Bench makes it’s mark at Simon Chorley Art & Antiques

Features by Tony No Comments »

The highlight of Simon Chorley’s fine art sale on Thursday 26th June was undoubtedly Lot 665, an Irish early 19th century. While the seat had suffered some damage and a poor varnish, it ticked enough of the right boxes to realize a sale topping £26,000 against an estimate of £1500-£2000.

A new Exhibition – Family Matter – Paintings by Mick Rooney, RA. Mick is not a typically English painter. Although his artistic antecedents embrace the narrative, not to say literary traditions of our national art, they also look to the broader horizons. He is an eclectic whose subject is the human condition:to this endlessly renewing disaster area he brings a sharp eye and a pawky humour.

Fosse Gallery – June Redfern, A Major Exhibition of Recent Work

Events, Features, Places by Tony No Comments »

June Redfern, On the West Coast, Watercolour, (c) June RedfernSaturday 10th November to Friday 30th November – Fosse Gallery Fine Art Stow-on-the-Wold

This is June Redfern’s second solo exhibition at the Fosse Gallery Stow-on-the-Wold.

Born in St Andrews, Fife, she studued drawing and painting at Edinburgh College of Art from 1968 to 1972. Her solo exhibition “Real Lives” in 1981 at the Third Eye Centre Glasgow exhibited realist paintings influenced by her teaching experience in the 1970′s in a school in Leith. She taught at Cardiff College of Art from 1983 to 1985 and later in 1985 she became Artist-in Residence at the National Gallery London where her paintings from this period were exhibited in 1986.
June has work in a number of private collections in Europe, Canada, USA and Ireland. She has also appeared on BBC2′s “Oil on Canvas” series and has exhibited in many major commercial galleries.

The work of this dedicated artist has succeeded in adding another dimension to the phrase “Expressionist Art.” The canvases may be small or large but her ability to install maximum impact remains profound.

Make Bronze Age jewellery at Museum session

Events, Features by Adam 2 Comments »

Silver Wrist Workshop (c) Corinium Museum 2007Master the art of Bronze Age metal working at an adult day session being held in Cirencester later this month.

Keen metal workers are invited to the Corinium Museum in Park Street on Saturday November 17th, where they can make a beautiful wrist torque from pure silver, using the same technology used in Bronze Age England.

Metal smiths in the Bronze Age (1000BC) developed a surprisingly high level of skill in bronze and gold working, using twisting and forging methods to make wrist and neck torques. At this workshop, participants will use these same methods to make their own wrought silver wrist torque, complete with twisted body and tapered ends.

Working with pure silver rod and artist Neil Burridge, they will explore forging with stone tools, experiment with different twisting techniques and experience common problems found with work-hardening or heat-treating certain metals.

Pure silver is rarely seen today, being much softer to work. As it does not tarnish and always returns to the soft, white colour of the moon, one can understand why some ancient peoples valued it as highly as gold.

The day school will run from 10am-4pm and tickets cost £45 per person, including materials and tea or coffee. Lunch is not included, and booking is essential.

For more details, to book a place, or to find out about other events, please call Helen Arbon on 01285 655611 or email museums@cotswold.gov.uk
