There have been some recent amendments to our exhibition programme from that initially published. "Thinking Big Again" takes place June 16th - 23rd June and the members' show starting on the 25th June now runs through to Saturday 28th June. See the Exhibition Diary page for the latest version.
After a successful weekend of events, we thought it worth reminding you that there's still a lot going on. The "How we do it" exhibition continues at the gallery until 14th June, and many of our artists have open studios at forthcoming weekends. Pick up a brochure from the gallery or download it here.
Apologies for the long download time, we recommend Wi-fi.
Six of our artists have taken up residence at Cottage Farm Nurseries, 312 Cople Road, Cardington where they will be displaying and selling work and creating on site as well. 2-3 artists will be around June 2-3 and 9-10 10am - 4pm.
The new Eagle Gallery exhibition "How we do it" opened this morning. Heralding a series of events over the bank holiday weekend and Open Studios around the area, each artist has also created a supplemental A4 sheet to go into the rational behind their art or the specific work on show.
There's loads to read if you come down to the gallery this month - here's a taster of what to expect.
A highlight of the Eagle Gallery’s ‘How We Do It’ exhibition is a three-day event, over the Bank Holiday, of artists’ demonstrations. This drop-in event features demonstrations on the portrait, printmaking, collage, painting with wool fibres, watercolour, ceramics, stitching and experimenting with acrylic, culminating on Monday afternoon with an illustrated talk by architect and artist Anthony Mackay on designing a city.
The exhibition itself runs from May 21 to June 14 centres around explanatory statements from our artists and contains our normal range of art, ceramics, glass and jewellery as well as cards and unframed work in browsers.
For those who like to get out and about there are also 8 open studios to visit, providing the opportunity to talk to artists in their working environment and see a wider range of their work.
In addition there are some small group exhibitions at Cottage Farm Nurseries, Cardington.
Further details are available in the gallery and at www.eaglegalleryartists.co.uk.
Nine demonstrations / talks will take place at the gallery on the forthcoming spring bank holiday weekend. See our events page for more information.
‘Escapes’ is an exhibition of paintings and photography by Eagle Gallery artists Patricia Ellis, Keith Wells and Sue Wookey. Using a range of media to capture their experiences but also joined by a deep love of watercolour, the artists present an escape into real and imagined journeys and encounters.
