Spring Time!

by Imogen Bone
Spring has sprung, the sun is shining and the clocks have sprung forward.  The children are released from school  and the leaves are coming out.  It is a hopeful and bright time of year and our Spring mixed exhibition this year has a theme of "Colour and Shape"
It is full to bursting with wonderful colours, here is a stunning painting by Imogen Bone, literally colour and shape, I love it, so bright and glorious orange against the blue.  Simon Stooks has been taking things literally as well, colours and shapes burst forth from his paintings with Stooksien vitality within the mark making.  Richard Thorn has painted some beautiful, truly beautiful, tree shapes with the essence of spring colour mixed into the sky. He has also poured colour onto a canvas and magicked up a "Mystic Pool" which positively glows with light.

Emma Dunbar is characteristically floral, exuberant bunches of spring flowers blooming out of lovely jugs and mugs and patterning the Dunbar world.  It opens tomorrow and at any moment now the whole collection should be on line.  It is a happy show and well worth visiting, don't worry about petrol or the price of pasties, visit the gallery and let your heart fill up with spring hopefulness.
