Six Photographic artists, headlined by the award-winning Jacqui Hurst, explore, celebrate & comment on the environment around them.
Jacqui Hurst heads up this extensive photographic exhibition with her beautifully considered horticultural images and wisely guides us in the teaching of not just looking, but truly seeing. This we then can take with us into the other 5 independent exhibitions within the beautiful period setting of The Farnham Pottery.
Downstairs the focus is on colour work and Jacqui is joined by the very gifted Miriam Winsor who uses painterly portraits to investigate the psychological delicacy of the human condition. While 13-year-old Luke Whatley-Bigg, whose work has won him a scholarship and much accolade, delights us with his magnificent landscape images taken using drones.
Upstairs we turn to the pure monochrome of Black and White and take a journey through techniques from pin-whole landscape photography from the locally celebrated environmental artist Angela Shaw, through to Michael Green’s moving, personal documentary style film photography, taken on his world travels as a camera technician in the film industry for the last thirty years. From dark room to high tech, we finish with the stylish flare of Hugh Rawson’s striking street photography, which is just so amazingly cool, you will want it on your wall.
Do join us for drinks at the Opening on Friday Night 6 – 8pm. All the artists will be present and in the second half of the evening will each give a short presentation on their work. This is an exhibition for everyone and all ages, bring the family, because whether already an enthusiast of photography or not, you may well find yourself leaving as one.
