'Love And Life - A Fine Line' by Andrei Protsouk

'Atmosphere' by Alison Johnson

November Exhibition - Saturday 3rd - Saturday 17th

'Meet The Artist'
Alison will be in the gallery to discuss her work with you on Saturday 3rd at 11am - 1.30pm & 2.30 - 5pm
& Sunday 4th at 12noon - 2.30pm

Alison's atmospheric oil paintings are vibrant and seductive and focal points for any space. By expressing the power of light playing amongst the water drops, this artist shows the abstract, surreal side to the natural world. Her seascapes follow a deep tradition which Johnson modernises and brings to a contemporary forefront. Colours sink below a piercing white surface as oceans and landscapes drift in and out of a sweeping hazy mist. The sky appears deep and brooding, the colours revealing a darkness that battles with the flashes of light. When shapes and figures do reveal themselves they appear lost and fragile against the infinite space of the world around. Such is the atmosphere contained in these works they could easily be viewed as pure abstractions, each detail vital enough to stand alone. Ephemeral, warm powerful and evocative she creates a sense of movement through colour, light and balance.

Johnson's delicate handling of the world she depicts around her has the power to not only move the viewer but to make a lasting impression. With a nod to the impressionist painters Johnson's work has been likened to the great masters of our time such as Turner. Such high acclaim has guaranteed her many exhibitions within the UK, Italy and Paris and is soon to exhibit in the Middle East. Her work continues to reach clients on an international scale.

'Atmosphere' by Alison Johnson

Yourway Support - Members Exhibition

Saturday 24th - Thursday 29th November

Host Galleries are proud to colaborate with 'Yourway', a local support facility for people with learning disabilities.

The Studio has been the centre piece of Yourway Support’s day opportunities for five years, with its new session leader - Julie Beer, it has moved on in ways that no one had envisioned before.

Within the walls of The Studio attendees feel safe and encouraged to look inside themselves for the inspiration which Julie brings out from them with fun positivity and art.

The clients who use Yourway all have a learning disability, which they are turning into ‘different abilities’, using their art and creativity to produce the pieces of work which will be on display during this mini exhibition in the gallery.

Whether it is painting, cement creations or resin art, Julie has been able to inspire the clients to step outside their comfort zones and the barriers of their disabilities, get their hands, and sometimes their clothes, dirty and try techniques they didn’t know existed.

Art isn’t a science, and when things don’t quite go how they were expected, the clients and Julie look for fun ways around the problem. Solutions which, more often than not, add a new aspect to the project, encouraging the customers to overcome their fears of ‘failure’ and showing that there are no mistakes, just happy accidents.

The Studio’s Session Leader, Julie Beer, was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome several years ago but, using art to aid her recovery, she went on to work with Special Educational Needs pupils at a Plymouth school for twelve years, before walking into Yourway’s studio one day with an idea for using their space for children’s after school and holiday sessions.

Seeing Julie’s potential, Yourway offered her a position and within a few weeks she was running sessions for adults with learning disabilities and expanding Yourway’s remit by offering after school art sessions for local children. She also runs therapeutic art/respite sessions for local carers who are looking after children or other family members

This Exhibition has now finished 'Movement On Canvas' by Jean Picton

Show Dates: Saturday 5th - Sunday 20th May

Host Galleries is privileged to hold Jean's first major show in the South West.

THE STORY OF AN ACTRESS, PERFORMER
AND CREATIVE ARTIST

Jean joined the circus at the age of 14 and so began her theatrical career. From this modest beginning, by the 1950s Jean had established herself as an entertainer, touring virtually all of the provincial variety theatres in the UK including the London variety circuit -

"I feel my work is more about painting than flowers. the subject matter is just a means to explore the skill of tonal values, composition and the drawn line. I have moved through various phases in my development from minimalist poppy images to more complex structured paintings, exploring a deeper resonance of colour.

My latest works are the result of this thinking. I have taken the abstract form to a larger scale, intensified the colours by adding a resin finish, thus improving the 'movement' within the work. Where I am now is proving the most exciting of all my careers." J Picton
