New Friends, Old Friends

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the Private Show on Thursday. Cassie at’ Off the Wall’ hung the work beautifully, putting both artists’ work to the best advantage. It must have been a daunting prospect as there’s a huge contrast in styles. If Cassie is able to let me have photographs I will post them here. [...]

“All is not as it seems”

The Fabulous Spectre Now, I think that “All is not as it seems” is the title. It’s the title on the printed Private Show invitation cards that the gallery sent us, but on their website they’ve put “it’s not all as it seems”. It’s a joint show with Stephen’s work and , in complete contrast, the [...]

Meet Yasuka

‘The Messenger’, which depicts Yasuka and her paper bird, is one of three drawings by Stephen Lovatt on show at the Society of Graphic Fine Art’s drawing exhibition in Ilminster running from 16 to 28 April. As well as seeing the full-size drawing of Yasuka there will be an opportunity to meet exhibiting artists on Sunday 15 April 3 [...]

Sculpture at the Botanic Garden

I’m one of the invited artists exhibiting at the Bristol University Botanic Garden this weekend. I’m showing table-top pieces on the theme of  ’Infestations’ in the Linnaeus Study Room where teas will be served while the show is on. I’ll try to get along as much as possible this weekend and I will certainly be [...]

All Hung Up

The car was loaded fit to bursting but we got everything in and made it to Ilminster in very good time. It’s only an hour from Bristol even when driving with EXTREME care to avoid rattling the artworks. Helping us to get everything right were Sue and John Bishop and Ann Palmer of the Ilminster Arts [...]

Fabrication of Reality

We are so glad that we made the effort in 2010 – 2011 to ensure that we have an efficient studio space up and running. It is paying dividends now as although it is pretty chaotic on the home front, our art production and exhibition planning has been able to continue relatively unhindered. Unfortunately it [...]

Recent Events

Family commitments have meant that it has been difficult for me to keep this blog up to date. Which is why I did not put up posts for two events at the end of last year. Stephen had new paintings in the Christmas Show at the Off the Wall Gallery in Cardiff and both Susan [...]

Summer Exhibition and August Extension

Stephen has two paintings on show in the Summer Exhibition at the Off the Wall Gallery in Cardiff. The Private view is on Friday 5 August 6.00 – 8.00pm, we hope to be there (fingers crossed). The exhibition closes on 13 September. To book for the Private View email art@galleryoffthewall.com His solo show at ‘The Gallery’ [...]

The Gallery, Preview Evening

I understand from Stephen that the preview event yesterday evening at The Gallery in Chard went very well. He says that Tracey and Simon had done a lovely job with the hanging and everything looked really good. The evening was quite busy and Stephen enjoyed talking with everyone who came. People seemed genuinely intrigued by [...]

Sunday Closure, an apology

If you tried in vain to visit Stephen’s show at the Glass Room on a Sunday last month we can only apologise, but the fault was not ours. Apparently the management of the Colston Hall decided to close the building on Sundays this summer and it came into effect in July. Unfortunately they failed to [...]
