HOTHOUSE | SELECTED

EDGE OF THE OCEAN

PRIVATE VIEW: 27 JULY, 6-8PM

PRIVATE VIEW: 27 JULY, 6-8PM

This exhibition celebrates fresh, innovative and bespoke craft and is part of our programme to exhibit some of the most exciting makers to art lovers and collectors.

The New Ashgate Gallery celebrates holidays by the coast and memories of carefree days away from our ever-connected world.

The makers in this exhibition have previously been selected for the Crafts Council’s prestigious Hothouse programme that offers support and mentoring for new makers wishing to break into the sector. This is an opportunity to invest in the future of British crafts and to celebrate past Hothouse participants who have turned their passion for making into successful businesses.

Artists have been painting seascapes for hundreds of years in order to capture the beauty of the natural world. Seascapes speak a common language that we can all relate to; the endless horizon of the sea, sunset walks and the rhythmic sound of the waves.

The makers include: Aimee Bollu (bottom right), Elaine Bolt (top right), Charles Dedman, Tim Evershed, Stella Harding, Christina Hesford, Verity Howard, Emma Johnson, Catriona Mackenzie, Tina McLeod, Heather McDermott, Jode Pankhurst, Angie Parker, Lauren Taylor, Jessica Thorn, Theo Wright and Cristina Zani. The New Ashgate Gallery is a Hothouse partner. Hothouse is a Crafts Council initiative where selected makers take part in a six-month programme which is delivered in partnership across four regions in the UK. The programme includes workshops, 1:1 mentoring and connects the maker to a national network of makers and organisations. It provides the maker with the tools to grow a sustainable and successful business when they need these skills most - at the start of their career. Hothouse is helping to secure the future of British craft, and you as collectors are making it happen.

We are delighted to bring together nine artists and makers whose work encapsulates the positive feelings of enjoyment, calmness and refreshment. This carefully selected exhibition of work aims to evoke feelings of nostalgia and relaxation. These artists create work in a variety of disciplines, from ceramics to oil on canvas - all influenced by colour and the need to capture and interpret that holiday atmosphere. An exhibition of work by Theo Brooks, Sigrun Hill, Jan Lewin-Cadogan, Alison Orchard, Alison Proctor, Isla Rose, Annabelle Shelton, Sonya Vine (above) and Ann Marie Whaley.

2017 SURREY ARTIST OF THE YEAR: SU JAMESON

ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE

One Year On

PRIVATE VIEW: 14 SEPTEMBER, 6-8PM A solo exhibition of work by 2017 Surrey Artist of the Year Su Jameson.

PRIVATE VIEW: 14 SEPTEMBER, 6-8PM Chemistry, light, skill and chance are the key ingredients for the recipe of ‘Accidentally on Purpose’. The New Ashgate Team have carefully selected a trio of artists who have all mastered working with their materials and the element of the unexpected within their finished works.

Liphook based artist Su Jameson makes one-off hand built ceramic figurative sculptures. Each piece comes from personal experience, but she tries to explore ideas that are both particular and universal. Her work aims to be thought provoking and invite re-interpretation.

Local photographer Simon Painter will be exhibiting his high energy photographs. Simon uses light and movement whilst shooting to change the focus of an image from the objects in the scene, to the light between those objects.

Lynn Pascoe creates beautiful Cyanotypes informed by the Cornish landscape in which she lives.

Bryony Rich is showing a selection of her wonderfully volcaniclooking Raku fired ceramics.
