This festive season Sarah Wiseman gallery is excited to reveal ‘Merry and Bright’; a show featuring bursts of zinging colour! ‘The annual Christmas show is something we always look forward to at the gallery,’ says gallery director Sarah Wiseman. ‘We’re focusing on colour this year, to really make the walls sing.’
We’re delighted to introduce works by the acclaimed artist Emily Powell. Emily’s joyful works are an exuberant, explosive expression of freedom and colour. She explores several subjects, from the beautiful Devon coastline where she lives and works, to pattern, animals or surreal still life.
As well has exhibiting her work to critical acclaim, her recent projects include painting doors of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital, collaborations with MoMA and British Museum, and was part of the 2020 BBC Documentary for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition Show. She has also recently published her first book, written with her sister Dr Sarah Moore; ‘Start Painting Now’.
Other highlights of ‘Merry and Bright’ include new works by Jim Whitty, renowned for his other worldly, contemporary take on British landscape; Fletcher Prentice, with striking flower-scapes inspired by his garden; there’s also printmaking by Anna Marrow, who specialises in brightly coloured silkscreen prints inspired by pop culture. ‘We’re also delighted to display ceramics by Oxfordshire based makers Katie Coston of Illyria Pottery and the mid-century modern style tableware from Kate Garwood,’ says Sarah.
‘This year, all works will also be available to view and purchase in our online shop, to make it as easy as possible for our customers,’ says Sarah. ‘We can ship anywhere in the world, and even offer gift wrap, if you need it.’
‘We’ll alert our email subscribers as soon as everything goes live, so the best way to stay in the loop is to sign up to our mailing list.’
