Keeping Jane Corsellis company

What nicer way to spend time with visitors  on a wet Thursday afternoon than sitting amongst some Pembrokeshire watercolours by Jane Corsellis sharing a pot of tea.

A good few days

Although the extreme heat didn't quite reach the western side of Wales the sun shine did and this week the gallery has sold well, as on previous occasions a large abstract print alongside a coastal scene indicate that it is necessary to always show a cross section of work.....and this summer there will be just that ....many abstract works including a beautiful signed print by Anthony Frost...son of the late Terry Frost through to a beach scene with children playing in the sand by James Mackeown.... a wonderful eclectic mix...

Luke Piper

A trip to visit a Luke Piper exhibition held in a barn to die for sounded wonderful...so setting off in a car that seemed even more eager to arrive than it's occupants, the venue was reached well ahead of schedule..

A tithe barn near Shepton Mallet with it's new roof and it's timbers made from green oak could not have been more suitable for the paintings of various points on the St Michaels Ley line....one of the most famous in the world and on May 8th each year the sun is aligned to this ancient path that cuts across Southern England..

The exhibition was faultless from the layout of the pictures to the pleasantness of people there and after many canapés and a chat with Luke Piper who spends time in Pembrokeshire and will call at the  Gallery next time in Wales, the return journey began....definitely a worthwhile trip and fingers crossed that a new Artist may soon appear...

Looking forward to Saturday

A strong body of work will be on show.....the invitation recently sent out, featured images by  Jane Corsellis, Emily Gregory Smith, Jenny Slater, Anne Kerr and Karen Shapley...

There are many other names of note involved in this exhibition...Anita Klein being one of them, she has a number of prints on show, Anita prints with Advanced graphics in London and is very highly regarded...

As with all previous shows, emerging artists are encouraged and photographer Karel Mujica is one whose work will catch the eye..

We hope you will call and see this excellent show.... Female Expression Explored... coffee, wine and soft drinks with nibbles served throughout the day ...

Female Expression Explored

On Saturday the 16th May, this interesting exhibition will open..

More details to follow but this show will feature new Artists and some of the paintings will be the largest so far displayed at the gallery..

Also new, will be a selection of ceramics and pottery, they are exciting and different and these alongside the photography, prints and paintings will bring yet another dimension to the ever evolving Late November Gallery..

One year on

And April 11th dawned sunny but cold, by 8.30 am the new banner was aloft and within an hour unsuccessful bets had been placed on the Grand National.

The Gallery opened for the first visitors before 10am and from then on a steady flow of people, many new to the Gallery came throughout the day..

New Kid on the block, 21year old Theo Crutchley-Mack was highly regarded and the general verdict for this young man who amongst other accomplishments designed the 50p coin for the London Olympics Cycling event,  was, that this is an artist with a future...

The other find was Ceri Pritchard, lately of France and Mexico, has  returned to his native Wales to live near his parents. Gwilym Prichard and Claudia Williams, both highly regarded artists in the U.K....Ceri has chosen the Late November Gallery to represent him and his choice of subject and palette gives the gallery a definite delineation of anything parochial.

At 4.30pm after a day of good sales and many many people the order was given to lower the banner and the door closed on a very successful first year in SA61...

This kids got something.....

Certainly has Ross, and if you would like to see whose work the artist and printmaker Ross Loveday was commenting on, then call at the Gallery on April 11th .....

on that day the Late November will celebrate it's first year, on show will be a wonderful cross section of work and what will be noticable from April 2014 is the progress made in 12months...the exhibition space has greatly increased and there are many new Artists and like Ross today, continually bring fresh work so the Gallery never appears stale.

If you read this blog and would like to call on April 11th for a coffee or glass of wine please do, everything is very informal and you can wander around unhindered as even the Gallery dogs will walk on tip toes should peace and quiet be the order of the day 

John Knapp Fisher

Sad day in South West Wales as John Knapp Fishers funeral took place on Saturday..he and his partner Gillian Pare  had only called at the gallery some four weeks earlier and John, though needing to occasionally sit was extremely interested in seeing what was on the walls and talked enthusiastically about painting again..

Hope there is an art shop nearby John, because you mustn't let this little mishap get in the way....

Winter Solstice over..

And as the sun returns, out pops William Gear..there were four, now three..and keeping these company is a drawing by John Bratby...all recent acquisitions, well worth seeing, making  this a quality start to 2015

With a number of shows spread throughout the year, the exhibition planned for May will introduce a number of new Artists to the Gallery, at least one showing in Wales for the first time....

2015 has started well and everything points to further success as the gallery continues to attract people from an ever increasing distance...

Playing Hooky...

....But learnt a lot with a trip to the London Art Fair, with major galleries present, it was interesting to see how work was displayed and observe the interaction between staff and visitors to their stand...also quietly noting that some Artists showing at these exhibiting Galleries are also part of the make up of the Late November Gallery....seeing a David Martin oil painting, screen prints by Basil Beattie or Neil Canning, not to mention William Gear are all good examples. 

Whilst being blown away seeing the likes of Hitchens, Auerbach and many other major names in British Art, it was far from disconcerting and the day away has become a very important learning  curve for the future....with only one thought..... we know which way is up.....
