Life at a Standstill

Saturday 6thJuly – Saturday 27th

Private View: Friday 5th July

A collection of still life paintings and prints by Dawn McIntyre

The still life painting emerged as a distinctive genre or category in the 17thcentury. Flowers, foodstuffs and humdrum objects were arranged and painted with a precision that tested artistic skill. Whilst the everyday subject matter and detailed realism gave the still life painting popular appeal, the allegorical symbolism or hidden meaning that these pictures often contained meant that they also appealed to the connoisseur.

The attraction of still life has remained a constant to the present day. Artists continue to welcome the challenge of exploring everyday objects through colour, texture, tonal variation and the play of light. For some artists meticulous realism remains a guiding principle, for others texture, colour and form are their primary concerns.

Painting with Cloth

Saturday 5th – Saturday 2nd November

Textile exhibition by Cas Holmes.

Meet the Artist Evening - Saturday 12th October at 6pm.

The touring exhibition, ‘Painting with Cloth’ by Cas Holmes comes to Queen Street Gallery in October 2019

This exhibition explores the connection between landscape, people and place.  Collecting found materials as she goes, Cas Holmes creates marks with cloth, paint and stitch with a disregard of the divisions of medium usage and application that often define the world of painting and textiles.  Drawing inspiration from the world in front of her, Cas thrives on the challenges of the unforeseen and unexpected. The work on show is as much guided by the materials she works with as it is to her connection to her ideas about landscape and nature. She is fascinated by objects with a story to tell, cast-off sheets and clothing, handwritten papers, and the history of what we do with them and the familiarity they have in our own life.

This exhibition marks the publication of her fourth book, Textile Landscape by Batsford (2018)

This exhibition is available to tour 2020/21

A new media exhibition highlighting the work of Scott Michael, will be showing in our Cwtch Gallery space.

Scott works with both still and moving images to investigate the way we interact physically and psychologically with urban spaces. In this exhibition, the use of a zoom lens further confounds -the distance between the camera and its subject. Scott is fascinated by the urban infrastructure and its effect on the individual. Using a variety of media including video, film, sound, drawing and painting, his work has focused on environments within the urban landscape.
