    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.

    Treasure Island

    Long John Silver may be a dastardly villain, but he’s reckoned without the Ladies of St Michael's Players Women’s Institute! This is our largest cast pantomime and a madcap, laugh a minute pirate adventure story from start to finish. Ayye aye, that it is.

    Our world-famous pantomime returns once more to delight young and old. Based on the original ripping yarn, Ben Crocker's script adds all the panto fun into this gripping tale. So once again, lots of sing-a-long songs and laugh-a-long jokes and all-round feeling goodness. We have pirates (ooo), treasure (ooo) ships (ooo) and a parrot (yes, really).

    But will good triumph over evil this year? Come and see and find out.

    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.
