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.
