Exhibition: Out of the Dolls House: 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage and Fashion
From corsets to bra-burning, fashion has been closely linked to women’s equality for well over 100 years.
Join us this spring to discover how fashions have changed during the last 100 years, as the role of women in society has been radically altered since first getting the vote in February 1918.

- Saturday, 21 April 2018 - Saturday, 2 June 2018
- Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
- Cost: N/A
The New Ashgate Gallery is presenting new work by Pete Jackman. Pete’s drawings and paintings are interpretations of landscapes and objects within the landscape in a semi abstract form.
The Icelandic landscape has a pristine, raw and dynamic quality, looking brand new and ancient at the same time.
It is physically and visually challenging, informing the artist's mark making and colour palette. The work represents his impressions and reactions to particular places and forms within the landscape. It is developed from sketches, photographs and memories, which through stages of drawings and over drawing, using layers or various media, tend to become more abstract as the work evolves.
As each piece progresses the work becomes its own reference, where the original source image may just be represented in the form of a particular shape, texture or colour. The drawings are created with layers of graphite, soft pastels, and chalks, these layers may then be cut through to expose earlier marks, with further overdrawing and colouring to create a more complex surface. A similar process of layering is also involved in the paintings, but due to the medium, the emphasis is on overpainting and glazes.
