Rising Stars 2019

Rising Stars is a platform for some of the most exciting new crafts by emerging makers in crafts, design and applied arts – this year, the exhibition is bigger than ever, following a record number of applications.

This curated, selling exhibition will be showcased at the New Ashgate Gallery and also include a programme of makers’ professional development events and a £500 prize. The participants are graduating students, recent graduates or have a pivotal moment in their early career due to changed circumstances.

This year, the project received 109 applications. The makers have been selected for the exhibition by a panel of craft professionals, focusing on their potential and talent, and were Rebecca Skeels, Course Leader for Postgraduate Programmes, School of Craft and Design, University for the Creative Arts, Gemma Curtis, Crafts Programme Coordinator, the Farnham Maltings and Dr Outi Remes, Director, New Ashgate Gallery.

Many of the graduating makers are at cross roads: they have a full portfolio of fabulous ideas, but are yet to establish their business skills and a network of collectors. Rising Stars offers just the right platform, and for many, it is a starting point for an exceptional career. Rising Stars is an opportunity for the makers as well as art collectors who wish to support and collect work by future stars.

The selected makers of exceptional talent are: Angelina Jane, Arra Textiles, Louise Bell, Georgia Buck, Holly Burton, Eve Campbell, Jenny Chan, Sara Chyan, Kim Colebrook, Mihaela Coman, Rayvenn Shaleigha D’Clark, Natalie Eagle, Tamir Erlich, Alice Funge, Alysa Freeman, Susanna Gogarty, Iona Hall, Qiang Li, Marek Lí, Sam Lucas, Ruth Martindale, Bekky May, Annette Mills, Poppy Norton, Benjamin Pearey, Mitch Pilkington, Nastassia Ramazankhani, Kyle Ramsey, Catherine Rua, Jinya Zhao and Marissa Ziesing.

Rising Stars is organised by the New Ashgate Gallery and supported by the Billmeir Charitable Trust. We work in partnership with the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.

Private View: 1st March 2019 6pm-8pm
Winner of the Rising Stars Award will be announced at 7pm during the Private View.




Monoprints: Tessa Pearson and Louise Davies – passion for bold colour

Monoprinting is a form of printmaking that has lines or images that can only be made once. This is unlike most printmaking that allows editions. This exhibition brings together two artists, Louise Davies and Tessa Pearson, who use the technique in their printmaking.

Louise Davies uses intense layers of translucent colour and overlapping shifting shapes that are pulled together by calligraphic lines that define the subject matter. Much of this work stems from Louise’s formative years in the West of England and its countryside. Later moving to London Louise recalls the landscape by adding her romantic notion of colour to emphasise the beauty of nature, induced by nostalgia for the past: suns rising and setting, turbulent storms, calm and troubled waters. Louise also uses drama and vibrant colour in her London and cityscapes. Buildings are back lit by luminescent skies that add magic and excitement to the already vibrant city. The River Thames is set alight with neon colours that reflect the mood of the image.

Louise Davies R.E. is a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers. She has devoted the last thirty five years to her art work having trained as a painter and printmaker.

Tessa Pearson has always been in love with colour, and has spent her life seeing the world as a myriad of pattern and captivating images. Marvelling at patches of brilliant yellow in a dramatic patchwork green landscape, the glimpse of a violet pot against a cobalt blue wall will thrill her. Trained in textile design, her influences have been many, from Matisse to Hodgkin and the bold colourists of mid twenty first century painters Patrick Heron and Albert Irvin.

Tessa sees gardens as living paintings: she immerses herself in the planting, responding to their colour, rhythms and characteristics. These moments have built a rich recollection of imagery for her monoprints that use unpredictable water media, experimental printmaking processes and spontaneous mark making with digital imagery. They capture the liveliness and energy from Tessa’s observations.

Tessa studied Printed Textile design at UCA Farnham and the Royal College of Art, where she won the Courtauld’s Prize. She is also the winner of the Surrey Artist of the Year competition at the New Ashgate Gallery in 2012.




Emily Jane Bruce: Carnival – Rising Stars 2018: One Year On

Emily Jane Bruce is the winner of the prestigious Rising Stars 2018 prize and we are delighted to welcome her back for her One Year On exhibition. Rising Stars is a platform for the most exciting new crafts by emerging makers from crafts and applied arts programmes across the UK.

Emily Jane creates mixed media soft sculptures and traditional illustrations. Emily’s work stems from her love of antique toys, haberdashery and lettering; items with qualities of the uncanny and the priceless period of childhood nostalgia.

Carnival, Emily’s first solo show, is a weirdly wonderful celebration of all things fantastical, bringing to life characters and creatures from the secret world of the circus and bygone showman’s era. Emily’s whimsical creations invite you to relive the aged splendour of the big top tent through her unique style and lovingly made details.

