Ingleby Gallery sits gently in the Trent Valley, with some of the hamlet’s cottages dating back to the 16th century. It was originally a Shire horse stable on the Sir Francis Burdett Foremark Estate. It is surrounded by open pasture land extending to the river, with ponds and ducks, a very rural setting with ample parking for visitors.
The Gallery is open for exhibitions of two week’s for artist’s pieces throughout the year, with an ever-changing collection of; paintings by renowned artists including Steven McLoughlin, Steven Tandy, Deb Walker & Lawrie Williamson; sculpture by Tricia Harrison & Sue Riley; ceramics by Karen Fawcett & Julie Wilson, jewellery & glassware all being displayed in a welcoming and vibrant surroundings.
Gill retired from teaching in 1998 and looked to pursue her interest in art and paintings, whilst continuing her love of working and communicating with others. An opportunity arose to convert an old Shire horse stable, next to her home, into a Gallery, and Gill welcomed the opportunity happily. The Gallery has hosted many exhibitions every year since then, usually exhibiting seven to eight artists or sculptors.
She enjoys visiting artists all over the country selecting ones she would like to exhibit but also encourages artistic talent to approach her. Gill believes that she has the best of worlds; living in the countryside, meeting interesting people, continuing her love of art and generally enjoying a lovely retirement.
Vivienne returns to Ingleby Gallery for her third solo show, ‘Capture the Moment’, with a new body of work inspired by her love of flowers and growing collection of jugs and textiles. Whilst watercolour remains a passion, Vivienne is including some recent pieces in mixed media and acrylics of landscape and still life which she will be exhibiting for the first time alongside her more familiar floral watercolours. Her special use of colour remains strong across these different genres as does the mystery in the composition, inviting closer inspection. See ‘Capture the Moment’ at the gallery from the 8th to the 22nd of October.
We are also extremely privileged to have Vivienne doing a demonstration of her work for us on the 14th October from 10am till 12 noon. Coffee and cake will be served and we would be thrilled if you could join us!
