Ruth McCabe: Open Studio & Art Sale on Saturday 23rd September 2017

Ruth McCabe: Open Studio and Sale on Saturday 23rd September 2017.

A retrospective showing work in a variety of media, from large to very small will be available to see and buy.

Those curious to explore the journey I’ve made since I began to paint in 1997 will be able to enjoy the collection, arranged chronologically.

A brief intro…

My earliest pieces were often painted in acrylic like these limes, a large piece…

ruth-mccabe-acrylic-painting-still-life-limes

A few years later, having switched to oils, my work was still pursuing figurative forms…

ruth-mccabe-oil-painting-figurative

….but also abstraction, like this piece – a response to a walk in spring woodland…

ruth-mccabe-painting-spring-woodland

….and this even more abstract response to sunlight on a favourite footpath I walk regularly…

ruth-mccabe-painting-path-woodland

This later oil is based on returning to my Yorkshire roots and shows the beginning of a period in which I enjoyed using texture.

ruth-mccabe-painting-yorkshire-landscape-texture

Two more textured oils from this period… “Snow Ewes” and “Spring Surge”

ruth-mccabe-painting-snow-ewes

ruth-mccabe-painting-spring-surge

At this time I would often apply white oil, creating texture with the palette knife, then once dry, rub other pigments onto the textured surface with my finger. Loved it!

Boats were a regular subject in these years, loving their rounded forms and general buoyancy! These always sold well and only a few very small works remain like this oil on canvas which was one of a series of pieces painted to show alongside the ceramics of Usch Spettigue.

In 2010 I began exploring the medium of watercolour, in a curious response to the combination of struggling through a long long winter of snow and ice which seemed unwilling to let go its grip, followed immediately by the driest April ever, when trees began shedding their leaves to reduce water loss. Somehow this left me wanting to work in a thin, sparing medium and I persevered through a year of frustration (watercolour is so difficult) until I began to achieve pieces I liked. This early watercolour won its way into The Mall Galleries in the Sunday Times 25th Contemporary Watercolour Competition exhibition. I was thrilled, and doubly delighted to find that they’d chosen my piece to use on the cover of their brochure. How I wish this had led to some interest from a London gallery.

ruth-mccabe-painting-watercolour-winter

Continuing since 2011 to develop my practice in the use of watercolour, I am grateful to competitions like the Sunday Times and Royal Watercolour Society’s Contemporary competition, in the hope that these prestigious bodies change the art world’s prejudiced view of ‘watercolour’ as the medium for ‘amateur dabbling’. I love its translucency and flow, and never work in a tight, controlled way.

So please come and visit the studio and the two additional spaces I will be setting up to show this collection. I hope to make it an interesting journey for you.

There will also be unframed pieces, cards and some wire works.
Look for the signs to get you to me! Come straight to the studio.

During the painting demo (see poster below), work can still be seen in the cottage.

Helen Dougall: First World War Centenary Memorial Batik Wallhanging Project with local schoolThe Hall will also be open to the public 11am-3pm Saturday 12th November and Sunday 13th November (and future events).

Helen Dougall has been commissioned with the help of the Big Lottery funding to work with school children in Walsham le Willows in Suffolk to make a batik wallhanging commemorating those who died in the First World War.

Poppies and landscape are featured, each child producing their own batik piece, all of which have been sewn together to form a 4- metre-wide wallhanging to be displayed in the Memorial Village Hall.

Small groups of the class of 9 – 10 year-olds took it in turns to visit Helen’s studio to learn the process of batik after producing observational drawings of poppies.

Ruth McCabe: CELEBRATING THE COMPLETION OF HER NEW STUDIO

CELEBRATING THE COMPLETION OF HER NEW STUDIO, Ruth McCabe invites visitors between 11am and 3pm Tuesday 14th June through to Friday 17th June. And on Saturday 18th June between 10 and 2pm. Pop in to see what I’m working on and enjoy the new space!

ruth-mccabe-new-art-studio-outside-2016

Built over a period of several months the studio gives me much more space and height so I’m hoping it will encourage me to work large! In the winter I will also be delighted to hunker down in the mornings before a little woodburner, coffee in hand.

uth-mccabe-new-art-studio-2-2016

My work is developing along two lines at present: my response in watercolour and oil to the Suffolk agricultural landscape of the Blyth Valley, and slowly emerging paintings inspired by my 2015 artist residency in Snowdonia at Stiwdio Maelor.

Two recent examples to whet your appetite:

ruth-mccabe-mountain-landscape-north-wales

An imperial size painting in watercolour, acrylic ink and pastel, of the mountainous landscape of North Wales, where I found the marks made by man’s industrial efforts: the slate quarries – as beautiful as the inherent colours and forms of the land itself.

ruth-mccabe-blyth-valley-watercolour

This watercolour is painted in the format I have come to love: half imperial but halved length-wise, is one of the views of the Blyth Valley that I love. Watercolour’s translucency is ideal for responding the the layers in the landscape, unfolding towards distant horizons.
