FROM DECEMBER 5

CHRISTMAS EXHIBITION

Thompson’s Gallery, Aldeburgh

In a time when going to a public exhibition or art gallery is more of a challenge than usual the Thompson Gallery is excited to be able to hold its annual exhibition - a wonderful opportunity to show paintings and sculpture by over 25 different artists both old and new connected to the gallery from both the 20th and 21st Centuries.
Among the highlights is a lithograph by Henry Moore ‘Reclining Woman’; a fantastic example of the series. Also on show are several John Piper originals as well as work by Peggy Somerville and Hugh Boycott-Brown who both so loved East Anglia. Fred Yates ‘Cornish Cottage Interior’ is also among the pictures to be viewed, showing the rich use of paint and strong colours he favoured.
More contemporary artists include the sculptor Gus Farnes and painters Mike Healey, James Tweedie and Simeon Stafford. Tessa Newcomb, Jo Taylor and Kate Giles are also contributing to the show.
There’s the chance to see work by two veterans of the art world; Fred Cuming and Padraig Macmiadhachain. Works include a beautifully ethereal winter landscape by Cuming, described by many as the foremost landscape artist of our age, and a in complete contrast in style and medium, the abstract ‘Afternoon, Marakesh’ by Macmiadhachain.
There is a limit of eight visitors at a time in the gallery and all government guidelines are being carefully followed.
