With much of the new work a result of my recent foray to Africa, the obvious title for our forthcoming exhibition seemed to be “Freshly Foraged”. Now stacked in the gallery, I am unpacking a mountain of boxes and photographing, sorting and labelling a diverse wealth of paintings, ceramics, jewellery, sculptures and crafts. I feel blessed to work with such beauty.
The featured painting in this newsletter is by a new multi-media and multi-talented artist to the gallery, Monique Day-Wilde from South Africa. Her quiet and thoughtful work draws on her love and appreciation of her natural surrounds, and is meticulously executed with detail and precision. The three small works in this Meanderings series are available now to view by clicking on her name.
By chance, our summer exhibition this year coincides with Bucks Art Weeks. Whilst we are not officially part of the programme, we know many will be out viewing the array of art available in the county, so urge you to drop in on us too. Likewise, we will encourage our visitors to see more of what’s on locally and for ease of reference have included a link here to Bucks Art Weeks.
As we unpack, our website www.fillingdon.com is constantly changing, and one can purchase directly online at any stage – we are great for gifts and very happy to pack and post.
Make a note of the dates in your diaries and please email [email protected] if you have any enquiries.
