10 July – 28 August, 10.30am to 5.00pm, Farfield Mill
Green Door have returned to Farfield Mill in Sedbergh for a group exhibition which showcases a wide variety of two and three dimensional work on the theme of ‘Roots’. The exhibition will see paintings, drawings, prints, textiles, jewellery, ceramics, wood and glass on display from the group’s members and provides a great opportunity for visitors to see the breadth of members’ work in a stunning setting. Scroll down to see some photos from the exhibition.
Marie Wright will be exhibiting new collaged work on canvas inspired by trees and field boundaries, incorporating the past as she delves beneath the surface of the land and the archaeological finds and imprints left behind. She uses a variety of screenprinting and monoprinting techniques to build layers of imagery that explore both the fragility and hidden aspects of the landscape.
After moving around a lot as a child Eileen Gledhill settled near Kendal as a young adult. This is where she ‘put down roots’ and began to fully appreciate beautiful scenery. She developed a desire to paint, to capture a little of the fleeting effects of weather on our corner of this wonderful world and the work she is exhibiting reflects this.
“As a girl I used often to cycle to this old windmill a couple of miles from home,” said Averyl Bradbrook. “One day I did a watercolour sketch which I still have, many decades later. That sketch has been my inspiration for my painting in oils, which I am calling ‘A Childhood Haunt’. Somewhere I have a photo of me on my bike adjacent to the windmill which I hope to unearth.”
