Words from SAW Chairman
Firstly we’d like to thank Pauline Watson for having chaired SAW for so many
years with such attentive and detailed care. It’s a complex ship to helm and she
has steered SAW with great skill and ambition. We look forward to her continued
contributions to the board.
This year is Open Studios - a chance for visitors to see the heart of Somerset’s
creativity. There is a huge variety of work out there to see and an equal variety
of people and places to visit. It’s a chance for you to explore!
“Somerset Arts Week is a much-loved and
thriving annual event and I’m proud to
support it.
It plays an invaluable role in identifying
and celebrating a huge variety of creative
activities and projects in this county, finding
emerging artists and raising awareness of
them. I urge you to go out and enjoy this
glorious week of cultural exploration.”
Kevin McCloud

A message from
Friends of SAW Committee
How dull our lives would be without the visual arts. It is therefore important that we support our
Somerset artists, as many of you kindly do.
During the past year the combined contributions from our Friends and Corporate Friends has directly
enabled SAW to offer bursaries, prizes, sponsorships and placements to graduates and emerging artists.
A career in the arts is a precarious journey and this support really does make a difference.
Seek out the hidden studios, find secret masterpieces; it’s a good time to buy
at artists’ prices too.
Being a Friend of SAW is a direct way for people who enjoy art to become involved. As a Friend you
receive invitations to Friends events, private views of the works of SAW members, a copy of the annual
Guide and regular information. As an extra thank you, Friends names are entered into a Prize Draw 4
times a year providing the chance of winning an original piece of art work kindly donated by a
SAW member.
Open Studio is an opportunity to talk to the makers, discussing techniques
and theories. Open studios, open minds.
The generous support of our Corporate Friends Scheme has been of great benefit in helping SAW fulfil its
commitment to promoting and developing the visual arts in Somerset.
Lastly take the chance to really get to know Somerset: the extraordinarily varied
landscape; the vigorous food and drink culture; the significant historic and
spiritual past. Somerset is a huge county with a complex cultural fabric.
Explore! Enjoy!

Special Projects
Welcome to Somerset Art Weeks 2012. The event features 221 venues this year
with more than 300 artists taking part. Each year, we promise to take the Open
Studios event to a new level, by showcasing some of the new commissions and
projects SAW have initiated, organised and/or curated, alongside the diverse
range of work presented by artists in Somerset.
Studio Works
Artists in their creative space
Welcome to our world! From the field nearby, to the garden, from the purpose built studio, to the kitchen
table just to name a few examples keeping the creativity alive. In Somerset, there are a very small number
of professional studio spaces and public galleries for artists and yet, the artistic community is thriving. Open
Studios gives the public an insight into how the artists work and are inspired. To celebrate this, 11 artists
were invited to work with our guide designer Chantelle Henocq, graduate photographer Sebastian King
and Somerset based writer David Davis, to produce a collection of images that are incorporated in the guide
and other publicity materials. Participating artists are Amanda Khan-Davis, David Brayne, Emma Scott,
George Foweraker, Jane Brayne, Jane Mackey, John Candler, Melanie Moulding, Pauline Rooke,
Simon Ledson and Val George. Larger scales of the images will be exhibited at The Brewhouse Theatre
& Arts Centre. For details please see Venue 138 p53.
Table of Contents
Studio Open
Artists Exchange and residency
In collaboration with SVA in Stroud and supported
by Reveal Somerset, the Brewhouse turns into a
temporary artist studio to host resident artist
Eunju Yoo from Stroud and Hazel Holman,
an emerging artist from Somerset. A short film
documenting the Somerset based artist group,
Hacker Farm who carried out their residency in
the Open Studios event at SVA in May, will also be
shown. For details please see Venue 138, p53.
Flight of Crane
Exhibition inspired by The Great Crane Project
As part of the on-going partnership between SAW
and The Great Crane Project, we collaborate
with Somerset Crafts, an artists’ co-operative,
to present an exhibition featuring a wide range
of works inspired by cranes and their living
environment in Somerset. The exhibition also
features an art installation of hundreds of origami
paper cranes created by Lucy Lean in collaboration
with schools and the community. For details
please see Venue 27, p14.
Maximum Exposure
Bringing Contemporary Arts to Somerset
Art Weeks is an ideal opportunity for SAW to
showcase two of the Maximum Exposure
commissions, namely One to Twenty, a 13 metre
long inflatable sculpture by artists Claire Barber
and Steve Swindells and a film documenting the
Taunton Stop Line Live Project by artists Rob
and Matt Vales. For Details see p68 & 77.

