Carol Harvey's studio exhibition is inspired by a small meadow near her home. She has created mixed media work in several forms to capture the colours, textures and feeling of the diverse meadow plants and inhabitants. She makes her own art materials from natural sources, some gathered from the meadow. She makes wax colour bars, watercolour paints and inks which give the work a very subtle, natural appearance.
She is also exhibiting work at FarmEd with the Glyme Lane Group, which includes 7 other artists, inspired by the William Fowler allotments, Millenium Wood and Glyme Farm which is under threat from a possible road development. The work aims to record a moment in time and describes how important these natural places are to the people who cultivate and spend time in them.
Carol Harvey creates mixed media work in many forms inspired by nature. Her love of the rural landscape stems from growing up on a farm in Canada. Her work is semi abstract, capturing the colours, feeling and textures of a particular place. She teaches art in her studio and in the community, always encouraging self expression and nature.
George Ford is an emerging artist whose work is realistic and very detailed. He paints and draws animals, still life's and urban landscapes and has recently been doing a lot of pet portrait commissions.
