LT Gallery, Exhibition of work by Roger Ellicott and Stephen Chapman

Exhibition Dates: Thursday 28th September - Tuesday 3rd October 2017 (the gallery will open on the Sunday and Monday 10-4 during the exhibition in addition to normal opening hours)

Drinks Event Thursday 28th September 6-8pm

Watercolour paintings by Stephen Chapman and acrylic paintings by Roger Ellicott; selected to be shown together by LT Gallery for this exhibition.

Roger creates wonderful spaces in his paintings which often have a poetic presence, or set the scene of a narrative; lying somewhere between the real and imaginary. For this show we have included a selection of his paintings which derive from landscapes or trees to correlate with Stephen's current work, but the subject matter of his paintings varies. Stephen's paintings have their own feel or mood which is more ethereal; sometimes moving into abstraction.

There are more details and images on our website.

Aleksander Nocny Exhibition at the LT Gallery

Imaginarium of the Open Mind" by Aleksander Nocny

Thursday 7th - Tuesday 26th September 2017
Drinks Event Friday 8th September 4 - 8 pm
Aleks with be painting live in the gallery on Saturday 16th September 10am - 4pm

You may have seen Aleks' paintings, murals, signs, photographs and sculptures in various venues, publications and events in Weston including the Sand Sculpture festival, a local school, the Hazy Days Music and Arts Festival and most recently the Birnbeck Spray Jam. He works as a tattoo artist but has also been painting on canvas for an exhibition of acrylic works at LT Gallery.

He says, 
"This exhibition brings together a collection of my dreams transferred onto canvas by brush and paint. I write in my diary what I remember of my dreams every morning and sketch them so that I will remember them.
Visitors to the gallery will be able to see how colourful, fascinating and different dreams are. You can be in world full of fantasy, magic creatures and incredible places; and you probably are during every night’s sleeps, but the magic trick is to remember those dreams in the morning and share what you saw with the others. Some of the paintings are from my trips into deep meditation and Out Of Body Experience.
I didn't finish art school. I've never been to art classes. Everything I do and know is just my experience and long hours of pain and creation." 

There will also be some of his fantastical mixed media sculptures in his show.

A Fabulous Trip to India with Maxine Relton


A Sketchbook Journey with Maxine Relton

17 days: 6 - 22 February 2018

In contrast to North India’s Golden Triangle, the Silver Ring of South India will take you through the authentic heartland of Undiscovered India, to the warm-hearted welcome of rural villages away from the beaten tourist trail.

This unusual journey offers a unique combination of encounters and experiences:

  • ·     the chance to make a significant difference to the villagers you visit (through the donation incorporated in the tour cost)
  • ·    a real insight into the timeless culture of South India by engaging with local people
  • ·    the chance to create a gorgeous personal journal of your travels as you learn or develop the art of simple sketching, even as a complete beginner.

If this inspiring prospect appeals to you, then this adventure is for you! I’ve been leading this small-group trip annually for nearly 10 years and am happy to welcome non-sketchers too, as I know how captivating and memorable our trip will be for everyone.

Please do read for a flavour of the trip and feel free to contact me directly if you'd like to hear more. My tour managers will be glad to send you a detailed itinerary:

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes Maxine

Nicki Heenan Exhibition at the LT Gallery, Weston Super Mare

'Sounds of the Ocean' art exhibition by Nicki Heenan

Thurs 3 Aug - Tues 15 Aug

Drawing/painting workshop on the Grand Pier Fri 4 Aug

Drinks Event Sat 5 Aug from 11am with talk by Nicki, 'Chasing the Light' at 2pm

Free for all to attend

Gallery opening times Tues, Fri, Sat 10-4 and Thurs 12-7

Nicki has kindly said she will donate one of her painting of Birnbeck Pier to the Birnbeck Pier Regeneration Trust as chosen by public vote. They will be part of her exhibition and visitors to her show can vote for their favourite.