Ceramics and landscape paintings. Paintings are
atmospheric, studies of the landscape. The studio
opens into the garden with space to work outside.
I make drawings and oil paintings of people; some
I know, some I don’t. Often they are outsiders but
there is always a touch of an old memory. Time
passes ever more quickly and I try to capture the
fleeting moments of almost arcadian pleasure.
Russell Coates, Hiro Takahashi
Sarah creates scarves, rugs, wall-hangings and soft
furnishings including commission work. Her textiles
are inspired by techniques that use graduated colour
to give a feeling of movement and harmony. Sal
paints with watercolour washes and glazes, using
points of stillness to create contrast, movement and
light. David’s ‘Authors of Our Work’ uses words,
images and sound. It looks at ‘collected word’
and collaborative poems that connect us to who
we are and who we will become. David’s writing
collaboration with photographer Sebastian King and
graphic designer Chantelle Henocq on Studio Works,
commissioned for Open Studios 2012, is at The
Brewhouse Arts Centre, SAW venue 138.

Directions: Take road opposite Coleford co-op, continue; turn right into
High Street, pass Mill lane, Noone Cottage is further on left.
In my recent work I want to engender the spirit of
ancient rock carvings; the mystery of the marks,
a sense of being worn by time but still discernible,
with a hidden language.
I use materials to reflect these elements and take
the work through a series of processes: dyed
grounds, batiking, collage, printing, cutting and piecing. Prices range from £90 (unframed) to £600, with
substantial reductions on older work.

Red Brick Building
Nightingale Studio
Paul Branson, Richard Pelham, Julie Avenell
Richard Turner
The Red Brick building is a major new educational
centre promoting arts and crafts in Somerset. During
Somerset Art Weeks, we are showing artists in
their embryonic studios with particular focus on the
relationship between art work and the space within
which it is created. Paul Branson’s paintings reflect
the Somerset landscape with simplified forms and
a heightened palette of colours. His watercolours
are mostly created by tearing up paintings executed
outdoors. Richard Pelham creates specific design
windows using opal glass and cathedral glass. He
enjoys creating windows that take the elements
presented by the house owner and the location.
Julie Avenell’s work is photography and textiles.
It’s all about pastel.
- Exhibits comprising of paintings, sketches and
monochrome preparatory work will aim to reflect the
range and versatility of this medium.
- My figurative style is inspired by light and rooted
in design.
- My materials include hand-crafted pastels, the
materials and information for making these will also
be on display. Craig Askew, Kate Chidley, Claire Springfield
Bronwen Bradshaw, Tony Martin and Pennie Elfick
exhibit paintings, prints, collages, drawings and
video. Their work has the common theme of an
abstraction that remains rooted in the world as they
experience it. Bronwen Bradshaw’s etchings
grow from random markmaking into carefully
edited series; she also makes video and books.
Tony Martin imagines spaces evoked by music and
poetry. Old trackways and Saxon architecture also
inspire his etchings and drawings. Pennie Elfick
uses observation of her environment as a starting
point. Her colours are often soft and elusive. The
artists will be working in the studios, and will give a
talk about their work on Saturday 22nd, 2 - 4pm. S S M T W T F S S M T W T F S S

a modern look. I also apply my own hand printed
papers to objects personalising them and giving
them depth and a vintage look. My jewellery reflects

Ian Beckton: Importance of form, fluidity and
surface brilliance are the criteria and strength for
these hand-built pots. Discipline and enthusiasm are
equally demonstrated in the making and the final
flourish that is so carefully applied during the final

are glimpses of a simple everyday intimacy. I am

person is unaware of being observed, there is
something very honest and private about that
moment. I work in both oils and pastels, with prices
ranging from £500 to £5000.
Private view Friday 14th September 7- 9 pm,
everyone welcome.

