With, that in mind take a look around this exhibition that features ten contemporary artists of local talent as well as a few artists from further a field meant that overall there was a lot of diversity and good quality of work on offer. This is the second exhibition I've been to now since the gallery first opened about a year ago and both times I've been surprised at how much art it actually manages to pack in without being overcrowded. So, this time we had (what was a particular favourite of mine), Sam Hall who creates ceramics with interesting surfaces/painting on them, that without being able to show you a picture can only really be best described as being like a Tapies, graffiti on the form of a ceramic vessel. They're worth seeing. The exhibition also brings together; Cedric Christie's witty dictionary pieces, Chinks Grylls' light/glass sculptures, Faye Dennis' coiled ceramic pot and sculpture, Gordon Faulds' mixed media paintings/drawings, as well as painting from Elizabeth Earley and Nick Gray and more...(I'm not going to give it all away!)
A gem of a show, with lots of different components that come together in a fizzing concoction of surfaces, textures, colours and ideas. Chymistry has never been so appealing!
