‘Five of the Best’, a highly professional group of Somerset artists, with a diverse range of specialisms, will be exhibiting at Ian Marlow’s beautiful sculpture gardens and studio near Frome, during Somerset Arts Weeks this month.
The exhibition features the garden ceramics and thrown porcelain of Christine-Anne Richards, which are influenced by her remarkable journeys to China and Japan.
Precious jewellery and supporting art-work by award winning jeweller Erica Sharpe of Wedmore, show a unique embodiment of story, colour, heritage and emotion.
Steve Frey, will be exhibiting his fascinating carved and coloured glass sculptures which are inspired by soft curves and natural forms, creating mesmerising optical qualities.
Surfaces, textures and colours from the natural world inspire the abstract collagraphs, etchings and collages by the artist Karin Campagna.
Leading sculptor, Ian Marlow ARBS, creates distinctive steel and glass sculptures that are an exploration of our place within the natural world, inspired by the natural forms from the surrounding Somerset countryside.
The exhibition is open from 11am – 6 pm each day for the 2 weeks. At least 3 of the artists will be there each day to chat about their work, and free tea and coffee is available.
Here’s a selection of the work at our Somerset Arts Weeks joint exhibition. Please call in and visit if you can, hope to see you!
