Julian Bailey and Richard Batterham from 6 June

At the Waterfront

6 June to 19 July 2015

Bringing together three dedicated and gifted artists, this exhibition celebrates strong lines and clarity of execution coupled with the perfectly simplified gesture, stroke or detail, with which all three distinguish their work whether in paintings, ceramics or furniture. Each  allows subtleties in their work to speak out with the use of gentle colours, curves and textures to create powerfully attractive and desirable pieces.

‘Whole, true to themselves, emotionally rich and seemingly spontaneous…

‘Bailey’s paintings belong to a world of which he is himself very much a part. His art has the power to strike a rich chord; the ability to evoke the full choreography of life in all its timbre and cadence, light and joy.

‘This is a deeply engaged and deeply engaging painter who has achieved what he set out achieve, namely a truly viable language in paint.’

Extracts from Vivienne Light FRSA’s foreword to the catalogue for this exhibition.

Richard Batterham

Richard Batterham #13-3

Potter Richard Batterham is probably this country’s leading maker of domestic stoneware. He has been firing his pots at his Dorset pottery since the sixties. Some pots, he says, ‘call out to me that they are really good ones’ and those are most of the pots we have in this show. As a lot of the pots had sold, we have added 28 new pots from Richard’s latest firing. Photographs of all the pots in the show can be seen here. Please call 01308 459511 or email gallery@sladersyard.co.uk if you would like to enquire about any of Richard Batterham’s work.

      Hi Jane, Thanks so much for your interest.
      If you click on any of the pictures you like, they should appear larger and with prices and size etc. Then you can look through them as a slide show. If you have any difficulties with this, let me know and I will email you a price list. Many thanks, Anna Powell
