Upcoming Exhibitions

Eclectic

Start:

March 21, 2024

Finish:

March 24, 2024

Eclectic is a group exhibition featuring:

Jules Bishop practises contemporary drawing and, by foraging from hedgerows, makes all her own materials from scratch. Her signature style is ice-process drawings.

Andrea Brewer, ceramicist, hand-builds abstract, stoneware clay sculptures with a signature copper oxide glaze.  These are inspired by natural forms, predominantly the ancient spiral motif.  

William Harrop, painter and collage artist, decontextualises everyday images and ‘leeches the story out of them’.  His work, architectural in finished form, lends an eye to the strange.  

Maria Loring, botanical printer and natural dyer, creates unique textile pieces using foraged leaves and colour from plants grown on her allotment dye garden in Henley-on-Thames.  

Edwina Sercombe, painter, uses a variety of mediums: oil and chalk pastels, acrylic inks, and oil paint.  She draws on a sensory connection to nature through the use of materials and her work reflects the richness of colours and textures of the natural landscape.

Connected III is the third exhibition curated by Cat Croxford and Liz Harvey at the OFS. Connected exhibitions bring together specially invited artists who we have connected with through common creative practices, through our teaching, or via the local art community.

We believe in bringing a variety of new and different artists to the gallery to inspire and excite; exhibiting artwork that you may not have seen before, which will enrich your homes and stimulate the senses.

For Connected III we will be showcasing the work of 7 artists.
