Artists in Goring
Sarah Pye from Artistry Gallery will be joined by artists for the Artists at Goring exhibition this Bank Holiday Weekend (27-29 May) at Goring Village Hall
The Artists at Goring exhibition is now in its seventh year and although some of the artists will be familiar to visitors, rest assured they always bring fresh new work to this lovely exhibition.
Over the last seven years, all the artists have been asked to donate a percentage of any sales made over the weekend to local goring organisations.
Sarah said, “We have managed to support the Village Hall restoration fund (on a few occasions), Goring Village Primary School children’s art department (also on a few occasions), Goring in Bloom and last year along with a small gift to the Primary School, we have managed to give £500 to the local Goring hub to support the elderly in need, in the goring area. I believe over the last few years, the artists have donated in the region of £5000 to the Goring community.”
Some of the artists change each year and last year they had a wonderful new addition to the group by the name of Leda Clocks. These handmade contemporary, exquisite time features, are really quite something to behold. Darren Simmons designs and laser carves each feature and cog out of wood and finely engineers the completed piece to keep perfect time, using only traditional pendulums – no batteries required!
This year, they are also joined by a new artist called Nick Quirke, whose bold, colourful contemporary pieces will be depicting the local area in a way quite possibly not seen before. His outrageously, bold, colour, palette in his skies and water, with the mere hint of a local land mark, make his work truly impressionistic and a real head turner.
Sarah will also be exhibiting new pieces along with Kate Findlay, Liz Chaderton and Clare Buchta. So if you’re looking for a fun arty jaunt out over the bank holiday weekend, do pop in and see them.
Opening hours 27 May 10-6pm , 28 May 10-8 pm and 29 May 10-5 pm
