"Fells and Lakes"
17th Apr 2012 - 27th May 2012
Recent oils and pastels by Godfrey Tonks. A regular exhibitor at Upfront who has a solo show every two years. Godfrey is a colourist who works in both pastel and oil. He uses colour to create a picture that demands attention. His work is characterised by richness of surface, whether pastel or oil, using a brush or a painting knife. His work is in a constant state of flux and change as he pursues his individual vision. A constant theme is light, colour and strong composition in an attempt to capture the essence of the challenging Lakes landscape, which he portrays in an emotional yet unsentimental manner, always seeking to avoid the trite and the hackneyed in an iconic landscape that has inspired poets and artists for the last 200 years.
Bi-annual exhibition showing Godfrey's recent collection of Oils and Pastels.

Colin Blanchard & Lisa Hooper
Colin and Lisa both live in Dumfries and Galloway (although at the extreme opposite east and west edges of the county).They are both inspired by the birds and wildlife they have around them and both are passionate about the possibilities and potential of ‘real’ printmaking.
In this exhibition of over 30 prints, both large and small, they have used only hand craft techniques such as lino and wood cutting, etching and silk screen printing to produce a range of beautiful and truly limited small editions which have unique qualities only to be found with these direct (not reproduction) print media.
