Winter Show 2014 is a vibrant, bold and distinctive selection of artwork to warm even the coldest of winter days.
The exhibition at World Land Trust Art Gallery and has been organised in partnership with the Wildlife Art Gallery in Lavenham.
On display will be a wonderful selection of works by Suffolk artists depicting wildlife and the landscape. Among the exhibitors are Margaret Glass, Roger Hardy, Amie Haslen, Andrew Haslen and Carol Saunderson. The works will be in a variety of media: paintings, prints and sculptures. All artwork is for sale.
Margaret Glass is well known and highly regarded throughout East Anglia. She works in oil and pastel and has been exhibiting her work for more than three decades since her first exhibition in Ipswich in 1972. In 1992 she was awarded the title Maitre Pastellist by La Société des Pastellistes de Françe, only the eleventh artist to receive this honour. In recent years she has developed a growing reputation as a talented oil painter. She has had solo shows in England and abroad.
Roger Hardy lives in Framlingham and is a regular exhibitor at World Land Trust Art Gallery. Winter Show will display a selection of his tree paintings and Hook Bill Bird, one of his curious bird sculptures made from recycled objects.
Carol Saunderson lives in Alpheton, Suffolk and her abstract landscape paintings are inspired by the rural environment. She says about her work: “I create work about the sensations and emotions of being in the landscape at different times. What really excites me is colour and the way that different colours interact and create mood in a painting.”
Andrew Haslen is another regular exhibitor at World Land Trust Art Gallery. He was elected a member of the Society of Wildlife Artists in 1988 and is a twice winner of the RSPB Art Award. Together with his daughter Amie, also a talented artist, Andrew has been curating exhibitions at World Land Trust Art Gallery since mid 2014.
Other works on display in the gallery are by artists Matt Underwood and Chris Rose and by sculptors Stephen Henderson and David Cook. Also on sale in the gallery are two new books: Light through Glass, depicting Margaret Glass’ unique oils and pastels, and Halcyon, the long-awaited second book by Andrew Haslen.
