“Affordable Art” at Staveley Roundhouse
Members of Green Door, the region’s leading artists’ collective, are heading to Staveley Roundhouse for a weekend of Affordable Art from 1 – 3 December. With more than 200 pieces of work from Green Door artists, the exhibition includes paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics, glass, wood, jewellery, textiles and sculpture, all priced at £150 or less. There will also be cards, notebooks and other small items.
“We hope this exhibition provides something for all art lovers,” said Green Door Administrator Janice Benson. “We have stained glass sculptures from Debbie Copley, wire drawings from Brie Wharf and wooden Shaker boxes from Keith Shorrock. Angie Mitchell will be bringing her new printed lampshades, Jane Mallinson has felt accessories and jewellery, and Evelyn Sinclair has her painted ‘tea bags’. We also have prints from Marion Kuit, Barbra Cropper, Sue David, Kath Lockhart and Marie Wright, and David Pooley’s paintings of Cumbria landscapes and wildlife. Mary Taylor and Maddy Wright will be showing their textile and embroidery work, and there will be mixed media work from Cally Lawson and Marjorie Park. It’s the ideal place to do some Christmas shopping for that special gift or to treat yourself to a beautiful piece of work from a local artist.”
The event shows the breadth and depth of talent within Green Door. Other exhibiting artists include: Margaret Auger, Roger Bell, Avery Bradbrook, Joyce Eldred, Jessica Elleray, Eileen Gledhill, Janet Graves, Ray Green, Judith Horsley, Carol Lewis, Liz Lyon, Anne MacKinnon, Alan Marcus, Delcia McNeil, Christopher Moore, Christine Rooney, Steve Trevillion, Sonja Vietoris, Geraldine Walkington and Andy Wild.
