It’s three for the price of one at the Brewhouse Gallery space as three artists show their very different types of work.
18 August – 19 October - Rebecca Soanes - Photographs
Rebecca says, "I am a passionate landscape photographer living locally, within the National Forest, who also loves to put ‘people in the picture!’ I’ve always had a love of nature but only began trying to capture what caught my eye with photography in the last few years. My company ‘Scene through the eye of a lens’ was set up in January 2011 as a vehicle to share these images with others. I now also enjoy working as a wedding, portrait & children’s photographer capturing a relaxed style in a natural environment." Rebecca’s framed photographs are for sale at just £30 each.
18 August – 23 September - Jenny Blant
For many years Jennifer taught in Derbyshire and Staffordshire schools, and with children and adults with learning and psychiatric difficulties, including major community arts projects throughout the Midlands, before gaining her BA(Hons) in Fine Art at Derby University in 1998.
Jennifer’s studio practice is based in a large shed at the top of her rampant garden, where she works mainly in paint, but also in photography and glass. She has exhibited her work throughout the Midlands and in the Hebrides and Orkney. Currently her work is to do with Horizons, exploring the energy created by the dichotomy of two elements (physical, emotional, spiritual) appearing to meet but never actually doing so.
Some of her work takes the form of a more expressionistic response to personal experience. And her work is also simply to do with paint.
Open Gallery - 18 August – 23 September - Ian Talbot
‘Wood on Walls III’
In its third year, and back in the Brewhouse, the installation of Ian Talbot’s quirky Wood Art is getting bigger and better.
This year sees some old ideas with a new twist and the start of Wood Turning and Carving, coming together to form a touchable and sensual exhibition.
The exhibitions are free to visit, and there is a selection of local crafts on display in our craft cases as well as the three main exhibitions, so there is sure to be something for just about everyone.
Deputy Leader for Service Commissioning Councillor Bernard Peters said: “We are delighted to have such an exciting range of top quality exhibitions at the Brewhouse during September and October.
“The talent on display is wonderful and I would urge people to come and take a look at what the Brewhouse has got to offer.”
The Brewhouse is open from Monday to Friday from 9am to 8pm, and on Saturdays from 9am – 5pm.
