‘Face to the World’
This exhibition offers an opportunity to see the work of 13 artists, each with widely diversified approaches to portraiture. The artists have been chosen by the gallery for their professional skills, but the pieces displayed are the choices of the individuals concerned. One of the artists will be in the gallery each day to enable visitors to chat about the work on show.
The works combine to deliver freshness and challenge to the viewer, encouraging visitors to the gallery to examine the impact of the likenesses created, and the media used; graphite, paint, ceramic and textile.

Patricia McMillan, Moira West and Linda Westerman celebrate human ingenuity, vision and strength. These attributes are explored using a wide variety of materials in a modern and unique expression of industrialisation. Combinations include natural and man-made materials – fabric, fibre, metal, paint, plastic, rope, silk, thread and wire. Installations have been produced as sculptural forms and fascinating wall pieces, each of which is a distinctive one-off work. Working with fibres offers a rich palette of stories, known and unknown.
Explore the artists’ interpretations of industrial life.

Shirley Rodgers, Mosaic Artist
‘Although my professional background is in education I have spent all my life with art in one form or another – interior design, fashion design and tailoring, soft furnishing, painting.
Seven years ago I gave up my career in headship to pursue a dream not deemed ‘appropriate’ when I left school in 1968. During this time I have worked for private and corporate clients, producing commissioned artwork and logos and in an educational setting with primary aged children, whilst working mainly on individual mosaics in my home studio. I make mosaic Kits for children and adults, both pre-cut (rather like a jigsaw) and kits which supply tools and tesserae for free art. I enjoy both the art aspect and the craft aspect of mosaic work. Each provides its own satisfaction and often they overlap.
My inspiration came initially from Ancient Rome, but I am also heavily influenced by Antonio Gaudi, and fell in love with the freedom of his furniture, architecture and mosaic work. From studying his work my imagination took hold and inspiration now comes from many places and directions; Africa, the garden, other artists work, my Christian faith etc etc.’
‘I have exhibited my work in Lincoln, Nottingham, Paris and London. Exhibiting gives me the opportunity to meet people outside of my studio and receive feedback about my work from the public.’
Monday 31st August – Sunday 13th September

The large mixed media figurative works are initially based upon childhood memories and cherished toys drawn from direct observation. Places of emotional significance and costumes are all combined to create a tableau of narrative episodes. They look to explore the transient world that exists between childhood & adulthood.
The deliberate use of distorted perspective is designed to draw attention to the importance a child places upon a personal cherished object and how a child’s world they develop a persona and can appear to be larger than life. The inherent value of nursery rhymes places a prominent role throughout. There is a playful element in the way in which the content of the nursery rhymes has been altered in the images.
Travel and displacement is a theme running throughout the work.
Open daily 11 – 4pm
Tuesday 4th – Sunday 16th August
