Hanging by a Thread At the Heritage Courtyard Studios & Art Gallery in Wells until 25th March

Five fine artists respond to the title in this thought provoking exhibition.  It starts from a point of suspended animation – a delicate position where loss and gain hold equal sway.

‘Stone and Thread’

March 10th onwards
11 - 5 Wednesday to Sunday

Discover a new Spring Collection of Carole Waller’s wearable art – clothes and scarves – at the gallery from March 10th 2017.

Inspired by the 250th Anniversary of the building of the Royal Crescent in Bath. ,  the Palladian influenced architecture is all about order and symmetry and is contrasted to the exuberant brushmarks of disorder in Carole’s painting.
Lace is also an inspiration – with its references of complexity, craft, and femininity.
There are silk scarves and shawls in fine wool gauze – shirts and jackets , signature coats and dresses for all occasions. A growing collection of contemporary jewellery, including new etched silver brooches by Annie Beardsley, picks up the themes and colours.

Elizabeth Turrell

Makes markers and memorials in enamel jewellery and wall pieces, to remember individuals, conflicts and wars.  Elizabeth is showing three vitreous enamel panels and a series of ‘badges’.

 

About her Universal Declaration of Human Rights Series she states :

‘As a child of the Second World War generation I am haunted by inherited memories from the First and Second World Wars. What do I do with the shadows of these memories? Because I was not damaged does not mean I am untouched. Conflicts and wars continue today with unrelenting repetition, compelling me to make markers and memorials, both to remember individuals and to mark these conflicts. This work marks the lives of ordinary citizens caught up in the extraordinary circumstances of conflicts and war. I often use fragment of text from the 1949 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. I find the form of the cross very potent. For me it is a universal symbol from ancient times; still powerful today, both as symbol and sign.’
