‘Shoreline’: a selection by Matt Gartside

Here is a mini online exhibition of some of Matt’s artworks in our Shoreline Exhibition. Many of them are available as cards as well as prints. They are all printed individually by Matt and are from £40 unframed to £100 mounted and framed. The frames are beautifully made by Matt from recycled oak floorboards and will compliment all homes, from the traditional to the avant garde!

To see the whole collection, come into the gallery Thursday to Sunday 2-6pm. Exhibition finishes mid-June.

Candlelight and Lightning

Both workshops featured dramatic lighting this week: at Photography Night, which was meant to be sunset themed, a fabulous storm raged, resulting a intermittent electricity cuts and a Hammer House of Horror atmosphere. The Life Drawers would have loved that lighting for their Prehistoric session, but made do with candles. They had exciting action poses to compensate though!

Life Drawing is back in a fortnight (29/9) and Photography Night on Tuesday (20/9) at which they will be ‘shooting from the hip’. Cameras at dawn then…
