Paintings by Gerald Dewsbury and Chris Welsh. Wood-fired ceramics by Deiniol Williams and glass sculpture by Jenny Ayrton.

About

Working from his studio in North Wales in the hills that were frequented by Augustus John, Gerald Dewsbury produces detailed landscapes in heightened technicolour. In contrast the egg tempera still life paintings by Chris Welsh are soft in colour and mood. He recently had one of his paintings exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

Deiniol Williams first exhibited at Twenty Twenty Gallery not long after he had graduated. He had returned to the family farm in Wales where he is able to build his wood-fired kiln and he produced a memorable collection of work with strong potting skills and subtle glazes from the wood ash. Five years later and this new collection of work is from his most recent wood firing. In the intervening years Dieniol Williams has honed his skills and knowledge and the pots in this exhibition are more confident and exciting. This is a potter worth collecting!

Jenny Ayrton produces the most charming glass sculptures, which are slab cast with metal inclusions. Each has a simple story line, inĀ  'Camping Trip' a tent and a tree are 'drawn' with metal inclusions which are then enveloped in clear glass.

There is something homely and familiar about this exhibition but because of the quality of the skills and craftsmanship of the artists it is also serious and authoritative.
