CURRENT EXHIBITION: SUMMER DAYS
24TH MAY 2018 until SEPTEMBER
This exhibition celebrates Summer in all its glory – the flowers, the woodlands, the sea.
We have a new collection of marvellous embroideries made by Carole Dawber. These colourful depictions of Meadows and Woodlands are strewn with delicate flowers.
We are also pleased to be showing for the first time the flower paintings of Rachel Kellett. Using a rnage of mixed media she depicts our native flora with an original touch.
Local artist Fay Collins depicts our landscape in a beautifully delicate and detailed way invoking a sense of tranquillity. We have a number of her original paintings on show in this exhibition.
In addition we are excited to introduce you to a new glass maker – Matt Adkins – his methods of fusing and sculpting glass result in amazing pictures of almost 3D like curling and crashing waves.
And we are highlighting our summer themed jewellery by Fi Mehra. If you like boats, beach huts, starfish and shells, we have pieces you will love – pendants and earrings.
Artroom Gallery was established in September 2007 with the aim of highlighting talented UK artists and designer-makers, giving the public the opportunity to purchase special, unique, hand – crafted artworks. Lancashire and northern artists feature prominently, many of whom are members of Lancashire Makers, some from Garstang.
Artwork is carefully selected by owner Helen Carr with the emphasis on beauty, quality, and originality. The Artroom Gallery streams with light making it an ideal space for viewing art and craft. Helen has a degree in art history and will offer advice and knowledge about the artwork offering help with selection, sourcing and hanging of pieces.
The gallery presents a range of affordable, unique hand-crafted artworks including paintings, prints, ceramics, glassware, and designer crafted, jewellery, textiles and items made of wood.
Exhibitions are held seasonally to showcase the work of particular artists and designer-makers.
