Fisherton Mill is key venue to showcase artists
2:49pm Wednesday 11th September 2013 in Entertainments
FISHERTON Mill will be a key host venue for the Salisbury Art Trail.
Eight diverse Salisbury artists will be showing their work at the venue – Walter Cherry, Yvette Canon, Angela Corben, Paul Donovan, Amanda Fisher, Sandra Hammer, Peter Matthews and Jo Pudney.
Cherry was head of art at the city’s Godolphin School for more than 20 years.
He uses a striped format to express colour and tonal harmonies, discords and rhythms.
Corben’s work is inspired by nature, such as landscapes in the New Forest, Dorset and Wiltshire, together with natural forms.
The paintings all feature scenes near Salisbury.
Donovan is inspired by dynamic human form experienced in the everyday. He sculpts clay figures and his ceramic glazes are based on flints found in the Wiltshire landscape.
Fisher has been drawing the human body for more than years, enjoying both static poses and especially those with movement.
Hammer works directly from the Wiltshire landscape. Her paintings are bold and colourful and her aim is to capture some of the energy and movement evident in the countryside around her studio in Porton.
Matthews will be in exhibiting paintings in oil and watercolour, together with a number of prints. Memory, desire and identity are the main themes of his works.
And Pudney is exhibiting a series of works entitled Eden – Gardens of Paradise.
The paintings are produced on wooden panels and follow the tradition of egg tempera painting. Jo sought inspiration for these works from her studies of both Eastern and Medieval Arts.
Fisherton Mill owner Deborah Fox said: “Salisbury Art Trail provides a significant way for us to continue to showcase and support the fantastic artistic community that Salisbury enjoys.
“Salisbury’s visual artists have really raised the bar this year, and on display at Fisherton Mill will be an array of striking exhibits in a range of media.”