Nicki Heenan is an artist who has the ability to capture the fleeting moments of the Sea. She paints regularly on various windswept coastlines working with mineral pigments and watermedia or oil paint mixed with wax. The way paint is used intimates the rugged rocks and tempestuous Seas. For many years Nicki also worked as a musician and so brings a lyrical tone to her work with a strong rhythmical quality.

Last year Nicki was selected for Sky Landscape Artist of the Year 2016 and was awarded a scholarship to study at Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ireland. Her work has regularly been on show as part of the Federation of Artists Mall Galleries Open exhibitions with the Royal Institute of Watercolours, Royal Society of Oil painters, New English Art Club, Royal Society of British Artists and shortlisted for Lynn Painter Stainers and Royal Portrait Society.

Open Exhibition and Sale of Paintings - Raising funds for Clevedon Community Hospital

St Andrew's Art Group's open exhibition is on Thursday July 27 - Saturday July 29 at Backwell Parish Hall and I hope to see you there at some time during our "opening hours".  We have the same number of paintings for you to see as last year, including some from artists new to us and, as in the past, two of the professional artists have generously donated their valuable works of art for our raffle.   For over 25 years now, all our profits from the exhibition will go to a local charity, which is Clevedon Community Hospital this year- see below.

We will be serving tea, coffee and home-made cakes throughout the exhibition and, on Thursday evening, we will have a wine bar.  As the Parish Hall has increased their hire fees this year we need to raise even more money than last, just to cover the increased costs, so every entrance fee paid and every cup of tea bought represents another valuable donation to a good cause!

Backwell Parish Hall

Opening Evening - Thursday 27th July 20177.30 p.m. – 9.30 p.m.

Friday 28th July 2017 10.00 a.m. – 8.00 p.m.

Saturday 29th July 2017 10.00 a.m. – 4.30 p.m.

The Walton Art Group proudly presents its first pop-up Art Show @Theatre Shop1,  Queen's Square, Clevedon.

Private View Friday 28th July 6pm-9pm. Open Saturday 29th July 10am-3pm.

This is the art group that Trudie Hawkins teaches at Walton-in-Gordano Village Hall on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and is a celebration of everyone's achievements whilst attending her art classes. There will be some lovely work from a group of people who really enjoy their art!

All are welcome to come along and see what they've been up to.

Ian price invites you to participate in The Portishead Marina Arts Trail Saturday August 5

What: ‘Everyone’s an Artist!’ – Portishead Marina Arts Trail 2017

When: Saturday 5th August 9am-6pm

Where: Hall & Woodhouse, Portishead Marina

Why: Celebrate creativity and community cohesion in Portishead. Raise funds for local causes supporting young people.

Portishead Arts needs your help to make our creative community event a roaring success!

We want at least 30 artists from the North Somerset and greater Bristol area to come to Hall & Woodhouse on 5th Aug to create brand new pieces influenced by our beautiful Marina using materials provided by Portishead Arts. At the same time, we’d like you to support and inspire 20 budding young artists from Portishead’s schools as well as a further 50 super-keen local residents to make their very own art - and you can do that by just coming along and taking part!

The work will be created throughout the day on Saturday 5th August, and will then be hung as an art trail around the Marina on Sunday 6th.

We’ll crowdfund to supply paint, brushes and primed boards, although you are of course more than welcome to bring your own materials - the most important part of this event will be your involvement in this very public attempt to engage the community in making their own art.

We hope the event will also play an important part in showcasing the incredible range of creative talent that we have on our doorsteps in this beautiful corner of the world and inspire the next generation of artists in the town.

Our sponsors, who will contribute £25 each, will be given one of the artworks at random as a memento of this extraordinary event. Any proceeds will be donated to local causes.

As well as the mass ‘paint-off’, Portishead Arts will be giving demonstrations and hosting workshops in a range of media throughout the Saturday. Celebrations will continue on the following day as the first Marina Arts Trail will be open for all to come along and enjoy on Sunday 6th Aug.
