Bath Society will be joining us in St Ives this summer, when members exhibit their work at St Ives Society of Artists Mariners Gallery, from 15 July-1 August, 2014, so put a note in those diaries now, because this is one not to be missed!

Two artworks I love....

A silent fundraising auction organised by Kate Walters on behalf of the Cornish branch of the organisation Freedom from Torture held at the Millennium Gallery, St Ives, in November/December 2013, was supported by many talented artists who donated works on paper - across a wide range of subject matter and techniques.  More info here

I happened to walk by in the first week of December and was struck by Sarah Gillespie's dramatic 'Crow' displayed in the gallery window, just had to go in to see what else was on show and impulsively bid for both the Crow and Sam Bassett's 'Untitled' (even though Christmas was looming and I really shouldn't have).  I was delighted to learn a few days later that both bids were successful - and here they are.  Click to enlarge, copyright belongs to each artist.


'Crow' by Sarah Gillespie, artist proof on paper
Love this and also the positioning of the image on the page

'Untitled' by Sam Bassett, mixed media on card
