Introducing a new stockist of Charlotte Hupfield Ceramics…
Art Works Gallery in Olney,
on the Northamptonshire & Bedfordshire borders.
I delivered a collection of my work to this beautiful gallery yesterday, and am very excited to have a large display of pieces on show!
I helped to display my work on one of the vast bright windowsills where the sunshine streams in all day. This seemed the perfect setting for my work where the sun will reflect from the areas of glass on some pieces.
Although it is very local to me, I had never actually been to Olney before and was pleasantly surprised by this attractive little market town.
Olney is a tourist destination where visitors can enjoy historic buildings, independent shops, and a wide range of cafes, pubs and restaurants.
World famous for it’s Pancake races, a race takes place on Shrove Tuesday in Olney Market Place annually.
Art Works Gallery is situated right on the High Street directly next to the market, among an array of other independent little shops. I spotted a Joules outlet while passing through yesterday (one of my favourite shops!), so I will be popping in when I’m next in the area.
Art Works showcases work from both established and emerging artists and designers, in a range of mediums. There is something for everyone at this gallery, I could have spent hours admiring the detail in lots of the paintings.
Some of my favourite pieces were by Isabelle Roberts (above) – the muted colours in these subtle landscape paintings pieces are amazing.
Since I’m a huge horse lover, there were many other pieces in the gallery that were right up my street. Check out these fantastic horseshoes made into the shape of a heart by iron worker David Gill.
And if that wasn’t enough, this stunning horse painting below by Laura Slade blew me away. Laura paints all types of animals and also welcomes commissions.
