There will also be art by Jamie Condon, (see image above) Sculpture by Joanne Horrobin and jewellery by Holly Webb
Jamie is an artist living and working in Somerset, England. Born in Surrey in 1969, despite offers to study at both Kingston and Wimbledon Schools of Art, he rejected a formal art education and is entirely self taught.He favours acrylics for their vivid colours and fast drying properties, layering paint with brushes and palette knives. He loves to move through styles of painting, one minute painting a realist portrait, the next an impressionistic piece. He likes playing with light in his work using high contrast shadows, depths of light and shade and highlighting the effects of light bleeding through objects. He is very inspired by music and often gives the paintings musically inspired titles!His subject matter is many and varied, though nature and human figures often feature in his work. He sometimes likes to incorporate local, Somerset inspired images into his work, reflecting his love of the county he now calls home. This can range from local buildings and landmarks to the flowers, butterflies and people of the Somerset Levels.
Joanne combines her love of colour with metal to create small-scale sculpture and vessels.Using traditional metalwork techniques taught by her father Joanne forms and planishes copper and then hot fuses vitreous enamel at 800 degrees to create unique designs. The enamel design and colours are intuitive, of the moment and unique.Each piece is individual with its form and design being considered at every stage. The work is finished with a bronze patina on the outer side and elevated on wood bases.Joanne’s main influence comes from living on Exmoor, and the study of land and sea scape, this has inspired her to create pieces of work that preserve memories, of colours, intricate designs for example of a butterfly wing and the lines that have been ploughed onto a field.
Holly trained as a designer jeweller at Loughborough College of Art and Design, graduating in 1978. She lives and works on the beautiful Somerset Levels in the hamlet of Thorney where she produces an eclectic mix of hand made jewellery, mostly in gold and silver and often incorporating semi precious stones.
