Eleonora Knowland: retrospective exhibition at The Bank

Eleonora Knowland : RETROSPECTIVE

eleonora-knowland-art-exhibition-suffolk

The themes that seem to be a constant in my work are light, colour and simplicity. I aim to get to the essence of what I am painting without too much information getting in the way. I like the viewer to bring their own emotions and experiences to the work when they spend time looking at it.

Collecting together work for the retrospective has been very interesting, giving me an overview to my approach. I have also found it enjoyable seeing the work again; they feel like old friends.

Here are some pictures from the exhibition:

ARTWORKS: Meet the Artist : Katie Millard

Today, Saturday 13 September 2014, Katie Millard will be Artwork’s artist in residence at the Artworks exhibition at Blackthorpe Barn. She will be in the demonstration area of the Artworks exhibition from 10.15 am to 4.30 pm.

artworks2011-katiemillard

 

Katie Millard exhibits widely in the East Anglian region and is well known for her expressive and spontaneous watercolours of the wild and unspoilt places of north Norfolk, a coastal region she frequently visits. More recently, she has begun exploring bold elements of abstraction in her work. Katie says: I work very quickly, straight onto thick watercolour paper with only a brush and the flow of the paint to dictate the outcome.

Stay tuned to the Artworks blog for exhibition news and updates, as a different artist will be demonstrating in the Artworks exhibition each day. Or why not follow us on Twitter: @ARTWORKS_tweets.

Two new exhibitions: Eleonora Knowland and Liz Waugh McManus

Two Artworks artists, Eleonora Knowland and Liz Waugh McManus, have solo exhibitions opening next weekend. Interestingly, both exhibitions feature colour and light as a means to express ideas about memory, time and a sense of place. Eleonora Knowland is a painter concerned with landscape and Liz Waugh McManus is a multi-media artist who works with glass and projected film.

Eleonora Knowland originally developed painting on curved canvases as a way of expressing the undulating surface of the East Anglian landscape, but they have now become an intricate part of her artwork. A recent trip to Australia has inspired a new collection of paintings. The colours in these canvases speak of a hotter climate, stronger, and bolder, with an intensity of light.

A quick gallery visit to the ARTWORKS shop, take a browse!

Here at the Artworks blog we thought we would share a few pictures of our Artworks shop at Blackthorpe Barn (further details of the main Artworks exhibition are below).

Sculptural ceramics by Kate Reynolds

The Artworks shop is always popular with visitors, offering up small delights & serendipitous finds, often artwork direct from the studios of Artworks artists and not previously exhibited.

Elaine Nason cards, work by Genista Dunham & Mac MaCaughan

The Artworks shop stocks small paintings, unframed prints and drawings, collage, sculptural artworks including ceramics, metalwork, glass and papier maché, together with a wonderful variety of handmade artist cards, greetings cards and artist postcards.

Most artists have prints, paintings or drawings in these browsers

Read more about setting up and managing the Artworks shop from Gillian Crossley-Holland, a founder artist member of Artworks.

Glass by Liz Waugh-McManus, cards by Christine McKechnie

Most Artworks artists exhibiting in the main Artworks exhibition also have a small selection of their work in the Artworks shop. Artists who are taking a sabbatical year out also contribute artwork to the Artworks shop.

You will find all styles and genres of art on display, from abstract to figurative, with all work in the shop available to be purchased and taken away on the same day of purchase. It is rather like an organised artist’s open studio set-up, comprised of many artists work on display. We accept cash and debit card payments on all purchases.

Together with the Artworks Café, the Artworks shop provides a most relaxing & informal atmosphere to browse all things art, from postcards (all at 50p!) to original paintings, handcrafted prints and small affordable sculptures.

The Artworks exhibition is open daily 10am to 5pm, from 7th – 29th September 2013. You can read more about all the Artworks artists here (or see the left sidebar for direct links to individual artists).

Artworks artist today is…Eleonora Knowland: sketch to painting!

Today, Wednesday 18 September 2013, Artworks artist Eleonora Knowland will be demonstrating how she develops ideas from sketches into paintings in the Artworks exhibition.
Eleonora Knowland : From Sketch to Painting


Eleonora Knowland develops her ideas from small sketches and drawings into much larger paintings, using colour, form and texture to express ideas and emotions about the landscape, as she says: it is ‘the the quality of dealing with ideas rather than events’, and this is the focus of my work
