Extended to Jan 27th 2019 - Anthony Day & Brin Edwards

Anthony Day - With more in mind

Returning with his popular gouache paintings, Anthony has been our sole annual exhibiting artist since the restaurant and gallery opening in 1968. In this, his 51st show, he returns with a mix of retrospective pieces and new work as recent as May 2018. "Although last winter put a brake on production I still find the studio bracing, always promising better. But this and any future exhibition is likely to be retrospective, taken from bulging portfolios. The earliest shown are from 1979, the latest a single work from May this year, with more in mind."

Brin Edwards - Wildlife Artist & Illustrator

"My interest in birds dates from a childhood spent in Singapore where I was captivated by the colourful tropical species in our back garden. Back in the UK I also recall meeting Peter Scott at the Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust when I was ten years old and his ecouraging words for my likeness of a flamingo in crayons. I have developed a personal and expressive way of depicting the natural world in my oil paintings. This looser and atmospheric approach acts as a kind of antidote to the precision of my illustration work. I am very fortunate to live and work in the beautiful Suffolk countryside and much of the inspiration for my paintings comes from close to home."
