TRACY MCGUINNESS KELLY

ANGELA WISEMAN, BARBARA LANGDON
& TINA DAVIES.
Wed 4th Sept – Sat 28th Sept

A fantastic grouping of the 3 girls from all over the UK of unique ceramic works for the garden, the walls and the kitchen.

MARTIN GROVER
Wednesday 3rd July – Saturday 31st August

This former student of the famous Royal Academy Schools has consistently produced intriguing and beguiling work. Not being in possession of a sharp or analytical mind, he sticks to his strengths, which lie in observation and anecdote. A playful narrative thread runs through his work, at one moment a little dark and woebegone and the next humourous and whimsical but always alluring. Working from life, sketches, memory and photographs he reconstructs ephemeral scenes from the passing world. Childhood recollections, minor street incidents, slightly surreal radio traffic bulletins, brief news items, poems, short stories, Brockwell Park landscapes, the enigmatic allure of sheds and shelters are all recalled and captured with clarity and wit. At other times in a more trompe l’oeil (trick of the eye) style he produces very flat still lives of old records in their tattered sleeves and un-coordinated second hand shirt and tie sets

A STITCH FOR YOU
Tuesday 21st May – Sat 29th June

Established in 1906, the Society of Certificated Embroideresses, was founded with the object of keeping a high standard of work and design. The name was changed in the 1920s, to the Embroiderer's Guild and still is the UK's leading crafts association. The first branch was established in 1931, to carry out the work of the Guild, by organising events and members in their area. This Guild's branch, in Bournemouth, was first held by Mrs V Clinch in 1963, for 21 ladies. The group has met in various locations over the years and is now settled at Parley Memorial Hall. It offers a friendly meeting place for like minded people and a comprehensive programme of workshops and lectures. Membership continues at a good level and they are a well known flourishing group.
