Wed 2nd Sep – Thu 28 Oct, 2021

Open Mon – Fri,10am  - 2pm. Free Entry 

After the past year and a half in which have been filled with anxiety and grief, it’s a good time to consider the healing power of art. Does art heal? Does it facilitate healing for the viewer or the artist or both? What do you consider the healing power of art? Is it something you think about as you create or as you view art?

It doesn’t matter if you are producing art or viewing it to discover its healing power. Looking at art is beneficial for people’s health just as much as producing it. There are many studies that suggest that surrounding yourself with art is an effective way of preventing and treating a variety of conditions. Museum visits help reduce stress in people by taking them away from the busyness and stresses of  life by immersing them into a more tranquil environment.

This exhibition focuses on colour and images that you can immerse yourself in helping you to relax and de-stress including florals, animals & the seaside, encouraging us all to look ahead to better times ahead. This exhibition is part of The Northants Open Studio Event.

ANGELA STANBRIDGE MA (Fine Art)

Angela is a botanical artist who adds a modern & abstract twist to her work that draws you to look at flowers in a new light. She has had work selected for the Society of Botanical Artists Annual Exhibition in London & The Society of Women Artists Exhibition plus has exhibited at The Rugby Art Gallery & Museum, The Charles Rennie Mackintosh House & Galleries, 78 Derngate, Northampton & The Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery.

MINNIE TECKMAN BA (Fine Art)

Minnie Teckman is an artist who values drawing in her work. She enjoys using a variety of materials such as charcoal, ink and paint to explore what she sees and feels, her work is expressive in nature and does not always seek to represent what she sees exactly but to convey a sense of energy and otherness. Drawing from life brings with it challenges, as she often features animals in her work, who never stay still. During the pandemic, she explored plants in her garden and produced a series of sketches from life, developing them into more colourful paintings.

 

PETER B ALMOND BA (Fine Art)

 

A lifelong interest in nature initiated during my childhood growing up in the Wyre Valley in Lancashire is the impulse behind this series of oil paintings.  Beachcombing along the shorelines of North Norfolk and Cornwall has provided a rich source of inspiration.
