Hester Berry Horizons 10 May – 22 June Private view: 10 May, 6-8pm Hester Berry paints expressive and organic rural and urban landscapes that are made of recycled, eco-friendly materials. Hester paints from life, invariably when it is raining, observing the idiosyncrasies of natural life from a sheltered perch. ‘My painting is an attempt to connect the visual and culturally familiar experience of the landscape with its visceral. The viewer can identify with the pleasures of the existing but endangered great outdoors’. Hester is the winner of the 2011 Peoples Choice
award for Young Artists.

Maker in Focus
Shakspeare Glass 3 May – 22 June Will Shakspeare set up Shakspeare Glass in 1988 after studying in Farnham. He is inspired by nature and produces distinctive work that ranges from small vases to large cast wall pieces, enjoying the spontaneity of the glass blowing process. This exhibition showcases exciting new abstract wall-based work and a range of striking sculptural forms.
Katrin Moye 28 June – 10 August Katrin Moye’s functional ceramics are inspired by childhood memories and a desire to create pieces that might have an important place in a family home. Her work is identified by a cleverly chosen colour palette and playful patterns developed from 1950s motifs. Katrin’s handmade tableware compliments the delicate perfection of her still life watercolours, displayed together in the exhibition. Katrin Moye
