The Stable Workshop - Artist in Residence

Once again throughout this Summer we have a planned series of Artists and Makers in Residence in the Stable Workshop.  A chance for our visitors to meet them in person and see them creating their art work

Antony Bridge returned this year and spent a very productive week  in the area including Bevere Knoll garden.

The rain did not deter him.  Being a  'Plein Aire" artist he was out and about in the area surrounding the Gallery.


Artist in Residence June 2012- comment form Antony
"My 2nd year being artist in residence at the Gallery at Bevere. I left after my week last year feeling a great connection with the area, painting plein air in the fields and on the Bevere Green, that connection had not faded and enjoyed finding new views to paint with my pochade box. I was mainly drawn to the blooming pink potato fields which I stood in painting in the rain and cold wind. I enjoy so much visiting the gallery, seeing the staff who all look after you so well and excited about what I am producing. It was also nice to chat to some of the customers who have an interest in my work and shared view spots in the local area which I must go and paint soon, thank you".

It was great having your company Antony and sharing your excitement over the inspiring area around us. We are looking  forward to having some of these paintings in the Gallery for our visitors to see and enjoy.
