    Beyond Landscape: Deborah Burnstone & Alison Lumb

    Includes artists’ talk: 23 November,  2.30pm. No need to book.

    Featuring paintings, prints and video, this two-woman show explores the resonance of urban, edgeland and coastal places and reveals landscape to be as much a psychological and cultural space as a physical location.

    Alison Lumb is interested in how certain places and situations enable us to enter a state in which the world and time are held in suspension, and we slip loose from our conscious sense of self and identity. Her prints and paintings feature a range of liminal subjects such as train journeys and people at play, in public spaces and lost in contemplation.

    She often combines printmaking and painting. Her hybrid prints can involve screen print, monoprint and digital printmaking. She feels that this layered way of working suits the way we encounter the world: filtered through other media, our cultures, and our personal life experience.

    Deborah Burnstone explores places at the edges of human settlement – stretches of road at night, landscapes at dusk, the coast, the riverbank. In her paintings and videos people gaze out to sea and wander the landscape. ‘At these places there’s a gap in our day-to-day world and we sense something beyond us,’ she says. In her paintings Deborah searches for a simple painterly way of expressing this experience. Her videos interweave sound, voice, stories, time and place and are made from spontaneous encounters with people and place.

    Barnes Artists event

  • 30 November -0001 - 31 August 2020Visual Arts/Film

    This exhibition is a new series art created during lockdown that explores the themes of repetition, meditation and contemplation

    The artwork consists of many thousands of shredded pieces. Some include photoluminescent pigments that have been an ongoing interest for the artist. Digital pixels in appearance but very much an analogue creative process.

    The practice of destroying something to be able to create something runs through the series.

    Visitors are invited to bring their own papers, photos and documents that can be shredded at the exhibition for the artist to use in future artworks. A symbolic act to let go of something that they no longer want in their life that takes on a new life.

    A passion for making art was awakened whilst studying counselling and psychotherapy. Mr Mr Pearce has attended the Richmond School of Painting and also numerous courses run by the Slade School of Fine Art during their annual summer school, including their Foundation course.

    Artistic influences include Lee Krasner and Briget Riley. Other influences include psychotherapy, in particular the archetypes of Jung and Assagioli's inclusion of spirituality into his theories of the human psyche. Optical illusions, psychedelia, electronic music and the repetition of minimal classical music also have an influence.

    Exhibition is open (but gates are closed)

    Due to COVID we are restricting the numbers of people this weekend for everyone’s safety. Therefore, the gates will be kept closed this weekend while the exhibition is on.

    Sh*t-faced Shakespeare®: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

    The smash-hit, internationally acclaimed, award-winning, multi sell-out fringe phenomenon is finally off on a UK tour with their version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Sh*t-faced Shakespeare is the hilarious combination of an entirely serious adaptation of a Shakespearian classic, with an entirely sh*t-faced cast member. With one cast member selected at random and given 4 hours to drink before every show, we present to you classical theatre as it was always meant to be seen. With a gin in one hand, a cup of wine in the other and a flagon of ale in the other…. What could possibly go wrong?

    Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare adapted by Jojo Leppink. Directed by Jojo Leppink and Emily Moss

    A modern take on the Shakespeare classic. Two teenagers stuck in a family feud between Montague Property Development and the old Capulet Garage that just won’t budge. Throw in a long suffering MP with a “safer streets” campaign, a misguided therapist, overzealous best friends, pre-drinks and Aladdin Sane(?) and the well-known tragedy is complete.

    We are very excited to be bringing this adaption to our members and audience!

    The Lost Dress of Elizabeth I

    The Bacton Altar Cloth at Hampton Court Palace

    The only surviving example of Elizabeth I's dresses

    Following new research and conservation, Historic Royal Palaces Curators believe that the Bacton Altar Cloth once formed part of a dress worn by Elizabeth herself.

    The high-status silver chamblet silk, professional embroidery including gold and silver thread, and distinct evidence of pattern cutting all suggest that the item was once an item of elite court dress. Tudor law meant that only the very highest levels of nobility and royalty were allowed to wear dress that contained gold and silver.

    New research supports the theory that this was intended for the highest level of customer and that it is an item of dress from Elizabeth's own wardrobe, making it the only known surviving example of Elizabeth I's clothing.
