Utensils, aquatint etching by Heather Haythornthwaite

New guest artist: Lucy Marks

Lucy’s work as a landscape painter captures the energy of the landscape in a non-representational and contemporary way. Her process is drawn from nature. She works in sketches on location and use these works back in the studio as her primary source, distilling elements from them to explore the energy and aliveness of the landscape.

Lucy holds an MA in Fine Art, and is a Member of the Sussex Watercolour Society, and an Associate Member of the United Society of Artists.  She exhibits regularly in London and the South East.

Last chance to see…
Julie S Taylor

Make sure to catch up on Julie Taylor’s unique artwork before the end of June.
She creates her unique pieces using her own handmade paper and materials from renewable and recycled sources. The papers are coloured using oils, pastels, acrylics and graphite and one can find small amounts of slate, glass, copper foil and gold leaf in the work as well.

We are so excited to be celebrating our second birthday. We would love you to join us for live music at the gallery, a free glass of bubbly and birthday cake. It’s a great weekend to be out and about in Tonbridge, which will be buzzing with the music festival.

Last year we had a wonderful weekend with the most amazing cake! The gallery will be bursting with our artists and we would love to see you!