HOME & AWAY - New work inspired by my travels
to Kenya, France and Madeira and, closer to home,
in the Somerset Levels and Snowdonia. Paintings,
photo-etchings and drawings. I will be working in
my studio throughout Art Weeks and am happy to
explain my working methods. Card payments can be
accepted through Pay Pal.
Colourful watercolours painted with verve and
variety: boats and barns, sheep and shoes, flowers
and feathers...( plus artistry and alliteration,
obviously)... I paint what takes my fancy! I love the
life and light of watercolours and the range of
things you can do with them. Yet I also enjoy the
restraint of black-and-white drawings. Working
in the framework of Spring Farm Artists results in
a ‘cross-pollination’ which benefits the Art, the
Artists and the Visitors! Open studios with display of domestic slipware,
showing a wide range of work from egg-cups to
large jugs and bowls in warm, cheerful colours and
continuing the English slipware of combining words
with rural themes in the decoration.

A varied exhibition, in the artist’s home, of drawings,

abstract pieces, landscapes, life drawing and work
inspired by the built environment reflecting Michael’s
earlier career as an architect.
I changed my life and one and half years ago, I came
to England. I started painting in England, before I
was never painting. After my time in India, where I
went to find a new direction in my life and practiced
yoga I felt I wanted to paint with oil colours. Painting
is my meditation. In my pictures are my feelings,
part of me. When I’m painting I don’t think what
is right and what isn’t. It’s a gift from Life – they
are special.

Landscapes and Seascapes.
The treatment of light in pictures is fascinating and
challenging to me. Living in the Quantock Hills and
surrounded by Exmoor, coupled with the influence
of my Australian background and travels in Africa
and North and South America provide me with
endless inspiration. Watercolour has always been a
preferred medium; however I am now experimenting with acrylics and mixed media also. Prices from
£75 - £500.

Bernadette Ash
Sally Bryant, Steepholme Shed
A temporary studio showing oil paintings/woodcuts
and working on woodcuts during these two weeks.
An outdoor painter working mainly in this Somerset
coastal strip. The woodcuts give me another
dimension to explore different ways of making
images. I use what is already in the wood to inspire
me to respond and develop a new image - maybe
a lapwing, sheep, a line of poetry - the possibilities
are infinite. FACES and PLACES
Inspired by the faces and places she encounters,
Sally’s work ranges from sensitive graphite drawings
to large scale expressive paintings. Each piece
examines the colours and textures of the subject in a
unique and luminous manner. Produced in her home
studio, each work offers a beautiful interpretation of
its inspiration. Prices £40 to £400

Ask the painter how they do it,
that’s simple –

it takes longer

palette to enable me to work quickly. Occasionally
sketchbook material is worked up in the studio, but
larger abstract and stylised work usually evolves
from memory. My sketchbooks, as always, will be on

Trousers, Transvestites and Tracing Paper. We’ve never exhibited together before, so we
thought it would be fun to enter as a family.
Liz’s work is colourful and bold. She works in
acrylic, ink and pastel. “This exhibition will focus on
some of my favourite garments, worn and faded,
but part of who I am”. Alice is studying illustration
at UWE. Her work is experimental, lively and edgy. It
is often based around people she sees in the street
and fleetingly overheard conversation. Richard is an
architectural illustrator and has worked on some very
high profile projects. “I love drawing both from the
street and as if I were a bird.”
Noonsburrow Studio a venue with fantastic views
over the Vale of Taunton Deane.
Jone Delahaye: An exhibition of paintings, posters
and handmade cards combining recent and
retrospective works. Uses a mix of tools and media

Judy Crosher, Linda Hollingshead, Kristen Mercer, Susan Wallis
King’s College, Taunton features four members
of Somerset Contemporary Artists’ Network.
Judy: Paradoxically, porcelain is fragile,
exotic, impermeable, luxurious and essentially
indestructible. Judy exploits it in non-utilitarian ways,
evoking and subverting its traditional associations.
Linda: Nature inspires Linda’s uplifting paintings
filled with light and sparkle, reflecting landscape and
ocean in mixed-media with collage and embedded
light-reflective materials. Kristen’s paintings
are entirely intuitive, combining play, planning,
spontaneity, accident and gesture to create a mix of
order, chaos, harmony and discord that ultimately
resonates a sense of self. Susan’s paintings (also
used in textiles, book and film) explore the spirituality
of myths and legends, particularly goddesses and
animal totems.

