Billy Adams poster 4webCeramist Billy Adams’ work is held in numerous private collections around the world. He is a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association. His work deals with exploring and experimenting with aspects of landscape: “The rock-like surfaces of my ceramic forms are alive with the vivid colours and nature and textured to appear weathered and eroded. My main inspiration is the countryside and the standing stones of my native Ireland and West Wales. I would like to think that my work forms a material link to /with our elusive mystical ancestry.” Billy Adams will give a talk and demonstration during the exhibition period.

JJ_poster1A.jpg An exhibition of Jane Joseph’s suites of etchings for Primo Levi’s ‘If This is a Man’ and ‘The Truce’ shown alongside her own personal collection of works by artists including Paul Cezanne, Prunella Clough, Edgar Degas, Robert Medley and Anthony Stevens. She writes “My interest is in what artists make and in what they look at. I believe it is through sharing the latter that one is brought closest to the work that they make. Having the work around me of artists that I admire is an encouragement to my own endeavours.”
