Paintings, mixed media and installation by Kamini Gupta
Opening View: Saturday 11 November, 10 am - 5 pm
"My work is a journey through ever changing inner and outer landscapes. I work intuitively, exploring the creative impulse as it arises in the moment through spontaneous expression. Creating this way makes me feel alive. Standing on the edge of not knowing is an ongoing journey to stay open, spontaneous and willing to be surprised. This approach honours the innate wisdom of the body and the transformative power of deep listening that allows the intuitive guidance of the Soul to find expression.”
21 November – 3 December
Landscape and marine paintings in watercolour and oils by Nick Bremer, and contemporary collages, prints, portraits and concept subjects by Patrick Bremer
Opening View: Tuesday 21 November, 6 pm
Drinks with the artists: Sunday 26 November, 12 noon
“It would seem that in my work I have always emphasised the importance of drawing and draughtsmanship.”
Nick Bremer reflects that his paintings tend to speak for themselves, being largely representational interpretations of landscape and marine themes. He shows here with his youngest son, Patrick, who is forging a successful, internationally recognised career in Fine Art in Berlin.
Patrick lives in Berlin, where he stocks up on old tattered books and magazines each weekend from the local market to use as his palette. He aims to approach his collages as paintings, using blocks of paper as loaded brush marks and inspired by the impasto mark-making of Freud and Bacon. Each piece begins with a rough plan before taking its own direction, and each is a reaction to the last. For Patrick, collage as a medium encourages the playful use of chance elements, sucking in text, stories and imagery from an array of different sources to create a narrative on the canvas.

5 – 17 December
10 am - 5 pm (11 am - 3 pm Sundays)
a richly varied exhibition with a Christmas theme. Artists and makers from the South Hams Arts Forum present a wide range of interesting and affordable art and objects of beauty.
Meet the Artists: Saturday 9 December, 10 am - 5 pm
A richly varied exhibition with a Christmas theme. There’s silver jewellery by Christine East and Charlotte Dalrymple-Hay, textile jewellery by Sally Tapsell-Hall, who also shows mixed media paintings and collage, and miniature paintings made wearable by Anna Ventura alongside her paintings and drawings. Recycling is a theme: in her mosaics Jane Mahood uses old recycled tiles and broken ceramics, some of which come from the mud of the Kingsbridge Estuary, and Helen Curtis’ mixed media pictures incorporate stones, shells and flotsam from walks on the South Hams beaches.
Teresa Barlow shows colourful screenprints exploring fairground imagery, and delightful pictures in ceramics portraying some of the characters one might meet there.
Sandra Litchfield presents original gifts handcrafted in lead-free pewter: games, jewellery and bowls, depicting the flora and fauna of the local area.
Amanda Brooks’ work is influenced by old Japanese paintings, and she likes the idea of bringing a bit of the natural world inside to enjoy. Painting onto fragile gold leaf with acrylic or oil paint reflects light and changes throughout the day. She finds it perfect for capturing a shadow rolling across a field or the sun shining on the sea.
Caroline Barker is a printmaker, calligrapher and collector of quotations, and she combines all three in delightfully quirky handmade books.
