FORTHCOMING EXHIBITIONS AT GALLERY 5
Jane Vaux Exhibition @ Gallery 5
Artist Jane Vaux. 23 June – 3 July
Jane Vaux was born in Derbyshire and was always involved with painting and creative work alongside other mainstream careers. She has been a professional artist for the last 10 years and has settled in Oxfordshire now.
Her love of the sea and the coastline is reflected in much of her work. She approaches her work from the baseline of creating the ‘atmosphere, life and movement’ of the image she wants to produce, working with many different mediums, but primarily acrylics.
She uses these in varying degrees of thickness and texture, often creating effects that are built up over many sessions. She works in various styles but is always looking to incorporate new ideas and styles.
She is inspired by many subjects but her main focus is seascapes, landscapes, and more recently cityscapes. A wealth of material in all of these subjects is of course available in and around her immediate area.
Jane has successfully exhibited and sold in many venues and galleries around the South West. She has sold internationally and completed numerous commissions, culminating in a successful gallery of her own in Plymouth.
Mic Chambers Exhibition @ Gallery 5
Artist Mic Chambers. 8 – 18 April
Gallery 5 is delighted to host our first major exhibition in our new studio space.
Mic is a self taught artist based in Devon. A charismatic, unfettered and prodigious talent whose art captivates and sings from the canvas.
He was influenced and inspired by Ken Paine, the renowned pastel artist and is immensely proud to have worked along side him in the 1990’s. Ken’s work is recognised worldwide and he was awarded the coveted title of Master Pastelliste by the Societe des Pastellistses Internationale et des France, an accolade rarely awarded to an Englishmen.
Working with prolific experiments, different theories, techniques and ideas, Mic skilfully uses the paint medium as expressive element and his freedom of expression is gained from a core belief and confidence in his chosen subject matter.
He remains in afraid to touch the boundaries of the human mind frequently creating a pandemonium of the senses and a crystallisation of moments in time.
There will be a mix of exciting originals and sculpture.
