Join us by Zoom as we explores the mixed exhibition Wood | In The Grain
This April, The Gallery brings together several artists whose practice is immersed in making furniture, sculpture and objects from wood. In the Grain will help us welcome Spring to The Gallery as we recognise the richness and diversity of artworks made in wood. Craftsmanship is key; each artists’ technical genius and understanding of the medium comes from deep, personal engagement with sustainability and the environment. The Gallery will be filled with examples from familiar and current artists alongside emerging talent. From Scotland, we are delighted to showcase the furniture of Angus Ross, who has a studio and workshop in Perthshire, and Adrian McCurdy, who is based in the Scottish Borders. We have an enigmatic hazel sculpture by Lizzie Farey who lives and works in Dumfries and Galloway. In the Grain also pays tribute to the late Tim Stead (1952-2000) and we are delighted to be showing the magnificent King Chair, 1985, in The Gallery. From the rest of the UK, we have examples by artists The Gallery has represented over several decades, including the eminent furniture makers and sculptors Jim Partridge and Liz Walmsley, alongside Edward Teasdale’s chests, made from reclaimed wood. We are delighted to be able to include an example of Anthony Bryant’s outstanding woodturning. New to The Gallery are Barnaby Ash and Dru Plumb, who together are known as Ash & Plumb. Based in Brighton, they have given us a beautiful series of hand turned vases. We are also taking this opportunity to present Tim Willey’s sustainable carved wooden vessels. Welcome to the warmth and humanity of In The Grain.
Exhibiting artists include: Gary Allson, Anthony Bryant, Ash & Plumb, Lizzie Farey, Owen Jones, Adrian McCurdy, Jim Partridge & Liz Walmsley, Angus Ross, Edward Teasdale, The Tim Stead Trust, Tim Willey
