Mixed exhibitions are held at Hookshouse in Spring and Autumn.
They usually include the work of three or four painters, printmakers or photographers, and four or five craft makers, who may be working in leather, wood, metal, glass, textiles or clay. Each exhibition includes two or three 'new' exhibitors, and has a different 'feel' from the one before.
Hookshouse Pottery Autumn Exhibition – ‘Lighting the Dark’
Saturday October 26th to Sunday November 3rd, 10am to 5pm
The autumn exhibition this year aims to light up the darkness, which will soon be upon us, with our creativity and optimism!
We have an exceptional line up of new and familiar exhibits, some which actually deliver light, and some which we hope may simply induce your face to light up with a smile!
We have two artists new to exhibiting here - Angela Scrivin with her wonderfully atmospheric watercolour landscapes and wildlife studies, and Chris Norman, who will be showing a range of prints, notably some really dramatic landscapes. Rachel Vynne, whose skills in animal and human portraiture have amazed us before, is with us again, and we are very pleased to welcome back Andy Cash with a completely new collection of his evocative photographic studies.
New to our makers section are Sally Brooks showing uniquely appealing raku clocks, Sally Dove with a selection of beautifully designed lampshades, and Anna Newton’s scintillating scarves and cushions in rich fabrics. Returning after a break are Jo Stafford Michael, whose jewellery brings loads of colour and light to the show and, potentially, to the wearer, and Liz Dart, with exquisite stained glass panels large and small - they positively glow and sparkle! And your resident potter has enjoyed tuning in to the theme and making a batch of pots specifically designed to radiate light.
Outdoor Theatre 2020
P.S. For those of you who are Pantaloons addicts, we can announce that they will be presenting a new version of ‘Sherlock Holmes’ in their inimitable style on Saturday July 4th. Plenty of time to get it into next year’s diary!
Door prices are £12 adult and £8 under 14. Advance tickets are now available at £10 adult and £6 under 14. We can send tickets to you on receipt of payment and an SAE, or we can keep them for you to collect on arrival for the performance. Reservations by phone (01666 880297) or email (hookshouse@hotmail.co.uk) will need to be confirmed by sending payment before the tickets are issued.
We look forward to welcoming you to Hookshouse once more this summer.
Mailing List
As from the next exhibition, we plan to send hard copy mailings only to those who specifically request them. We have made this decision partly because of the sudden jump in the cost of 2nd class stamps, and partly because we find that more and more people are comfortable with email. It does of course also save paper, which makes us feel a little bit virtuous!
Please can you let us know what you would like us to do, by email, phone or post, or by telling us when you visit this next exhibition.
1. Continue sending by post
2. Send invitation by email
3. Stop
If we don’t hear from you, we will assume you would like us to stop bothering you!
