Hello this is the newsletter
Skylark Galleries 1
8 October to 4 November 2018
Corrine Edwards is a mixed-media artist who uses in ceramics, mono-print, silver jewellery and more.
Corrine’s work incorporates Adinkra symbols from Ghana, abstract icons and maritime finds among other influences
Her process is multi layered; the paper is dyed, incised, rubbed with chalk and pastel. Sometimes sewn imagery with hair is added as in the ‘kilt’ piece.
In the mono prints Corrine uses silver ink on black tissue which picks up every detail of the printing plates. She often incorporates her own jewellery pieces and other found objects in her prints eg her ceramic figures, giving a ghostly floating image.

“Circles & Squares”
2 to 21 October 2018
Our Director / Artist Gill Hickman is showing her textured artworks at Skylark Galleries 2 until 21 October.
Gill draws inspiration from textures and patterns in the environment and from her daily meditation practice.
The act of creating the work can be seen as a meditation in itself. Each stage of the process requires presence and focus; eg the folding and hand-tearing of the paper using a book-binder’s bone knife, the preparation of the special acid-free glue, or the delicate application of the 24carat gold leaf.
The simple geometric shapes (Circles and Squares) that Gill uses express a sense of wellbeing. Collectors have often described her works as “calming” and “uplifting”
Meet Gill at the special Late Night View 6pm till 8pm on Thursday 4th October in our gallery overlooking the Thames!

As well as the Late Night Viewing listed above, Gill will also be at the gallery on Friday 5th October from 11-6pm and on Sunday 7th October from 11am to 6pm
