Please Touch Me Trisha Crocker 25 September – 13 October Balcony Gallery Trisha Crocker has been working in clay and bronze for two decades and her work is informed by play. Therefore, nothing is replicated and all is built from imagination and experimentation. Trisha’s women are about the uniqueness of the female form: their phallic appearance developing through the natural progression of play along with the tactile quality of clay. The title of the exhibition, Please Touch Me, encourages the viewer to handle the pieces and feel their form, appreciating the many sides of women. It is a reminder that women need to be touched and appreciated for their innate individuality and beauty. Trisha Crocker was born in Hollywood and has lived in England all of her adult life.

Visual Diaries: Holly Drewett, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Craig Shuttlewood 24 October – 14 November Private view: Friday 26 October, 6–8pm Pavilion Gallery & Foyer

Visual Diaries brings together three artists. Holly Drewett’s prints explore themes of journey, landscape, architecture and sense of place. work celebrates the rich culture and colour that is so prominent in these countries. At the heart of this work is printmaking; intrigued by both traditional and digital techniques the processes are allowed to overlap and the results are used to develop the work.

Holly Drewett


Joanne Hummel-Newell collects printed and handwritten ephemera and this is an important part of her creative process. She gathers things, scraps, shopping lists, tickets found on the street, at a train station,

pockets, all of a particular appearance—discoloured, loved, lost, stained, beautiful and damaged. All of which become part of Joanne’s drawing cuttings and collage materials. Craig Shuttlewood is interested in experimenting with surface and layers, and his work has gradually transformed into a visual diary. Colourful paintings on canvas, found wood and panel express quirky illustrative elements and words based on the beauty of everyday observations and stories. Tall buildings, trees, cup cakes, angels and birds all appear along with snippets of found printed materials to make these unique pieces.