Rising Stars is organised by the New Ashgate Gallery and supported by the Billmeir Charitable Trust. We work in partnership with the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.

Private View: 1st March 2019 6pm – 8pm

Ray Sheldon: Exercises in Spacial Arrangement

Ray Sheldon: Exercises in Spacial Arrangement

Ray is a modernist at heart. His work explores the dynamics of still life; somewhere between the figurative and abstraction and is striving for simplification, by reducing a composition to its essential characteristics.

Ray prepares his own gesso boards and canvases manipulating the surface. The planning of colour masses is vital: colour can arouse the deepest thoughts and emotion. As Ray says:

“For me a still life painting is a living thing. Each work is reworked many times, objects rearranged, the negative spaces are as significant as the objects. I love the play between the flat surface and the illusion of depth and solidity. I don’t feel restricted by my subject, Giorgio Morandi showed me how to paint and keep busy with just one theme.”

20 April to 8 June 2019. Tuesday to Saturday: 10am-5pm | Closed on Mondays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Free entry.

We sing songs of all styles in 3 or 4 part harmony with no auditions and you don’t have to read music, although it is given out for each song. Full Circle get involved in a number of community activities, such as concerts, collaborations with local choirs, open mic nights, charity singing, singing for care homes, recording sessions and we always have a guest musician in at least once a year – a masterclass in everything from Gospel to Rock. One year we had Clare Wheeler from the Swingle Singers, another time we had Anu Omideyi, distinguished gospel singer.

We have a laugh each session and sing for fun and as part of the Farnham community, enjoying social evenings out as well as our usual singing sessions.

If there is one thing you can guarantee from coming to a Full Circle session is that you will smile at least once during the session.

We’re a friendly, non-judgemental group who love to meet new members and sing fantastic harmonies.

Hope to see you soon!

Farnham Carnival

Farnham has held a Carnival for nearly 100 years and this year is no exception. The theme of the Carnival for 2019 is “Fly me to the Moon” to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of men landing on the Moon. Fun starts with the Fayre in Gostrey Meadow on Saturday 29th June 2019 at 2pm and continues until 9pm. While away the hours enjoying the fun fair, stalls, live bands, food and bar whilst waiting for the Parade to start at 6pm from Upper Hart Car Park and thread its way round Farnham’s town centre. Come line the pavements and cheer loudly as the floats go by. Over 50 entries representing local schools, charities, clubs and businesses took part in 2018. If you are a local organisation or business, you could boost your profile in the area by entering the Parade and you’ll be seen by the thousands of people that line the streets of Farnham on Carnival Day. Alternatively promote your business by reserving a pitch at the Fayre in Gostrey Meadow.

The Carnival is planned, organised and run entirely by volunteers from the local community, without whom the event could not take place.
Have you thought of assisting on the organising committee and contributing to the planning of the event which starts months in advance of the Carnival day? Or perhaps joining our friendly teams of like minded residents who work on the day to make Farnham Carnival the fantastic event it is for all the town’s inhabitants?

On the day our work is generally organised into two-hour shifts, however volunteers arrange to devote as much or as little time as they feel able. There are no particular requirements other than enthusiasm, but if you have some expertise or knowledge that you think would be helpful, please get in touch.
All offers of help are gratefully received and will be acknowledged. Please email us at contact@farnhamcarnival.org.uk or visit our website www.farnhamcarnival.org.uk

The Farnham Business Hub is an engaging and collaborative ‘real-world’ community and for business owners in the Farnham area. We meet every Friday in central Farnham to learn, share, network… and enjoy being amongst fellow entrepreneurs!




Full Circle Vocal Group

Come and join Full Circle Vocal Group. We have been singing in the Farnham Community for 10 years in 2019 and we’re getting better and better each year. With something different to look forward to each term, there are plenty of reasons to join us. We sing songs of all styles in 3 or 4 part harmony with no auditions and you don’t have to read music, although it is given out for each song. Full Circle get involved in a number of community activities, such as concerts, collaborations with local choirs, open mic nights, charity singing, singing for care homes, recording sessions and we always have a guest musician in at least once a year – a masterclass in everything from Gospel to Rock. One year we had Clare Wheeler from the Swingle Singers, another time we had Anu Omideyi, distinguished gospel singer.

We have a laugh each session and sing for fun and as part of the Farnham community, enjoying social evenings out as well as our usual singing sessions.

If there is one thing you can guarantee from coming to a Full Circle session is that you will smile at least once during the session.

We’re a friendly, non-judgemental group who love to meet new members and sing fantastic harmonies.

Hope to see you soon!
