Jack Stephenson 19th September

10am-5pm every day

Painters make pictures. They may be pictures from the imagination or from the world around them but “nothing comes from nothing” and, consequently, no thing can be painted that has not been seen or has not been internalised as part of a series of previous perceptions.

My figure paintings and portraits offer me the opportunity to explore the ways in which one can conjure the illusion of three dimensions on a two dimensional surface. The “magic” of this kind of painting relies on the painter’s ability to manipulate paint. I often leave areas of the canvas unpainted as this can give greater play to the viewer’s involvement in the perceptual process.This approach leaves much of the canvas available for the kind of regulating geometry that brings extraneous elements into, what one hopes might be, a coherent form.

Of course, one of the jobs of the professional painter is to make something that people want to look at and with which they may like to live. It is, therefore to be hoped that the successful painter, employing all his or her skills and cunning, in the pursuit of something that we might call beauty, will produce a work that prompts a positive reaction from the viewer.

John Roberts


John Robert's

Summer Exhibition

Ist - 7th August 2019 Open every day from between 10am-6pm.

John Roberts is a well-known local artist who has worked in and around Woodbridge for 60 years but never gets over the excitement he originally felt arriving here all those years ago…”the quirky architecture is a wonderland of pictures everywhere you look”, he will tell you. And that’s before he goes into ecstasies about the river.So the old town and waterfront figure prominently in his body of work but he does occasionally wander further afield and tackles new subjects. Indeed, wandering as the fancy takes him is hisview of life in general and is reflected in the range of different styles that his idea of freedom can bring.

An exhibition of painting, sculpture and photography by;

John Barker - Gus Farnes - Gill Plummer

John and Gus work from Butley Mills Studios located at the foot of Butley Creek. 

Set in an ‘old time’ landscape, unified by the rhythm of the tide the creek breathes twice a day, inhaling water surges along its channel, bringing with it new life, it exhales. Retreating water leaves behind the old life, silt.

We live in a time dominated by instant gratification, likes, fast-paced fashion and influencers, the silt of tomorrow. This new life seems to run faster, broader, but it appears to run less deep. In its search for new channels it fills the old channel with debris, bursting its banks, flooding lowlands, isolating highlands, losing its central direction and purpose. 

It is time to re-cut the old channel and dig deeper than ever before, moving the silt downstream.

Jim Nind


Felixstowe-based artist Jim Nind presents a new body of mixed media paintings which playfully interweave painting, photography, and digital design.

Pushing at the boundaries to what David Hockney refers to as “the tyranny of the rectangle” Jim’s recent work seeks to escape his own use of multiple images patch-worked within tight and containing grid compositions; breaking out in interesting ways. Paralleling this compositional challenge, and drawing upon the power and fragility of the natural world, Jim’s work develops a metaphor around the relationship between organic life and made structures.

Jim will be in-situ throughout the exhibition. More information on Jim and his work is available on his website;

Carol Pask, Cyndi Speers & Gillian Plummer


Carol Pask

Carol is a ceramic artist working in stoneware and porcelain, combining traditional methods to create sculptural pieces, which are often fused with metal, wood or slate. Shapes and images are distilled into non-representational interpretations with just the essence remaining in the finished sculptural work.

Gillian Plummer

Gillian’s images are ‘intricate, truly original, arresting, and never to be forgotten’. She is a photographer who looks for art in the natural world. Nature for her is the spirit of life and she is truly inspired by it.

Cyndi Speer

Cyndi is greatly inspired by the beauty of landscapes, and the nature that is within. Her technique of wide brushstrokes that are overlain with finer, delicate details, together with the inclusion of patterns have often been described as being ‘dreamlike’ and ‘surreal’.

SBP Collection

Screen Shot 2019-01-30 at 17.25.08.png

This will be a unique showing of paintings, prints and 3D works that I have carefully selected and cherished, over my time spent as a practising artist. Initially it was not my intention to amass a collection, but through the experience of exhibiting and mixing with other accomplished artists I found myself continually making discoveries and wanting to take them home; thereby surrounding myself with beautiful inspirational artworks. Showing my appreciation towards other artists has also meant a lot. In recent years I have focused on having an exhibition of my collection. Having lived in Suffolk for 22 years, the works mainly feature East Anglian artists, but there are also works from further afield. The show will include recent acquisitions as well as older works, with a wide range of price points.

Painting with a camera Geoffrey Thomas


Painting with a camera Geoffrey Thomas

Open 10 - 5 pm every day

At age 63 I started taking night time images while living in London in May 2016.

Now based in Suffolk, I use the same technique, letting the camera paint the images with the help of my hands. After visiting several locations both in England and ThailandI I have a much better understanding of how the camera can create very different , and at times mesmerising “Paintings” successfully.

The qualities of images recorded reminds me of actual works of art, so I have called my technique "Painting with a Camera".

I look forward to visitors my at exhibition in Woodbridge where I will be available in person, and also my website at with your constructive comments."

TASC hope to raise awareness of what we have and what we will lose to Sizewell C (SZC) through this exposition of artwork depicting our precious Heritage coastline and the surrounding marshes, heaths and woodlands. Local artists, including Maggi Hambling, have loaned us examples of their work and TASC is very grateful for their generosity and solidarity with our cause: to stop SZC and save our crumbling coast and future generations from the completely unnecessary burden of housing lethal radioactive waste here for hundreds of years to come.

On Saturday 16th from 2-4pm, TASC Chairman Pete Wilkinson, co-founder of Greenpeace UK, will be giving a series of short talks on the implications of SZC and will be happy to answer questions on EDF’s 3rd consultation. 

Please come along to express your concerns or just to take a look at the Exhibition.
