Jane Campion invites you to view her 2019 work. she will be painting in the gallery throughout this solo exhibition.

Jane Campion has been painting for three years. Sprout Arts has been central to supporting her vision and her confidence. She sold first at Sprout’s New Faces Exhibition 2017 and a subsequent members’ show. The current exhibition – Unframed - has been in the making only since January 2019, so represents a snapshot of her development as a painter.

Before painting, Jane’s passion for art was restricted to collecting, mainly the work of Alan Hepburn, watercolourist and prize winner in the Singer & Friedlander Awards. He will give a fascinating talk during the show about taking risks with light. Some of Alan’s work will hang in the show as inspiration demonstrating the way apprentice painters copy master works; in this case, Jane has worked from Alan’s paintings.

Jane will be painting full-time in the gallery throughout the two weeks of the show, encouraging passers by and visitors to the gallery to sit for her in three-hour sessions (with coffee breaks). These works will be added to the show.

Jane has been an assiduous student, so at her own workshop, you can expect a surprising take as well as invaluable tips for beginners to improve their painting. (In this she credits all the excellent teachers she has worked with at The Royal Drawing School; Heatherley’s School of Fine Art; Dulwich Art Group and School, and; The Art Academy in Borough.)

Observation and Imagination

Etching, Painting Photography and Drawing 

by Peter Solari

Monday 15th - Saturday 27th April 2019

11am – 5.30pm

Private View Saturday 20th April, 6.30 - 8.40pm

I would like the works to evoke my love of the British landscape and in some way captures the power and beauty of our surroundings. Landscape dominates this exhibition (although not entirely) and is represented through more literal representations and by surrealist influenced work. Both styles represent the conscious and subconscious response to the world around me. Some are local, others from around the country (Skye, Somerset, The lakes, etc). I hope that you enjoy it.

@ Sprout Arts

TTT JB 2 TTT JB 4

 

All welcome to our fun creative workshop for adults & children where we'll use scrap materials to create exciting sculptures. Transforming the lost umbrellas of Tooting, we'll be, Jellybrella artists, making our community beautiful with stories & hands-on making together.

We’ll re-use waste materials to make giant sea creatures, sea flowers & jellyfish. Or make your Jellybrella into a message or poem with a cascade of words. 

Neglected umbrellas will come alive with their trailing tentacles of many colours as proud makers parade them. If it rains…we’ll have our Jellybrellas!

The storyteller will move us with tales of lost & found umbrellas & living with less waste, helping us all be artists taking care of the health & wellbeing of our neighbours, community & city.

All materials provided - if you like please bring your own favourite or neglected umbrella (surprise us!) to transform into a Jellybrella.

Come for the whole day or drop in - allow 2 hours to make the most of the fun.

We can’t wait to see what you create & at the end you can take away your Jellybrella or leave it with us for exhibition locally in Tooting Community Garden.

Supported by Wandsworth Arts Fringe through Wandsworth Grant Fund.
