Woods in Winter coming soon to the Sarah Wiseman Gallery in Oxford (25/Nov-31/Dec)

Monday, November 20th, 2017

More spectacular than ever before, Sarah Wiseman Gallery’s Christmas exhibition this year is themed around snowy woods and star-lit winter nights. ‘We’ve asked artists to respond to a theme this year: ‘Woods in Winter’ – which has given the work an exciting new edge,’ says gallery director Sarah Wiseman. ‘Artists like Daniel Ablitt, who specialises in atmospheric landscape, will be making new works that are inspired by Nordic landscape – the woods, mountains and snow that has inspired countless fairy tales and myth.’

The exhibition aims to be a more immersive experience for visitors and those seeking beautiful gifts for friends and family. ‘Woods in Winter’ is so evocative, and is open to many interpretations from artists and makers alike’, says Sarah. ‘You can imagine scenes of fireside tales, intriguing pathways, that hush of snow blanketed everywhere- we’re very excited to see what artists come up with!’

New to the gallery will be Flora McLachlan, whose twilit images are an exploration of ancient and enchanted landscapes. She is best known for her etchings which are carefully constructed and layered with various techniques to achieve a time-worn look and softly lit atmosphere. One of McLachlan’s painting is shown here courtesy of the artist and Sarah Wiseman Gallery.

Bloom: Charlotte Hardy and Sally Stafford at the Sarah Wiseman Gallery (4 – 25 Feb)

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Sarah Wiseman Gallery is pleased to announce ‘Bloom’ with Charlotte Hardy and Sally Stafford, a joyous, beautiful exhibition exploring colour and pattern interpreting floral forms.

Painter and illustrator Charlotte Hardy finds inspiration in decoration and pattern found in the everyday. Exploring arrangements of pleasing design such as flowers in vases, a still life of a dining table or a shop window display, Charlotte’s work is both loosely expressive and closely observed. Her brushwork is often simple and straightforward but also contain studies of wallpaper design, textile pattern or decoration of ceramics. Take a look at available works here.

Sally Stafford is well known for her expressive landscape painting, using mixed media. Colours and textures develop through application of multiple layers of paint, ink, wax and pigment. There is an element of impressionism in her painting in the way she approaches her work, the intuitive feel of her brushwork, however the mix of different media keeps it resolutely contemporary. View works included in the exhibition here and shown below is Matriarch (courtesy of the artist and Sarah Wiseman Gallery).
