Maker in Focus: Janine Partington and exploring colour and line through mark-making into leather

This exhibition presents new leather wall panels, vessels and brooches by Janine Partington, one of our most popular makers, recently selected for the prestigious Collect Open.

Janine is best known for her craft of enamelling with fresh, clean, contemporary design, also included in the show.

In June 2018 Janine completed a part-time MA in Design with distinction at the University of the West of England and she made the creative leap into working with a very traditional material, leather, in a fresh, contemporary and unique way. Drawing on past experiences with printmaking, bookbinding and embroidery Janine has explored mark making through the carving and painting of leathers to create distinctive and appealing surfaces. Her pieces often become abstracted landscapes. However, her inner need for harmony means there is a deeply ingrained subconscious check that ensures a balanced final composition.

Admission will be free.




Repurposed

Repurposed brings together artists who work with either recycled, reused or found materials, making beautiful and compelling works. Breathing new life into discarded objects and offering a platform for discussion on the subject of sustainability and recycling.

Workshops and talks will accompany the exhibition and admission will be free.

Ann Marie Whaley: A Different Space

Ann Marie draws and paints in the landscape, especially in London, Hampshire and Dorset, and responds to all the sensations of a certain place.

Painting outdoors is unlike any other creative experience, nourishing her imagination and the artist’s stockpile of colour, shape and line. Ann Marie’s outdoor sketches depict a different space on the paper and canvas; a space that conveys some of what it feels like to be in that landscape, not simply an image of what it looks like.

Ann Marie is inspired by great painters as Corot, Rubens, Diebenkorn, Derain, Morandi and Macke. Now living in London, she grew up in Arkansas, USA, and working in the English landscape is Ann Marie’s way to celebrate England, her new home country.




Vacation: Vocation – Trevor Price with sculpture by Richard Jack

Trevor Price is one of our long-term favourite artists – Trevor specialises in drypoints and etchings that are handmade and hand printed in his studios in London and St. Ives. For this exhibition, he has also created a new body of paintings.

Trevor studied at Falmouth and Winchester Schools of Art. He is a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. Trevor exhibits widely throughout Europe and has won several national printmaking awards. In 2011 at Printfest, the art fair dedicated to printmaking, he became the ‘Printmaker of the Year’. His work is held in various collections including those by his Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent, Victoria and Albert Museum (London), Ashmolean Museum (Oxford), Fitzwilliam Museum (Cambridge), Yinchuan Contemporary Art Museum (China), Guangdong Museum of Art (China), Yale University (USA), Office of Public Works (Dublin), University of Wales and Bank of England.

Trevor was commissioned in 2019 to produce his largest print to date (105x170cm) on the theme of The Silk Road, with the resulting work destined for Beijing and to hang in an exhibition in the National Art Museum of China later in the year.

Trevor’s work will be shown with sculptures by Richard Jack. Richard was born in Zimbabwe and began his career as an artist in South Africa in the 70s. In 2002, he moved to the UK where he continues to exhibit both locally and internationally. He has been commissioned for both private and public sculptures in Zimbabwe, UK, Denmark and Germany.

Richard’s figurative sculptures incorporate the mediums of wood, stone and steel. They are influenced by Africa and the times we live in. Contrasts of form, material and surface reflect the ambiguities of existence: the combination of strength and fragility, timelessness and the passage of time, the individual and the group. A recurring theme is the importance of the family, comforting and supporting one another in this rapidly changing world. In art, Richard has found the means to express his continually changing thoughts, imaginings and memories. It is about life, light and form – balanced, tense, suspended and under pressure.




Sculptor in Focus: David Mayne

Over the past 30 years David has developed his work from raw assemblage with found objects to the much more refined pieces he now creates. One thing has remained constant – the use of metal. David started using this material after visiting one of Sheffield’s scrap yards while studying his fine art degree. He was instantly drawn to the colour and texture of discarded steel and its inherent qualities.

David has a lifelong passion for nature and landscape – from early days of climbing and hill walking to mountain biking and fell running. He now lives in Holmfirth near areas of stunning woodland and wild and beautiful hills and moorland. The work he now creates is a response to this landscape and other wilderness environments he has encountered.

