Artist profiles:

Lawrie Williamson NDD, FRSA, RBSA, MAFA

Laurie Williamson - Bar End (Oil Study)Laurie Williamson - Bar End (Oil Study)

84-year-old Lawrie draws from a lifetime of experience and observation, his subjects varying widely from canvas to canvas.

Throughout his career, Lawrie’s talents have been widely recognised. He attended school in Derbyshire and it was clear from early years that he had a talent for painting. Aged 16 he won a major exhibition to study at Nottingham College of Art. Afterwards he went to Nottingham University and then attended the École des Beaux Arts in Paris. 
Lawrie is one of Ingleby Gallery’s most prized and highly collected artists. He says of his work: “I suppose I should say something specific about the paintings but they speak for themselves. They are a wordless language and quite specific.”

The Preview is on Friday October 31 from 5pm to 8pm with the exhibition open until Sunday November 9 2014.

Deborah paints landscapes with an emphasis on water.

Her approach embraces both representational and abstract elements.

She is a Member of The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and a Fellow of The Royal Society of Arts. She runs workshops at her studio at Hamstall Ridware, near Burton-upon-Trent.
Her exhibition ‘For the love of water and light’ is open from Sunday October 5 to October 19 2014 and will include both oil and watercolour paintings.

Vivienne Cawson

Vivienne said; ‘Pattern, colour and natural form are the focus for my floral watercolours. My inspiration is sparked by the colours and shapes of flowers, gorgeous fabric, a special jug or vase.

The contrast of natural form with geometric pattern is often a strong element in my work. I aim to produce a spontaneous response in my painting that is fresh and contemporary not merely a faithful reproduction of the information set out before me. It is my exciting journey which I hope helps to keep my painting alive with fresh, vibrant colour.’

Vivienne Cawson will talk about her work at the Preview of her exhibition on Sunday November 16, which is then open until Sunday November 30.

Anuk Naumann

Anuk Naumann will be exhibiting at Ingleby Gallery in September 2015. She works entirely in water based paints using collage to add texture to her pieces with her work ranging from landscape, both in Britain and abroad, to still-life (which she regards as her favourite).

Examples of Anuk’s techniques and methods can be found in many of the articles she has written for the Artist Magazine as well as in the books; ‘The Artist’s problem solver’, ‘The artist’s watercolour problem solver’ and ‘Rescue tactics’. All of which have been published by Harper Collins. Apart from her paintings a number of greeting card companies have published her work.
Anuk has exhibited in Galleries from Edinburgh to St Ives, including very successfully at Ingleby Gallery. She regularly opens her studio in Great Rollright, Oxfordshire so that people can come to find her work at its source.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ingleby Gallery so that you may enjoy the wide variety of art on display.
