Les will be showing new work that continues to explore the liminal space between 2 and 3 dimensions by revisiting older work and ideas. Much of the work is larger than that permitted in the general members’ exhibitions.
During August we shall be open as follows:-
Wed - Sat 10.30 - 5 pm
From September we hope to be back to our previous full opening hours.
Coming later in July is the next solo show. This will feature work from Anja Penger-Onyett, Janet Cook and Sue Melville. One for the diary!
Only a few more days to catch Anthony MacKay's show at the gallery. So come on down and meet the artist between 1.30pm and 3pm.
For the immediate future, we will be open
Tue - Fri 11am - 3pm
Saturday 10.30am - 4.30pm
We are pleased to welcome Jane Fairer as a new member to the Eagle Gallery. Visit her page to see more of her work.
The gallery is scheduled to re-open for its Christmas show on Saturday 5th December and will be open Tuesdays - Saturdays 10.30 - 4.30 until December 24th.
Due to a second lockdown we are now closed again and hope to re-open when we are allowed. We will keep you posted on the web site.
Join us, Cecilia Gatehouse and Jill Taylor, at the Eagle Gallery, Bedford, for our joint exhibition Inside/Outside.
We will show new work made during 2020 when we started to see inside and outside in a very different way.
Cecilia makes wall sculpture using wire as a drawing medium. Her pieces are mostly figurative taking her images from life drawing, photographs and her own imagination, as well as from shapes and patterns in the natural world. She sometimes backs the 'wire drawings' with pieces of painted and stitched fabrics and incorporates beads, buttons and lace to achieve substance, colour, and texture.
Jill is an abstract painter who begins by playing and experimenting. She works with shapes, colour and rough texture until they reveal surprises. "I let the paintings speak to me whilst working on them until suddenly there comes a point where I take control, but keep the energy and freedom that I experienced at the beginning." In this series of paintings she has abstracted her feelings and impressions from earlier this year. "So much changed in March 2020. I came to cherish freedom outside."
The exhibition will be open Wednesdays to Saturdays between 11th and 21st November, from 11 am till 4.30 pm.
We will both be attending throughout the exhibition and would love to meet you, but in these difficult times we hope you will understand the need to put unusual measures in place that are aimed at your safety and comfort.
