The sun is out and our new summer exhibition “Flora, Fauna & Folk” is coming together nicely. The paintings are nearly hung and the new sculptures, glass and ceramics, freshly delivered from Africa this morning, are waiting in a tempting stack to be unwrapped.
Talking of stacks, our featured painting above is by Sarah Pratt, a Zimbabwean-born artist, who we are delighted to welcome to the gallery. Her detailed drawing and excellent composition, liberally laced with humour and the unexpected, combine to create different and unusual work which is sure to appeal. Overall, it is shaping up to be a bright and breezy summer show, peppered with pretty colours, and plenty of light and levity to lift our mood.
The gallery will be open daily, 10am to 4pm, from Saturday 9th to Friday 22nd July. Private viewing is available by appointment only on Friday 8th July, and we have a few slots still available so please email [email protected] if you wish to book a time.
Our website www.fillingdon.com is constantly being updated with details and the new work as it comes in, so please refer to it for information or to purchase directly. Thank you for your interest.
