Liminal: In Between Two Spaces

We are pleased to announce a new exhibition, Liminal: In Between Two Spaces, by Natalya Best-Forbes at Platform1, East Dulwich. The private view will take place on Monday 25th January 2016 and the exhibition will continue until Saturday 30th January 2016. The exhibition will feature twelve pieces by Natalya. All the pieces are photographs of the stratosphere. Despite the continual theme, each piece captures a completely different view; therefore, no two pieces are the same. Thus, the collection as a whole illustrates the ever changing, yet constant beauty of our sky. Natalya Best-Forbes is a young, local artist, born and raised in South East London, and this will be her debut exhibition. She is a history graduate with a passion for photography and has been collecting cameras for over a decade. She has always been inspired by travel and these incredible images are a must-see. The photographs featured in this exhibition are un-edited and, for her, this exhibition highlights the phenomenal changes in landscape that can occur in a matter of seconds. These dramatic changes …

LAMPLIGHT: A Celebration of Childhood paintings at Jane Newbery Gallery

Lamplight is an exciting new solo exhibition of watercolour paintings by award winning artist Victoria Rachel Brook, widely-acknowledged as one of the most exceptionally-talented emerging young illustrators of her generation. Victoria’s imaginative, magical images of children and animals have already secured her a well-deserved reputation as a first-class illustrator and artist among collectors and the general public alike. The demand for her limited edition giclee prints at Jane Newbery and her other represented galleries in Godalming and Eastbourne has been overwhelming. Victoria’s exhibition at the Jane Newbury Gallery will feature original pieces available for sale for the first time, as well as a selection of her work from the last five years since turning professional after graduating from the University of Reading with a first-class honours degree in Fine Art. Victoria began her career creating large scale installation pieces with fellow artist Caroline Fletcher. Their critically acclaimed mobile arts venue ‘The Pink Bus’ was toured around the UK’s galleries and festivals, from the Royal West of England Academy in Bath to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and …

‘This way for Fun’ exhibition at the Jeannie Avent Gallery

This way for Fun is an exhibition on at the Jeannie Avent Gallery from 10th-20th April. The show will be a collection of limited edition prints produced by the Penfold Press, a Yorkshire based print studio who work with prominent British illustrators. The Penfold Press was opened in 2005 by Daniel Bugg as a print studio where artist and designers could collaborate in the production of limited edition prints. Dan Bugg studied at the Royal College of Art in Printmaking and uses his extensive knowledge to work with, an exciting group of talented individuals. The Penfold Press has gone on to publish editions of prints by Mark Hearld, Emily Sutton, Ed Kluz and Jonny Hannah. The print above ‘E is for Elephant’ is part Emily Sutton’s Alphabet Series. Since beginning her collaboration with the Penfold Press in 2010, Emily’s Alphabet Series has become highly sought after with many in the series now completely sold out. Emily has illustrated books for the Victoria & Albert Museum, Faber and Faber, Random House, Penguin and Walker Books; and undertaken design commissions for Betty’s of Harrogate (for a new range of Christmas products), Fortnum & Mason and Hermes. In 2011 she was …

Judith Robertson comes to Jeannie Avent Gallery

Coming to Jeannie Avent gallery on 21st January is an exhibition of the work of Judith Robertson, a local artist whose speciality is print making. After having written on art and played at the edges of it for years, Judith Robertson found her niche when she undertook a part-time printmaking course at Morley College. Here she studied etching, collograph and lino printing, eventually deciding that lino printing suited her style. She now works from a studio in her home. Much of her inspiration comes from the countryside, taking photographs when out walking, then interpreting these. The colours are broken down to a minimum, the lines emphasised, with details and texture finally added. Her images include some recently taken from the Thames estuary – a contrast with the more rural scenes taken from walks, and scenes round East Dulwich. Come and see Goose Green, Dulwich Woods in Winter and Peckham Rye at Dusk in print! www.dulwichprints.co.uk
