So if you are in need of bold and playful dog-themed art, step into John’s world of Dawgmented Reality and get some light relief to brighten your day.
As well as prints, we have an incredibly long sausage dog on display – can you guess how long it is? The winner will get a free print.
You can also get a glimpse of John’s new Mini Rabbit adventure Mini Rabbit Must Help in the decorated windows of our studio gallery. This is John’s second children’s book and will be published soon.
Tom Gillham: Breaking Boxes
Tuesday 23 June – Saturday 4 July
Next up, Tom Gillham brings us a collection of expressive paintings created as part of his MA Fine Art at University of Brighton. His work moves easily between figurative and abstract styles and are created through spontaneous mark-making in a range of mediums.
Tom is influenced by painter Frank Bowling, the first black British artist elected as a Royal Academician, and he emulates the ‘poet of paint’ with layers and washes of paint which fragment his figures and transform his landscapes into colourful ‘mindscapes’.
We will be limiting visitors and staying Covid-19 secure, so you can be confident about coming to see us. We will be opening along with many other town centre businesses.
