Made in Glastonbury: Art, craft and images from the Isle of Avalon
Saturday 3rd October - Sunday 31st January 2016
Work by a collective of six local artists will be on show through the autumn and winter. Inspired by the unique Glastonbury environment, they all produce work of the highest quality. Steve Spraggon captures tranquil landscapes in his superb photographs. Kate Dimambro’s paintings are bold and vibrant, while Sue Allen has an eye for shape and design in the natural world and Patrick Franks paints detailed observations. Casey Jon creates distinctive ceramics based on the natural themes and Belinda-Jane Miers’ breathes new life into reclaimed wood. This will be an exciting exhibition with work for sale in a wide range of media.
