  • Emma Dunbar: Colour in the Snow

    • Saturday, 12 January 2019 - Saturday, 23 February 2019 at 10:00 - 17:00
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free

    We are delighted to welcome back Emma Dunbar's vibrant and dynamic paintings for a much anticipated solo show.

    Emma_Dunbar__Snowdrops_from_a_snowy_woodWhile Emma's show will feature all seasons, for the first time, Emma has prepared a substantial new body of work, exploring colour in the show, making this show a special treat to our collectors and art lovers. The exhibition also explores the joyful richness of the everyday.

    Emma gathers ingredients from her home, travels, the landscape, combining pattern and familiarity to create colourful and recognisable paintings. Her attraction to colour and the decorative qualities in everyday objects provide the foundation for her art while her training as a printmaker is evident both in the use of blocks of flat colour and in the way she scratches through surfaces to reveal pre-laid colours underneath.

    At the same time in the gallery, we feature the decorative ceramics by Ken Eardley. Ken's colour and patterns focus on brightening up any kitchen and interior, bringing vibrancy into the everyday. They enter into a dialogue with Emma's work.

    Gallery opening times: Tuesday to Saturday, 10am-5pm | Closed on Mondays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.

    We are delighted to welcome back The Bully Wee Band on their 15th Anniversary Reunion Tour. They have appeared at Grayshott Folk Club three times before and each time they have thrilled our audiences and made new friends.

    Since their reformation in 2004, the Bully Wee Band have had no trouble proving that they are still a force to be reckoned with, as one of Britain’s foremost exponents of acoustic folk/rock music. Originally formed in the early '70's by brothers Jim and John Yardley, the Bully Wee Band successfully toured Britain, Europe and America through several line-ups until the last one of Ian Cutler, Fergus Feely, Colin Reece and Maartin Allcock finally called it a day in 1983.

    Twenty years later, a chance meeting between Messrs Cutler, Feely and Reece resulted in a very spirited jam session at Faversham Folk Club in Kent, and a subsequent decision to put a three piece Bully Wee Band back on the road in January 2004 “if only for the craic”. So successful was the 2004 tour that Colin, Ian and Fergus decided to repeat the experience the following January, only this time with the addition of Bully Wee founder member Jim Yardley. Thus the current line up of Ian Cutler, Fergus Feely, Colin Reece and Jim Yardley was complete and reunited.

    They have toured every January since and we are delighted to have been included on their January 2019 tour, along with some of the most prestigious Folk Clubs in the country.

    Inspired by roots, blues and folk music Chris Fox writes contemporary songs about the human experience.