David Mayne is a sculptor of national repute who produces work for galleries, public spaces and the domestic environment. When he is not working on exhibitions and private commissions, Mayne continues his practice as a sculptor working in the public realm, creating landmark features for local authorities, visitor centres, large scale PLCs and health trusts. Clients include, Marks and Spencer, Leeds University, Carilion Civil Engineering, Taylor Wimpey, British Waterways and the sustainable transport charity Sustrans.




Crafts in Bloom

The exhibition joins the celebrations of Farnham in Bloom. Artists throughout the centuries from all cultures have been drawn to the beauty and elegance of flowers. Virginia Wolff remarks that we need to understand the beguiling beauty of a single flower, in order to grasp the meaning and potential of life itself.

Vanessa Hogge’s decorative ceramic wallflowers and vessels bring a unique textural and visual dimension to any wall or table. Inspired by her passion for all things botanical, and influences as diverse as Frida Kahlo, Indian miniature paintings and Marianne North, Vanessa breathes life into her clay in the form of dahlias, chrysanthemums, daisies, hydrangeas and Daphne.

The inspiration for Janet Twinn’s textiles comes from observation of the natural world, she uses drawing and photography to capture the moment from the changing colours of the season to the detailed structures found in garden flowers.

Lucy Burley’s ceramic vessels are not only inspired by the colours of flowers, but the bottle vases are also intended as a vehicle for displaying a single bloom, as described by Virginia Wolff; also, for many years she has taken inspiration from my daily walks around West Street Cemetery, close to her house, where Farnham Town Council have created a beautiful wildflower area, which when in bloom has inspired many of her glaze colours

The jeweller Rosie Wesley is fascinated by the concept of taking something from our natural environment and transforming it or assembling it into something else; giving it a new life away from its original environment. Her work allows you to appreciate natural spaces everyday, and preserve a part of them forever.

Crafts in Bloom includes a free family activity bag and a drop-in craft workshop at Picnic in the Park, 30 June, 12noon-6pm. The exhibition is curated by Loucia Manopoulou.

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!

Catherine Warren: One Year On – Surrey Artist of the Year 2018

Madeleine Jude is a textile designer and handweaver known for her beautifully soft lambswool throws, cushions and home textiles, woven using complex block weave techniques.

Her designs are influenced by Scandinavian weaving traditions and her colour aesthetic has much in common with the beautiful and naturalistic colour palette of early 20th century Swedish women rug weavers such as Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom and Ingegerd Silow. Each of her designs is a celebration of her great love of colour and pattern and an exploration of new weave structures and design elements. Every piece is meticulously handwoven, hand fringed or blanket stitched and hand finished by Madeleine in her Surrey studio, and as a result every piece is unique.

The exhibition also includes best-selling, bespoke trugs by Jane Crisp’s and fabulous baskets for cats by Judith Needham.

Farnham Design Day

The RIBA South/South East region have invited 15 (or more) small to mid size/commercial local practices as well as other design specialists to take part in Farnham Design Day, taking place on Saturday 21st September 2019 – 10.30am – 3.30pm.

The objective is to give members of the public a complete overview of exactly what and how an architect can help with building work, such as extensions and renovations. There is a great deal that is not known to the public and this drop in day would provide anybody who is considering building work with the knowledge and possible contacts of a local practice who could help.

Just pop along to the Maltings on Saturday 21st September, any time from 10.30am to 3.30pm – the Design Day is completely free and very informal. Architects and other design specialists will be there to talk through your ideas for your home and show you examples of their completed building projects. Bring along plans, photographs, mood boards, or just ideas. You should come away from the Design Day with a good idea of what you could do for the budget that you have in mind, plus contact details of architects and information about how they could work for you.

If you are thinking about a building project, be it small or large, this event is for you. If you’ve ever looked at your home and thought ‘I wonder how difficult/expensive/possible it would be to …’, the Design Day is an ideal opportunity to chat through your ideas with architects.

You’ll get the most out of the Design Day if you’re eager to explore options  – through talking to the architects and designers about your home and through looking at their completed work with an eye for ideas for your own project.
