EVENTS & EXHIBITIONS

INFINITE

20TH - 28TH JULY 2024

INFINITE

Victoria's solo exhibition showcases her work on paper, board and canvas. She values the freedom to explore various mediums and supports, as she believes it keeps her art practice invigorated.

Regardless of whether the source material is an abstracted landscape view or an interpretation of an aerial perspective, Victoria employs a consistent technique. She applies layers of paint, ink, and mixed media. Using different tools, she adapts her mark-making to blend shapes, colours, and textures, all of which are important to her.

"I am delighted to be presenting ‘INFINITE’.

INFINITE embraces variety. This exhibition brings to The Wynd Gallery Letchworth, interpretations of the landscape on paper, board and canvas.

I continue my investigation into Abstracting the Landscape and Aerial Views, and am excited to share my artwork with you."

Please 'wander down the Wynd' and come and meet Victoria, she will be in the gallery 20-28th 10-4pm (excluding 25th July) inviting you to enjoy the artwork and if you wish, have a chat about her art practice, tools and techniques.

 

Join me at the Private View or as I’d prefer to call it the ‘Opening Event’ of INFINITE on Saturday 20th July from 5.00-8.00pm ish.

I’d love to hear from you if you can attend. If this is a difficult date for you please do try to visit on any of the other days. Please note I will not be at the Gallery on Thursday 25th but one of the other gallery artists will be in attendance.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Best wishes
Victoria

TAKING TIME

1ST - 9TH JUNE 2024

Taking Time Exhibition : Claire Pringle, Graham A. Matthews and David Holmes

‘Taking Time’ explores the relationship between nature, entropy and perception.
Whether it's the time eroding effects of wind and water on drift wood, or the fossil like imprints of life on ceramic, or the appearance of the slowing down of time through photographs, the three collections of work, suggest to the viewer to slow down and to take their time....

creating an atmosphere or an unexpected detail energising the stillness, creating diffused light, the
quiet moment and the beauty of nature.

connect with. His beautiful photographs portray both recognisable and abstract scenes of nature,
with the coast being a firm favourite. This collection of images has been built up over the last few
years, around the 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.

WANDERWILD

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.
