A reminder about the launch of my new collection 'XVI' - 16 from '16 by JODY LITTLE


A reminder about the launch of my new collection 'XVI' - 16 from '16

















The sixteen original portraits are a celebration of the icons and legends that we lost in 2016, including Carrie Fisher, David Bowie, Prince and Muhammad Ali.

I have used my traditional methods of collage, acrylic and pastel, but with this collection I have used gold spray paint and reds to  emphasis the images, reflecting their significance in popular culture.


Please join me at my studio/home to see the new collection
SATURDAY 28th OCTOBER 2-6pm

MAGICAL REALISM - H E R M I O N E G I B B S

Palm Tree Gallery
has the pleasure in inviting you to the

Champagne Reception of MAGICAL REALISM - Thursday, 9th November, 6pm - 9pm

Scottish artist, Hermione Gibbs was raised in the bonnie Highlands. Born in 1988, she started painting as a child where she was captivated by her wild surroundings. A family holiday to the Outer Hebrides each summer was where it all began: “I remember having picnics on the white shell sand beaches and being mesmerized by the crashing turquoise waves beneath the angry clouds scudding along the mountainous skyline” Hermione would go on to capture the quick changing landscapes and feathery wildlife in a dreamlike way; a form of Magical Realism.

Hermione expanded her knowledge of drawing and painting during a foundation course at Edinburgh, and she continued to identify herself as an artist in Florence over a six year period. Travelling around the world to explore new countries and express their exuberant surroundings is what really inspired her. The colours of Cuba, India, Greece, Italy and in particular Scotland, are all reflected in her work.

Grunwick 40: The mural is finally ready!





The mural is finally ready!


Grunwick 40 is delighted to announce that the mural commemorating the Grunwick strike will be unveiled on Saturday 30th September at noon.

The mural has been two years in the planning and is a few months late owing to circumstances beyond our control but it is finally happening!

Designed by artist Anna Ferrie and more than 60 participants at community workshops, the artwork has been a collaborative effort reflecting both memories of the strike for those who were present and the hope it represents for younger generations. Join us on Saturday 30th September from noononwards at the former factory site by Dollis Hill station (MAP HERE) as we reveal a colourful memorial to mark this seminal moment in British history!

Tell us you're coming on the Facebook event and don't forget to share and retweet.

This will be the final event in the Grunwick 40 commemoration project, and we'd like to thank all the supporters and donors who helped make the project possible. For those of you who donated money – as the design is finalised we are now able to produce the crowdfunder rewards and these will be sent out during October as soon as possible after the unveiling. Thank you for bearing with us so patiently.

In solidarity

The Grunwick 40 team

FREE by Free Painters and Sculptors A group exhibition exploring ideas of freedom in modern times



FREE by Free Painters and Sculptors
A group exhibition exploring ideas of freedom in modern times

Clerkenwell Gallery, 20 Clerkenwell Green, London, EC1R 0DP

Tuesday 26th – Saturday 30th September 2017
Opening Hours: 12-7pm (except Thursday 12-5pm)

Private View: Thursday 28th September6-9pm
(please rsvp)

 
Capturing the essence of freedom and diversity, a new and exciting exhibition from Free Painters and Sculptors (FPS) opens to the public on Tuesday 26th September.

This exhibition explores the principles, reflected in the core beliefs of FPS, of free speech and artistic expression and features work from members of the group using a wide variety of materials and styles.
FPS, an artist-led organisation, was first established in 1952. Since its inception, the idea of freedom has been at the heart of its beliefs. In the aftermath of World War II, it was vital for the group to be able to protect the principles of artistic freedom, free speech and expression, and to challenge established notions and values.

Clearly, since that time, there have been significant, and positive changes in attitudes concerning class, gender, sexuality, race and religion. Despite this progress, there is still a great need to defend these values.

FPS is proud to be an artistic collective that champions and encompasses the essence of diversity. Many of the exhibiting artists will be present at the show at which you will be able to discuss and see their artistic representations of freedom and diversity.

FPS was originally associated with the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts) and came to prominence by playing a significant part in the establishment of abstract art in the 1950's and 60's. Founding members featured many high profile and influential artists, including Roy Rasmussen, Lyall Watson and Maurice Jadot, who all feature in the permanent Tate Collection.

In 2017 FPS celebrates its 65th anniversary.

Champagne Reception: Pink Bliss Sofia Cacciapaglia

View this email in your browser

THIS FRIDAY, CHAMPAGNE RECEPTION: 21st April from 6 - 9pm

The Palm Tree Gallery is pleased to present PINK BLISS, a solo exhibition by Italian artist Sofia Cacciapaglia. Influenced by 20th Century painters Sofia has created a new body of work for the exhibition that combines the Apollonian and Dionysian: the passionate culture of Sicily, ancient Greece and Mediterranean civilisations. For this show the artist has used strong tones of reds and pinks reinforcing her profound poetic sensibility.

Sofia’s oil paintings depict female forms and flowers in a ‘figurative-symbolic’ style. Her use of diptychs and triptychs and the negative space around her confident brush strokes create an elegant and ethereal feeling. ‘The forms are imposing yet light, they inhabit an unreal, timeless space’. The classic figures suspended in the space compliment each other and softly embrace the beholder, creating a strong and dynamic portrayal of female contours; even her flowers have a flesh like appearance. Sofia adheres to a pure, prehistoric and primitive approach capturing a real sense of freedom.

Born in Ponte dell'Olioin 1983, Sofia started to paint as a child. After graduating at Accademiadi Belle Artidi Brera, she moved to New York where she had her first solo exhibition at IndustriaSuperStudio. In 2014 she was the youngest artist to show in the Italian Pavilion at 54th Venice Biennale. In the last few years she has showed her work at MuseodellaPermanente and Palazzo Stellinein Milan and at Fondazione PastificioCerrerein Rome, to name a few. Her work is in many private collections including Banca Sistema where Sofia had a retrospective in 2013.
