biting success.

The ethereal abstracts of Karen Smith, a member for 15 years, mark a new departure for this artist, who draws inspiration from the river at St Clement, near Truro, close to her studio.
And Jo Beer’s Neolithic-influenced pots will, as always, attract much interest.
Founder member Mary Fletcher says: ‘Taking Space reaches a wide audience and has established a democratic way of operating which is rare in the art world.'

Where the Light Dances - (Published or amended 2019-04-18)Print details for Where the Light Dances CACD id E.10443

Saturday, 11th May 2019 until Sunday, 19th May 2019

Gallery artists Karen Birchwood and Kate Schuricht are delighted to be showing a collection of new work in their joint exhibition at Padstow Gallery this May. Painter, Karen and ceramicist, Kate first showed together in Open Studios in Kent in 2016 and they are now looking forward to exhibiting together in the beautiful Cornish coastal setting of Padstow.
The exhibition ‘Where The Light Dances’ reflects their shared love of seascapes and rural landscapes, in particular the subtle interplay of light as it moves over the land.
Karen Birchwood is well known for her expressive use of colour and mark making. Her abstract paintings capture the movement of the sea, grass and trees in gestural brush strokes that seem to dance across the canvases. The stillness and calm of Kate Schuricht’s raku and stoneware pots balance well with the inherent movement in Karen’s paintings. Elements of sweeping landscapes and atmospheric seascapes are in turn delineated over the surface of Kate’s pots in layers of glaze that evoke the horizon.

Flying Tales Drama workshops for youngsters.

The very stuff that dreams are made of, then proceed to throw in some bright heeled tinder to catch the imagination and startle the slumbering mind’s eye.

Tension and Contrast - (Published or amended 2019-03-31)Print details for Tension and Contrast CACD id E.10425

Friday, 26th April 2019 until Sunday, 28th April 2019

ceramicist, Bridget JohnsonCelebrate the official launch of new ceramicist, Bridget Johnson, whose hand-crafted vessels are available exclusively through Padstow Gallery, Cornwall.
‘I have always been interested in the tension and contrast between what is natural and what is man-made and seek to create organic forms that seem to have sprung up naturally and yet are made with great attention to detail.’ Bridget Johnson, 2019.
Bridget’s stunning vessels are formed using a traditional West African coiling technique, this is followed by hours, sometimes days, of burnishing using a polished stone, producing a tactile sheen that makes each piece feel warm and alive. The vessels are bisque fired, and then smoke fired with a carefully selected collection of organic materials to produce distinctive colours and markings. The intensity and precision involved in making and burnishing each form is then contrasted by the excitement and drama of smoke firing, where the vessels are sacrificed to the smoke and flames, and alchemy takes over… This finish makes each piece unpredictable and creates a sense of life and drama on the vessels’ surface.
