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.
Portraits, animal studies and landscapes that have inspired Barrie's unique and original style of painting.
Please join us for the Preview evening of
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."
