Morning Bloggers, here at i2Art gallery on Saturday we had our private view for our exciting new Summer Exhibition. The weather graced us with the perfect day for it; the Pimm’s was going down well! In case anybody missed it, we took some photos for you!
Here is a picture of Gilly Marklew and friend; Gilly is a watercolour artist that is featured in the Summer Exhibition, and also teaches Watercolour Painting and Drawing to adult learners in the Cambridge area.
Annie Hall, talented local portrait artist, with Graz, who is part of the team here at i2Art! Annie also does commission work, which are ideal gifts!
Artist Judy Logan looking wonderfully vibrant by her painting, ‘You are always on my mind’ (above). Judy is a painter and printmaker based in Cambridge. She is part of the Cambridge Artworks Group who are featuring in the Cambridge open studios this weekend.
Lovely Sarah, head of the i2Art team, with Judy next to one of Judy’s innovative aquatint prints, ‘Perfect Landing’.
Althea Braithwaite is a former children’s book writer and publisher, who in 2003 acquired a kiln, which led from hobby to obsession as she produces her beautiful vibrant coloured glass works. Here she is with two of her works, ‘Desert Sand’ (left) and ‘Fen Sunset’ (right).
Annie with two of her larger portraits in charcoal, ‘Self Portrait’ (left) and ’Portrait’ (right), and another Judy Logan crow print, an etching entitled ‘Speed Crow’.
Local art enthusiasts, Alison’s Mum Sonya (right) and good friend Hazel (Left) standing with Alison from the i2Art team.
One of Colin Chetwood’s delicate flower lamps, ‘Baby Bedside Cream Light’ we have here in the i2Art Gallery Summer Exhibition.
Unfortunately Loukas Morely could not make the Private View, but that did not stop us from admiring his beautiful paintings and prints, ‘Gesture (pair)’ (above), and three of his ‘Basket’ prints in Yellow, Cyan and Magenta.
Some more of Loukas’ work including ‘Gesture I’ (right) and ‘Gesture with White’ (left).
Another picture of Althea with fellow glass artist Helen Curtis. Helen is a former analytical chemist, and she has a scientific rather than artistic approach to her work; her scientific influences are clear in her stunning fused glass pieces.
Our Summer Exhibition window display here at the i2Art Gallery, including work by Colin Chetwood (lamp), Katie Lynn (Fused glass flowers in window), Helen Curtis (Fused glass turquoise dish), Sophie Howard (Human form sculptures) and Sue Law, with her Purple Party Shoes, a piece that offers an interesting point of view when looking at sense of space.
The display in another room in our historic building, showing Marc Greco’s lovely bird prints, alongside some of Judy Logan’s smaller pieces, and glass work by Althea Braithwaite, Helen Curtis and Katie Lynn.
That’s it from us at i2Art Gallery, but watch this space for more exciting news about our ‘Summer Exhibition’ and further information on the artists exhibiting.
