Members update: Adeliza Mole, Dorothy Morris, John Gentry & Jonathan Evens

Adeliza Mole is exhibiting in We Are Forest at Sticks Contemporary, Unit 15, Gosport Precinct, South Street, Gosport PO12 1HA from 7 March – 7 April, Wednesday to Saturday, 11am to 4pm.

Artikinesis will be presenting a room-sized artwork exploring our relationship with trees.

adeliza mole 1Visitors can watch the artwork as it grows in the week before the exhibition opens, and later immerse themselves in the installation. Integrating painted and projected artwork with a haunting soundtrack composed for the work, it will be a calm space in an urban setting, a chance to contemplate what trees have to offer humanity. What answers do they hold to the problems we face as a species and as individuals? Should we be seeking to renew our acquaintance with our earthy, earthly companions? We owe the trees a great deal: since primeval times, these beneficial beings have cleansed our air; they have provided us with shelter, fuel, food and medicine. Do they speak among themselves? Do they seek to communicate with us? Walk through our forest, be part of it and find new forest paths of your own. More information at Posts about We Are Forest on Artikinesis.

Dorothy Morris runs Greenspace Gallery and is organising an exhibition there entitled ”Home”. She would like to invite artists to interpret this title to create a 2D or 3D piece of work. If anyone is interested can they get in touch with Dorothy by email to Dorothy_Morris@hotmail.com. Details and dates as yet to be confirmed but hopefully April 2018. 30% of the sales from this exhibition will go to the charity Shelter. This is because, during December 2017, a homeless man took shelter in the alcove of the gallery.

John Gentry is looking forward to opportunities for exhibiting with Gainsborough’s House Print Workshop members (often styled GHPWS). The workshop is housed in the refurbished stable block in the garden of Gainsborough House, 46 Gainsborough St. Sudbury, Suffolk. The childhood home of the painter is well worth a visit. It’s permanent exhibition of Gainsborough paintings is singularly memorable. There is always an engaging temporary exhibition in addition. In April at Addenbrookes  Hospital Cambridge, GHPWS has an Exhibition of Mini Prints produced by its members. In May the GHPWS annual exhibition will be held in the lovely setting of St. Peters Sudbury, a redundant but much used and beautiful 15th century building in the centre of Sudbury, Suffolk. A fine statue of Thomas Gainsborough  brush and palette in hand stands in front of St.Peters. In July GHPWS will be exhibiting at the Pond Gallery Snape Aldeburgh Suffolk.
Mark of the CrossJonathan Evens will lead Alternative Stations of the Cross, a service for Holy Week at St Martin-in-the-Fields, at 6.00pm on Monday 26 March in the Dick Sheppard Chapel. He will use meditations and images from ‘Mark of the Cross’, his collaboration with Henry Shelton, as well as showing the Stations of the Cross created by Valerie Dean. These images by our artists are available for download via theworshipcloud.com (see Buy art online). Mark of the Cross features 20 poetic meditations on Christ’s journey to the cross and reactions to his resurrection and ascension (images by Henry Shelton and words by Jonathan Evens). Stations of the Cross by Valerie Dean are available as a powerpoint presentationand as a pdf file. Her Stations of the Cross have a very clear and intense focus on details which are evocative of the whole. Individual images, pdfs and powerpoints for these collections are all available for download from The Worship Cloud. In addition, Jonathan’s recent art journalism includes a review of ‘Nature Morte’ for Church Times and an article about St James Piccadilly for Artlyst.
