Spring Exhibition – 8th March until 19th April 2008

Preview 7th March 6pm to 10pm

Featuring Ophelia Redpath with others

Ophelia Redpath:  Stag Night Ophelia Redpath:  When shall we three meet again Ophelia Redpath:  We will rather sleep than talk

Ophelia Redpath has shown her work extensively in London, Scotland, Paris and Cambridge. A local artist who works from her Cambridgeshire home, she is a highly dedicated and talented individual who very much enjoys her subject, which is clearly evident in her work.
For the last 20 years Ophelia has supported herself with these exhibitions and over this period her style and medium have gradually developed. Beginning her career with designs both abstract and decorative in various media, including gouache, ink, collage, she has slowly moved towards a more figurative approach where people and animals have become her main focus of interest. Now she specialises in genre scenes of people where their eccentricities, tastes, occupations, moods and relationships are recorded with deeply vivid colours in oil on canvas or paper, and oil pastel and gouache on paper. Recently Shakespeare has been her main inspiration, resulting in off-beat interpretations of quotations from his plays.

We will also be showing a selective collection of work by; Dylan Izaak, whose fun cartoon style images are very popular; Leila Solomon, who specialises in modern and richly worked textile panels and cushions; incredible life like, serene figurative prints by Ian Faulkner; landscape oils by Darryl Nantais inspired by the local landscape; Janet Rogers’ uniquely textured works on paper and Leigh Hunt’s beautifully impressionist style landscapes and flowers, all of a very personal and local nature.
