Current Exhibitions

3rd - 26th November 2017

Lilias August - Horizons (Paintings)

A member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colour (RI) and has lived in East Anglia for thirty years. She has always admired the wide-open landscape of the fens and its flat horizons.

"The flat horizon is constantly in front of you. Towards it and on it things stand out like props on a stage and catch the eye. After many years of still life painting, this exhibition has been an opportunity for me to revisit this landscape, perhaps with a different eye."

Heidi Lichterman - Wearable Art, Scarves and Shawls

A Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen, Heidi has been weaving in silk since 1977;

"I love the way it feels and the way it takes the dye, allowing me to create very subtle colour blending as well as sharp contrasts using the Ikat dyeing method. The colours are my reaction to the weather, seasons, moods of the landscape. I try to catch the hedgerows in the shawls; the East Anglian skies in the scarves. The short fibre silk noil from the innermost part of the silk cocoon weaves into a lovely, soft, warm shawl. The shinier, spun silk that I weave as a twill for the scarves, gives a luxurious feel, weight and drape."

Preview 2nd November 6-8pm, all welcome


Continuing in The Sitting Room, November 2017

Michael Randall (1947-2000) – In The Moment

A painter of light who could capture a fleeting moment of action on canvas, infusing it with emotion that never slid into sentimentality. He made Cambridgeshire his home although Southampton born and bred. He studied at Southampton Art College and the Royal Academy Schools where he developed impressive life drawing skills. He believed that the finest art was based on traditional skills of drawing, composition and understanding colour.
