Green Door Art Trail
We’re looking forward to exhibiting art from three local artists over the weekend of the 29th & 30th of September as part of the Green Door Art Trail 2018 when 63 artists will be taking part in 26 venues across South Cumbria and North Lancashire. We’ll then be extending the exhibition beyond the weekend and into the start of November.
Our three talented artists are:
Marjorie describes herself as a ‘true Cumbrian”She was born into a farming family, a background which gives her an acute understanding of the shapes, colours,smells and patterns in the ancient landscape near her home.
Working en plein air, sketching, painting, and storing information to make work informed by being in the landscape in amongst the elements, often returning to the same place time a time again.
Back in the studio, she works with keen energy and expressiveness .
David Pooley is an established Cumbrian artist whose work is inspired by the stunning local countryside.
A self taught artist, David works with a variety of media to produce exciting, vibrant art which is full of character. His work includes sheep, cows and a range of British wildlife, all captured in his own vivid style.
Geraldine is an artist printmaker based in Kendal. She explores experimental printmaking, drawing on her other interests in ceramics, textiles and painting.
Her work captures moments of her journeys in the Alps, and fell running in the Lakes. With inspiration from rock and mountain, she mixes techniques and disciplines to create very personal images.
We’re pleased to once again be exhibiting pieces by Caren and Peter Threlfall. The work will be on sale in the café until January 2019 and is produced in their family studio in Arnside, where both artists live and work.
Caren uses wool and silk fibres in a ‘painterly’ way in order to create textural moody felt pieces that depict, landscapes, seascapes and floral designs. As well as felt, Caren works in other textile media including: Batiks, Silk Paintings, Hand Made Silk Paper pieces and Devore.
Peter paints mostly in acrylics. His subjects range from Landscapes, Seascapes, Cityscapes and also figurative paintings of Cockle Pickers and Fishermen in Morecambe Bay. All are vibrant and full of texture, as well as being expressive. Peter enjoys interpreting the interplay of light in his work.
