Colour and Light

Gillian Plummer Image Artspace (1).jpg

Gillian Plummer has been a ‘Photographer of the Year’, Garden Media Guild Award winner. The judges described her ‘intricate images as truly original, arresting and never to be forgotten’. Her images are mostly taken within Suffolk’s countryside.

Cyndi Speer’s dream-like paintings are of a highly illustrative nature. Swirls of patterns and contrasting tones are built up from a calming colour palette. Her slightly abstracted, enduring images stem from observations of natural history within Suffolk.

Carol Pask’s exquisite stoneware and porcelain ceramics combine traditional methods, e.g. smoke and pit firing. Her sculptural pieces are often fused with metal, wood or slate and are a response to the beauty and fragility within the natural world.

Nature and Gardens by Christopher Good


Self taught I initially travelled  and  began learning the art of drawing on the streets of  Wuppertal & Dusseldorf in Germany between 2002 /05.

In between this time a couple of small but humble exhibitions at the time helped fund further travels to France and Venice between 2005/07 where i could feed my hunger to work and  learn.

Since late 2008 I happily re rooted myself back in Woodbridge Suffolk , where painting in oils and pastels started to naturally  take over from drawing . My inspirations come from nature/gardens & equally i love returning to the figurative and still life.

Open 10-5pm every day

An Afghan Life - 'The Castle' and other paintings



During 50 years of architectural practice since qualifying as an architect at the Oxford School in the late 60’s Robert [Alex] Alexander has produced paintings. These have not related directly to his profession, though the Afghan series responds to the two years he spent working in Kabul as Architect Advisor to the education ministries [CUME] in the late seventies.

Some of the Castle paintings predate Alex’s reading of Kafka’s book which recounts surveyor K’s problems, but both they and the book can be seen as contemplations on one’s relationships to power and bureaucracy.

People are important in these paintings, in portrait, in relationship with others, or with the natural world.

As will be seen, people and portraits feature strongly in all the paintings.

John Roberts

Another exhibition - another artist. So what’s new…well this one may be local (sixty years in Woodbridge) but the intention is to turn local townscapes and quirky streets from the ordinary into the eye catching. No gimmicks, though. It’s painting in the classical sense but hopefully, not stuffy or old hat. The aim is to celebrate tradition in a way that is still relevant in our time. There are other subjects, of course, such as people, boats and landscapes and the style moves substantially - different ideas and subjects need a different approach, this artist believes. In the end, he concedes, the view of good painting and its relevance is in the eye of the beholder. Words are not enough.

Kate Giles

Kate Giles_2_oil on linen 2017_36x36inches.jpeg

Francis Bacon wondered just how possible it was in a painting to “catch the mystery of appearance within the mystery of making”. Having spent much of my life living and working in East Anglia, in Suffolk until a few years ago and latterly back in Norfolk where I grew up, my work is increasingly concentrated upon the elusive yet distinct spirit of place. Through the process of drawing and memory the mind’s eye, or ”the eye’s mind”, is galvanised, alert to a particular landscape’s volatility, resonance and rhythms. How to make appearance come in? Through painting I aim to energise and make active the space in which the picture is hung.

Sanctuary Art-Photography

thumbnail (1).jpeg

Sanctuary Supported Living (SSL) provides accommodation and support services to thousands of young people and adults across the country.

This autumn our young people have been engaged in an Art-photography course with local photographer (& key worker)   David Perkins.

The course took in ‘portraiture’, ‘photography as storytelling’ and ‘street photography’ and I’m sure you’ll agree there are some talented photographers on display.

The students were encouraged to express themselves artistically and have guided the focus of the course and curated the exhibition themselves.

The exhibition will be on for 2 days: Friday 3rd   and Saturday 4th November. Images on display will be offered for sale and any profits will return to the photographers themselves.

We thank all our supporters and those whose hard work has helped to make this exhibition possible.
