Yes we're moving out from Castle Road after 14 years to a refurbished unit in St. Peter's Street. We are assuming the next one week show to be the last exhibition at Castle Road, with our first exhibition at the new venue expected a few weeks after that one closes. This its slightly nebulous at the moment as thing are still being constructed! We'll keep you posted. Join us on our quest and say good-bye to the present gallery too.
We are pleased to bring you a fresh set of work on Janet Cook's pages. It's worth a peek....
As hopefully the summer weather starts to improve it could be time to plan what you might do during in July. Maybe you could fit in a visit to the Eagle Gallery sometime between the 13th to 20th. If you do you will be able to catch the new EcoPop exhibition by Adrian Marden and you will be able to find the answers to some searching questions such as :-
Are smart speakers sexist ?
Do we spend too long indoors ?
Is fashion green ?
Do we drink too much wine ?
Should we dig our gardens ?
Do people still watch B&W TV’s ?
Can products be racist ?
...and much more.
Maybe see you there ?
In art as in life, you never know when you have arrived at where you want to be, or if you ever will. Perhaps the journey is more important than the destination.
In this one-week show Eagle Gallery member Annabel Ossel’s reveals her abstract journey so far, with paintings and collages that draw the viewer with their bold colours and shapes. Playful elements are often incorporated into her works. Annabel creates her collages from cut or torn pieces of paper painted with leftover acrylic paint. The collages in turn can inform new paintings.
Annabel has been a member of the Eagle Gallery for seven years. She exhibits in their regular group shows, as well as smaller ones, such as the recent printmaking and abstraction exhibitions and last year’s Open Studios. Annabel completed a Foundation art course in London before becoming a picture researcher for publishers and other media. She later attained a BA Hons in art history.
“The Butterfly and St.Paul’s” is the third one man show by Eagle Gallery artist Andrew Naish. It will be on for one week between Saturday 11thMay and Saturday 18thMay 2019. The artist will be attending the exhibition every morning during its run. He also invites you to join him on the Sunday (12thMay) between 11am and 4pm, where there will be light refreshments available.
The Exhibition is the first opportunity to see his largest paintings to date “The Butterfly” and “St. Pauls”. Alongside other new work will be some of his favourite pieces from the last eight years, and a wide selection of cards.
The exhibition will take place at The Eagle Gallery, 101 Castle Road Bedford, 11th– 18thMay 2019. 10am – 5pm daily except Sunday 11am – 4pm.
Unfortunately Anthony's exhibition has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. The gallery will still be open for the week with a final chance to catch the current show.
New information relating to Anthony Mackay's one week show is now out:-
An exciting and intriguing exhibition of Anthony Mackay's recent paintings will be on show at the Eagle Gallery in Bedford from 6th April 2019 for a week. Mainly focussed on landscape subjects, there will be an interesting juxtaposition of natural representation and semi-abstraction, with the use of vivid colour and original exploration of physical forms and structure.
Well-known for his ink drawings in a series of books on the landscapes and buildings of the counties around us, his paintings, by contrast, expose the more emotional and interpretive aspects of our surroundings in a glowing series of pictures.
The exhibition will be open everyday including Sundays from 10am until 5.30pm.
We are pleased to announce that Robert Felton has joined the Eagle Gallery. Expect to see his work in our forthcoming shows.
