QUIETLY CONNECTED - LUCY SUGDEN
Glimpse into a woven world of nature and gardens in Lucy’s one-week solo show at The Wynd Gallery. Lucy is a woven tapestry artist who loves to weave with fishing line!
A love of light play and garden life inspires much of her work which she creates using traditional woven tapestry techniques on an upright loom, and her own exploration of the tapestry processes on the circle loom.
‘My work explores a fascination of light play, combining fibres and a love of nature. It is important to me to maintain a sustainable art practice by recycling and upcycling fibres where possible, which has become an integral part of how I work’.
To accompany her exhibition Lucy is holding a series of events at The Wynd Gallery. Tapestry sampler workshops on Monday 23 rd October, family weaving workshops on Wednesday 25 th Octoberand she is hosting one of her talks on the evening of Thursday 26 th October. For full information of these events please visit her website on the following link lucysugden.co.uk

ALCHEMY OF COLOUR
22nd - 30th JULY 2023
Naini Ahluwalia & Sara Button present the Alchemy of Colour Exhibition this July at the Wynd Gallery, Letchworth.
This exhibition brings together two artists for whom expressive colour is an intrinsic feature of their work. Exploring the power of colour to connect on an emotional level, Naini and Sara create unique, optically dynamic paintings which have impact but also draw the viewer in,
inviting closer inspection.
Naini Ahluwalia is a contemporary minimalist artist creating original works in a wide variety of mediums, although she is most at home painting in oil on canvas. Her original paintings possess a sense of exhilaration and inner movement that shifts through the viewer’s visual senses.
When observing Naini’s work one gets a sense of effortless movement and full expression.
Sara Button creates expressive paintings predominantly inspired by the natural world. An exploration of light, pattern and rich colour combinations to evoke energy and rhythm are the primary features of her work. Sara’s paintings arise out of close observation as she tries to
absorb the beauty and feel of her focus and represent these in a loosely expressive style.

17th - 24th SEPTEMBER 2022
Award winning artist Nade Simmons opens the doors on her first solo show ‘Wanderwild’ this September. In an exhibition that encompasses her textile art and paintings in one setting, ‘Wanderwild’ focuses on a childhood growing up in the beautiful Chilterns.
The show takes you through a series of grouped works including the almost carnival-like ‘Fantasy-land’ paintings referencing hidden dew ponds and hot air balloons. There are miniature abstracted ‘stitch-paintings’ depicting craggy rocks, observational oil studies of wild scrumped fruits and the original bold and colourful embroidered florals that Nade is known for.
The show is a riot of Nade’s trademark vivid colours and bold textures and a fantastic opportunity to view a wide variety of the disciplines used within her art practice.
