COST: Free

Bob Davison: Borders
 

Bob Davison's paintings and drawings evolve from his interest in nature, scienceand landscape. He may begin figuratively, from observation, noting colour, pattern, structure and space. Much of the work as it develops becomes unrecognisable and abstract, attempting to show how we perceive things. Marks, colour, pattern and space become a complex mix; elements become transient and elusive. Details and contrasts seen in garden borders and Cotswold landscapes become striking combinations of colour, marks and shapes.

Bob has been teaching on the BA course at the Art School/University in Cheltenham for over 30 years. For the first twenty he commuted from his studio in London. Fifteen years ago he moved to Stroud. He has had many roles at the University, including Fine Art Field Chair and Course Leader of Fine Art Painting and Drawing.

He has exhibited widely and has works in many national and private collections. Locally they may be found in Glos Royal Hospital, The University of Gloucesteshire and Willans & Willans in Cheltenham.

The progress of The Walled Garden Project at the Museum in the Park has provided a great opportunity to exhibit some of Bob's recent work, particularly those that maintain their reference to landscape, gardens and plants. Much of the work stems from observations in his garden, just outside Stroud.

Jenny Wren Productions present: Robin Hood
 

"Beware outlaws! They are a plague, and a pestilence, and a blight.”

None more so than Robin Hood: he’s bold, he’s brave, he’s keen (and he’s rather smug).

Jenny Wren and her Merry Men take on the infamous Sheriff of Nottingham in this new adaptation of Robin Hood. As he strives to win the Golden Arrow and the hand of the valiant Maid Marian, Robin and his motley crew entertain all the family with our own brand of action, adventure, astonishingly attractive actors and… appalling green tights.

It’s just Robin, and some men, and the forest… Perfectly delightful.

The Letter as Art

Saturday 06/08/2016
to
Monday 29/08/2016

COST: Free

The Letter as Art
 

It has always been said that there is an art to writing letters, but the letters of the alphabet – no matter which language – are art forms in themselves.

This varied exhibition explores permutations of the letter as art – the individual letters of alphabets, the various ways that they can be written, whether printed as poetry or as letters with their attendant calligraphy, using a variety of printing techniques. These include hand-printing, letterpress, and the artist interpretation of a letter or letters together with the individual nature of various alphabets.

If a picture paints a thousand words, in this exhibition we will let the thousand words paint the picture.

Gaining Momentum with your Mobile
 

The course is facilitated by Kel Portman and aimed at photographers who want to get the best out of their smartphone or tablet camera.

Camera use is changing rapidly with many photographers both amateur and professional using mobile devices like smartphones and tablets instead of their ‘old fashioned’ cameras.

Although simple to use, there are features that many users fail to find and with advances in simple to use editing apps and software, photographs taken on smartphones and tablets can offer a new and exciting means of creativity and self expression.

This practical course will help you develop your understanding of photography and won’t confuse you with ‘Gobbledeegook’ or technical jargon.

We’ll be walking the grounds of Stratford Park’s diverse landscape as our subject, so you’ll need to bring suitable footwear and dress appropriately for the British Climate.

Bring with you your device (smartphone or tablet) and make sure you have enough spare memory available. Make sure it has a full charge and bring your charger, just in case. 

Participants will be contacted before the course with a small list of Apps and software to download…much of it will be free or very minimal cost.

Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but please bring a packed lunch to keep you going.

What the course will cover:

  • Subject, Selection & Image composition
    Applications, software and gadgets
    Macro
  • Landscape
  • Difficult lighting condition and night photography at The University of the Arts London
