19 – 24 November // 10.00 – 17.00 // Free entry

Keeping it local, Michelle’s lively drawings are always popular, and if you have a view in mind she is happy to take commissions. As well as cards and prints for sale, she will have a live drawing project running all week in the gallery creating large scale drawings that will build an inky collage of Worthing on the walls. Michelle also runs classes throughout the year – hey that’s a nice idea for a present!

John Evans, Janet Branscombe and Brian Tew







John Evans & Janet Branscombe: Oil and Fire in Flux

Brian Tew

26 November – 8 December // 10.00 – 17.00 // Closed Mondays

Flowing shapes and textured surfaces are here to be explored through the work of these three artists and friends. John Evans, a ceramicist, uses naked clay – no glaze – techniques to mark his work. Janet Branscombe, a painter and sculptor, celebrates the body in oil paintings and drawings and Brian Tew creates ceramic forms and digital compositions that are unplanned, intuitive and eclectic, and sometimes resemble artefacts from ancient civilisations.
For everyone who enjoyed their previous show here two years ago, you will find that these artists have explored new avenues in their work. If you haven’t yet discovered them, this is your chance to enjoy.
