CHRIS WOOD

Saturday 6th March 8.00pm tickets £25

Monday 22nd March 7.30pm tickets £8.50

In 2009, Chris Wood was awarded Folk Singer of the Year at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. His album 'Trespasser' was also named Album of the Year.

Broadcaster, poet and performer, Bob Rollett returns for the fourth year running to entertain you with a selection of humorous and thought-provoking poetry to touch your emotions

Chris is an uncompromising writer whose music reveals his love for the un-official history of the English speaking people. With gentle intelligence he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables, his writing has been said to share the same timeless quality as Richard Thompson at his best.

Live music will again be provided by Freya Goldmark (violin) who has recently returned from giving two concerts at Russia’s prestigious Rachmaninov Institute.

Alfred Wallis

1. Derwent Drawings double sided pencil drawing

Front

from sketchbook, 25 x 39 cm,

ÂŁ9,500

The drawing is presented so that it can be hung with either face showing. On hearing that Alfred Wallis was living in the Penwith District Workhouse near Penzance, Ben Nicholson visited him several times during 194142. He gave Wallis the blank Derwent scrapbook so that he could continue working, when he felt able. We feel this represents great value for this rare piece from the Derwent Scrapbook.

Henry Moore

Henry Moore is generally acknowledged as one of the greatest sculptors of the 20th century and from the late 1940s until his death was recognised as the most celebrated British artist of his time. His drawings of nudes, pre 1930, are much sought-after. The fine example offered here is illustrated in volume 1 of the catalogue raisonnÊ, a copy of which will accompany the work. Moore’s sculpture and drawings are to be found in major museums and collections world wide.

Derrick Greaves (b1927), was one of the founder members of the Kitchen Sink School in the 1950s after winning a scholarship to the Royal College of Art. He represented Britain in the 1956 Venice Biennale, and in the same year was awarded a gold medal for painting at the Moscow Youth Festival. In the '60s Greaves' work lost its Kitchen Sink grittiness, becoming more poetic, linear and illusive. His work is held in many public galleries, including the Tate.

Printed by Chromoworks Ltd, London and published by Lyons & Co Ltd. From the late forties Lyons commissioned top British artists to make large lithographs which were used to paper the walls of their Lyons Cornerhouses. Although the editions ran to 1500 copies of each, very few have survived as, once stuck to a wall, they couldn’t be removed.

Stanley Spencer

16. Me Greeting Hilda ÂŁ1750

lithograph, ed 75, 39.5 x 27 cm,

Stanley Spencer (1891-1959). Painter of portraits, landscapes and imaginative, visionary, quirky works with a Biblical flavour set in his native Cookham, Berkshire. Studied at Slade School of Fine Art, 1908-12. Elected RA, 1950, and knighted, 1959. His work is held in many international collections, including Tate Gallery, and a Stanley Spencer Gallery was opened in Cookham in 1962.

Stanley Spencer

17. Spencer Family with Dog ÂŁ1750

lithograph, ed 100, 37.5 x 27.6 cm,

These lithographs were probably made by Spencer’s friend, the artist Henry Trivick, and are taken from a set of drawings made by Spencer in the 1930s. The titling under each print, which includes the name Stanley Spencer, is thought to be that of Trivick. Copies are held at the Stanley Spencer Museum in Cookham and are extremely scarce. Both prints bear a Friary Studio stamp.

John Piper

18. Long Sutton, Lincolnshire tapestry, 100% wool pile, made by R Dutt, Calcutta, 1984, 5’ 6” x 6’ 10” (168 x 208 cm). May be hung on wall or laid on floor.

£8750 We have never seen this tapestry before and wonder whether only a few were actually produced. The creative excitement which Piper found in design work, including tapestry, is well expressed in his own words, A designer may understand tapestry thoroughly, may be learned in its history and contemporary practise and possibilities, but design remains design until someone’s imagination brings it to life in the new medium. I have had the pleasure – thrill is really a more appropriate word – of seeing this happen with my own designs for the stage, for colour reproduction, for stained glass and for tapestry. It is always exciting for an artist to see his work successfully realised.

But his forty years as a graphic designer resulted in an extensive collection of printed ephemera, and it is no wonder that an evocative selection of original material found its way into Shunt With Care.
