Sense of Space

Sense of Space

By Reading Guild of Artists

Preview: Thu 7 April 6–8pm
Meet the artists: Sat 30 April 11am–1pm

South Hill Park invites members of Reading Guild of Artists to present new work in response to the concept ‘a sense of space’. Paintings, prints, textiles, ceramics, sculptures and installations are brought together by this common theme.

Artists have always drawn inspiration from the world about them – the spaces in which they find themselves or from where they work, live and travel. They are also used to working in isolation – but the recent pandemic may have presented more time in which to appreciate and respond to their surroundings in a new way.

Sense of Space encourages the viewer to look, see and connect – in a deeper way – with their own memories, experiences and feelings, inspired by the world about them.

Meet the artists: Tue 1, Sat 5, Sat 12 & Tue 15 March 10am–3pm
In conversation: Thu 3 March 5–6pm South Hill Park curator Loucia Manopoulou with Professor Lesley Millar

Tansa, the Japanese word for exploration, is the link that binds this Anglo-Japanese exhibition.

South Hill Park will be hosting an exhibition of large works – which draw from the techniques, methods and approaches learnt in Japan – to create a celebration of Tansa: Japanese threads of influence.

Tansa miniatures will be on show at Crafts Study Centre, Farnham from Tue 4 Jan – Sat 26 March.

Colours of the Sea

Colours of the Sea

Karen Marks

Preview: Wed 19 Jan 6pm-8pm – find out more here.

Artist talk: Sat 29 Jan 1.30pm-3.30pm – find out more here.

Ceramic artist, Karen Marks, takes her inspiration from the coastline, where the sea meets the shore. In this exhibition, she explores the multitude of colours that can be observed at different times on different coasts.

Creating her own porcelain paperclay using various oxides and stains, Karen aims to create work that captures the colours and moods of the ever-changing sea, from dramatic to peaceful and calm.

Sound designer, Oliver Jewitt-Harris, has worked with Karen to create the enveloping ambient sounds of the sea – emotionally connecting, and enhancing the visual experience.
