Mind, Body & Spirit – venue update

mandala_1We’re sorry to have to report that EnergyCreative yoga studios on Beatrice Street is having to close. Apparently they just weren’t able to make the business side work well enough to justify leasing the space.

This means that the Mind, Body & Spirit exhibition is now located in Rowanthorn Fair Trade Clothing and Gifts only. Because of the number of works submitted for the exhibition, I’ll be rotating them through over the course of the show. At present, the exhibition includes works by:

  • Diana Baur
  • Ann Spence
  • Joan Santana
  • Maddy Vale
  • Derek Kelly
  • John Swogger
  • Mandy Whitehouse
  • Sandra Tickle
  • Jacqui Dodds

Next month, they’ll be joined by works by Kate Callaghan-Evans, Jude Greaves, Tony Roberts and Ted Roberts.

Do stop into Rowanthorn in Chapel Court, Oswestry (just opposite Milano’s cafe) and have a look upstairs at the exhibition. It looks good, and will feature in the Oswestry Advertiser next week.

Willow Spring Show!

Inside Out at the Willow Gallery

Great new exhibition has just opened up at The Willow Gallery. Their Spring Show features some fantastic painting, ceramics and sculpture. As usual, Faye has set out an extremely eclectic and diverse show – setting some extremely accomplished figurative works alongside bold abstracts.

Jas Davidson (BVA/Inside Out) and John Wragg (BVA/Inside Out) are in the main gallery – John with large, Op Art-like geometric paintings and Jas with the latest in his series of bronzes mixing the human form with natural textures. They’re joined by Rosie Davies (Inside Out), whose watercolour landscapes are moving further into abstraction of form and colour, and looking both crisp and free at the same time.

Jim Heath and Des Jones are also exhibiting in the Dunbabin Gallery & Community Room for the next three weeks. They are two of our three Studio A1 featured artists for April – Joan Santana is the third, exhibiting down at Studio A1 – and the first of what we hope will be a regular series of Inside Out artists exhibiting in the Dunbabin Gallery.

So although it’s a grey day on the Shropshire borderlands today, there’s plenty of bright art in Oswestry!
