunity to capture the richness and beauty of roadways juxtaposed with the landscape.
October 2013 - Lisa Henderson & Philip Huckin
We are welcoming two landscape artists in the Granary Art Gallery during October.
Lisa Hendersonâ€™s uses a variety of materials to focus on texture and surfaces to echo the landscape. In addition to using collaged recycled papers to build up layers, she adds chalk, paint and graphite to add a sense of depth. Also to help achieve patternation, she applies techniques often associated with printmaking such as wiping and scratching to achieve the crisp qualities which her work possesses.
Philip Huckin will be exhibiting a selection of his highly detailed landscape drawings and paintings, many of which are based on the Welsh countryside. His attention to colour and clarity are clearly shown in his paintings. The use of light and shadow, along with his ability to illustrate depth with varying tones and foreground and background create uplifting images for any home.
November 2013 - Jason Hicklin
Contemporary British artist Jason Hicklin will make a welcome return to the Granary Art Gallery for a selling exhibition of his latest works throughout November.
Jasonâ€™s work consists of primarily of etchings and drawings of landscapes, with his usual style being a response to the extremes of nature and its effects on the landscape around him â€“ often in the coastal extremities of the British Isles.
His most recent works, though, have been more gentle landscapes and manâ€™s intervention within them.
December 2013 - Rob Pointon
Burlsem based Rob Pointon, returns to the Granary Art Gallery to exhibit his creative scenes from working outdoors around the UK, for a selling exhibition throughout December.
He paints scenes of landscapes, cityscapes, and life class studio portraits. His finished works have freshness, vitality, dynamism and are full of movement - a result of painting 'en plein air' (outdoors) and applying rapid brush strokes.
Since January 2012 Rob has been producing work for his "Year of the Boat" project. Whilst living on a narrow boat and travelling around the UK on the canal network, Rob visited towns, landscapes and historic sites to document his visits. The resulting works show Rob's incredible ability to capture architecture, people and places. This is a touring exhibition and a selection of works will be on display.
January 2014 - The Graduate Show.
The Granary Art Gallery will be exhibiting recent works from those currently studying a fine art discipline and from those who have recently graduated. Please have a look at the website for further details on how to apply. The deadline is Friday 29th November 2013!
February 2014 - Recent Figurative and Landscape paintings by Roger Keeling
Weston Park is proud to welcome the Shropshire based artist Roger Keeling RBSA to the Granary Art Gallery during February 2014. The exhibition will take place between Saturday 1st February and Wednesday 28th.
Inspired mainly by the observation of the figure, his work is mostly based around the human form, sometimes focusing on particular aspects of the model such as portraiture. The work on display will show his use of a variety of materials and, in some cases, a tendency to work in the style of a realist. Rogerâ€™s talent in capturing different subject matters, such as landscapes, figures and still life is clear, and will be demonstrated in this exhibition.
Having graduated from Leicester College of Art in 1971 with a Fine Art & Printmaking degree, he continued to study at Liverpool University for a post-graduate teaching diploma. After teaching art in Manchester, he moved to Shropshire where he now teaches and continues to produce his own original pieces.
