  • Craft Town Public Art Commission: Public Voting to Select the Winning Proposal

    • Saturday, 11 January 2020 - Saturday, 29 February 2020 at 10:00 - 17:00
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free entry

    We are delighted to invite the local community to vote and select the winning proposal for a new Craft Town Public Art commission.

    Manuela_s_proposal_WindowProposals were invited during the autumn for a public sculpture / artwork that is inspired by the heritage and tradition of crafts in Farnham. The artwork will celebrate crafts that have been practised in the area during the Roman period: the district was known as a pottery centre due to its supply of gault clay, oak woodland for fuel and good communication links.

    The sculpture aims to enhance the public knowledge and understanding of the heritage while also bringing pleasure to the community and visitors alike. The sculpture will be located next to a busy car park in the courtyard of the grade II listed building of the New Ashgate Gallery in Waggon Yard. The shortlisted artists are Walter Bailey, Manuela Kagerbauer and David Mayne and were selected by a panel, including Charlotte Hall (Waverley Borough Council), Vikki Leedham (Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden), Sue Farrow (Farnham Public Art Trust), Sarah Carrington Hubbard (freelance public art consultant) and Dr Outi Remes (New Ashgate Gallery).

    Come and view the proposals from 11 January and vote for your favourite sculpture. The winning proposal will be announced on 7 February. The sculpture will be installed in October 2020 - during the craft month in Farnham. The public art commission is supported by Arts Council England.

  • Jacky Paynter: Returning to Look

    • Saturday, 11 January 2020 - Saturday, 29 February 2020 at 10:00 - 17:00
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free entry

    Jacky Paynter's work is based on her experiences in St Ives throughout the year: wild weather and stormy seas, sunny days and rugged walks.

    Jacky_Paynter_Behind_PorthmeorJacky also finds inspiration in the working history that makes St Ives such a unique place, and in how today's pristine holiday cottages were once home to the poorest fishermen and their families. Information from sketches and the odd photographic reference are often the starting points. The paintings evolve in an intuitive, expressive way; layers will go on and come off again. Jacky seeks out unusual viewpoints and compositions. Her paintings, in acrylic, oil or mixed media, capture the atmosphere of St Ives and show her love of colour, texture, line and drawing.

    Yo Thom's work is thrown and hand-built functional stoneware with influence from both UK and Japan, but mostly from Japanese food culture.

    Yo_Thom__sugar_pot__new_ashgateShe creates tableware, which will become clothes for food, as Rosanjin once said.
