Since moving to Rockfield Road in Hereford, Apple Store Gallery has added artists studios to its portfolio. Situated at the entrance to a creative and industrial enclave close to Hereford Station and Bus Station, it has become (along with Artsite 3 next door) a venue where around 40 artists are basing their practice.
Our exhibition features a range of work by both established and emerging artists.
Delightful oil landscapes of the Welsh Marches by Chris Williams, who participated in Sky's 'Landscape Artist of the Year' 2017, sit alongside ink and watercolour impressions of the Malverns by Kate Culling. Levi Cooke, recent winner of the 'Cultivate' project at Hereford's Courtyard Centre for the Arts uses ink and gold leaf to create emotional portraits of the local landscape.
Matthew Day writes of his work: 'It is this ethereal quality I strive to evoke via a process of making that is driven by my passion for digital technologies'.
In an attempt to increase the appeal of stained glass in a domestic environment, Marion Campbell has been exploring the use of concertina screens to show work inspired by classical music.
Kate Dawson has produced a new body of work for h.Art and revisited porcelain paper clay through her popular poppies, with a new twist.
Patrick Mooney has been exploring collage as a way of synthesising his interests which are complemented by his emotional poems.
We are also featuring collages by Rachel Hughes, winner of our ASG/HCA Exhibition Prize 2017.
