Rebecca Harvey, Christopher Witchall & Christine Calow
Wednesday July 31st 6-8pm
The Upper Gallery - Rebecca Harvey
Pots for Flowers, a collection of ceramic vessels.

Exhibition continues to 29th September.

The shapes and colours are inspired by Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arranging; the beauty of nature in Rebecca’s garden; the wooded valley; the Cornish hedgerows.

To see a World in a grain of sand
And heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

Fragments from ‘Augeries of Innocence’ 
William Blake

The Lower Gallery - Christopher Witchall
Exhibition continues to 29th September

Christopher Witchall is a realist artist whose subjects include Landscape, Seascapes and Urban Landscape.

His paintings are inspired by a passion for the painting process and a fascination with the photographic image, combining traditional painting techniques with the realism and cool detachment of photography.

Recently, he has been working on small scale paintings, creating a greater intimacy between the work and viewer.

The Sitting Room - Christine Calow - 1st-31st August 
Richly coloured and textured silkscreen prints and paper collages;
"The process of silkscreen printing gives me the freedom to experiment with vibrant colour combinations and textures. I am fascinated by the ways in which colour can be used to define pictorial depth, to create mood and evoke emotion."
Currently showing until July 28th
Upper Gallery & Sitting Room
A mixed show of new work from Christopher Marvell, Angela Mellor and more.
Barrie Houghton - Lower Gallery
For over twenty years I have been showing my work at the Fire Engine, there is something very special about this house – perhaps the nature of my work suits the domestic setting – after all, I like storytelling, weather and atmosphere. Over the years I’ve had exhibitions in a great number of galleries - but it is always a pleasure to come back to this beautiful space.
