When the nights are at their longest, paintings of light shine especially brightly. Radiance brings together six artists who recreate light in their work. Two, Fred Cuming RA and Michael Fairclough, paint extraordinarily brilliant skies and water. Two, Jeremy Gardiner and Rachel Fenner, concertina time by painting light effects on coastal geology. And two are very old friends: David Inshaw, whose sunsets, bonfires, slanting light and lightning electrify his pictures, and Alfred Stockham, whose paintings both abstract and more figurative glow with glorious colour.
In addition to original paintings, we have new prints by David Inshaw, Jeremy Gardiner and Rachel Fenner. We introduce two new makers to Sladers Yard, ceramicist Franny Owen and jeweller Lynne Strover, both of whom have come late to their craft with clear ideas of what they want to achieve and exceptional ability to make beautiful things.
Petter Southall shows new large scale steam-bent garden rooms in similar curves to his sculptural Wave, alongside his exquisite furniture.
