CERAMICS & PAINTINGS

22 Oct 2016 – 20 Nov 2016, 10:00 – 16:30

CERAMICS & PAINTINGS

Original and beautiful, this is your opportunity to invest in a stunning piece of art.

The theme of this exhibition is Cooking, Eating and Serving and Gordon has a brand new blue glaze which he's been developing and he's now using on some of his tableware.

Gordon Whittle has been designing pots for over 52 years. He studied Art at Bolton Art College and upon completing his course was employed as a technician in the Ceramics Dept. During his time in the department he was inspired and threw his first pot in 1962. Later he successfully applied for a place on the prestigious Ceramics Course at the Corsham Court where he completed his training. The rest is history. Today he has an extensive loyal following and is one of Wiltshire's most renowned potters. Bath Spa University is collecting his work for it's ceramics collection.

We are fortunate to have Gordon exhibiting with us for a fourth year running. His wife Dorothy's optimistic painting are a perfect compliment to his stoneware.

Gordon and Dorothy will be in the gallery to greet you on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the run of the exhibition.

Preview: Please join Gordon and Dorothy for refreshments in the gallery on Saturday 22 October. 11am- 4pm.

Painting for Pleasure. Priscilla Dorwood

25 Nov 2016 – 18 Dec 2016, 10:00 – 16:30

Painting for Pleasure. Priscilla Dorwood

Priscilla and her twin sister both went to the Glasgow School of Art and were taught by many well known artists. Priscilla worked in Advertising after leaving college. Her sister went on to have a successful career in Fashion Design in Paris. Priscilla married Ivor Dorwood who worked in the offices of Keppie Henderson where Rennie Macintosh once worked.

She gave up painting altogether for motherhood and didn't sell her first painting until she was in her late 40's when she joined the Glasgow Society of Women Artists of which she spent 3 years as it's President. She was also one of the first female artists of the Glasgow Art Club which had been an all male Club. Her social circle included artists such as John Cunningham, John Matheson, Bill Crosbie, Norman Edgar, Goudie and many more.

40 years after selling her first painting she now lives in Wiltshire and we're thrilled to be showing her work at the Old Mill Gallery. Her exhibition includes some of her earlier work and recent works which are for sale. Today she works mainly in watercolour but also pastel & oils and paints what she sees, to quote Priscilla 'Not at all modern'.