Thread
An exhibition of new and original work displayed
within my home. These series have been crafted
and created in my studio which is situated within
the garden.
I continue to develop a unique style of contemporary
painting from the use of found materials, including
rusted metal, felt, acrylic, wallpaper, wound
dressings, linen, reused cheese cloth, leather
and velvet...all work completed with my signature
‘hand stitching’. Both artists graduated from Somerset College with
First Class Honours in June 2011.
Gill’s background in Performing Arts makes an
interest in the human form inevitable, focusing on
parts of the figure rather than the whole.
Nigel’s collages, created from individually hand-cut
pieces, reflect his fascination with the worlds of
science and space. He prefers not to influence the
viewer by titling his work, thus allowing individual
interpretation.
Both artists are happy to undertake commissions
Each year the Art and Design faculty at
Somerset College produces a large number of
talented graduates. This exhibition celebrates the
quality of the work produced by the graduates of
2012. Selected graduate artists are:
Leah Hislop - Installation, Grace Richmond Animation and textiles, Jemma Schultz - Mixed
Media, Barbara White - Mixed Media, Gillian
Widden - Sculpture, Liam Godwin - Graphics.

more complex works on canvas. I look forward to

As an animal artist I am inspired by the emotional

I produce individualistic ink and bleach paintings,
lino prints and drawings in more traditional media.
You will be able to use the monocular microscope to

prints and originals for sale £2.50 - £250
A wide variety of wildlife paintings in watercolour,
oil and acrylic.Richard’s inspiration comes from far
and wide - amongst the wonderful physique of the
levels with their ever changing scenes of nature - or
from his travels farther afield where his love of the
high moors of Cumbria, Scottish firths or remote
Africa, and abundance of wildlife all provide him with
further material for his paintings. Empirical art from nature in the tradition from Titian
to Turner: landscapes, portraits, still-life, birds and
animals in oil painting, water colour and drawing.

Brian Dix
After the success of last year’s exhibition, sisters
Charlotte & Amy have decided to team up again &
exhibit at Charlotte’s new studio which is beautifully
situated with views across the Somerset Levels.
Charlotte has been inspired by her surroundings
& painted watercolours of stunning local landscapes
in a traditional style. She will also be exhibiting her
atmospheric acrylics & vibrant mosaics. Amy uses
beautiful coloured & textured glass which inspires
her to create contemporary stained glass panels
using traditional lead & copperfoil techniques.
Homemade cream teas available daily.
Contrasting geometries of the natural and
man-made worlds continue to be the basis of
my imaginative and serendipitous actions. Old and
new themes persist, often in response to visits to
historic sites at home and abroad. Imaginative
leaps across recorded time, coupled with timeless
images of the natural world, throw up surprising
outcomes expressed through painting, printmaking
and drawing. Complex pattern-making continues to
be the dominant compositional preference.

ancient sites and the art of prehistoric peoples.
Materials and processes are an important part of my
practice. Carving into plaster on board, I then use
graphite, silver-leaf, and or oil paint sometimes
I leave them natural. I am hoping the viewer will
make a link through my work, into our ancient past.

OSR Projects
Everything and more.
Shattering the idea of the artists studio as a romantic
atelier this exhibition is a collision of ideas, images,
objects and creative detritus left behind by the
transitional artist group OSR Projects. The distinction
between where one artists work stops and another
begins dissolves. Individuality and the importance
of product over process is questioned. Aspects of
the creative process that usually remain hidden are
disclosed revealing everything and more.
Open Daily - 11am to 6pm
Directions: Hermitage Street is the B3165 out of the town towards
Lyme Regis. Those coming on the A356 from the east can turn sharp
left into Hermitage Street; for those coming from the north on the
A356, Hermitage Street is straight on up the hill; those entering
Crewkerne from the direction of Chard need to go around the one way
system and follow the sign for Lyme Regis. Number 80 is on the right
hand side about 150 yards from the town centre and 75 yards beyond
The Royal Oak public house on the same side of the road. Entrance
to the studio is via the garden gate to the right of the property. The
parking bay adjacent to the house is for private use only but there is
parking available on the road both below and above the house. OS Grid

An exhibition of current work by Jenny Mellings, (a
previously Devon based artist) will include paintings,
drawings, and some stop-motion animated film
sequences. The semi-figurative mostly landscape
related images often contain photographic elements
and can perhaps be said to describe places where
imagination meets perceived reality. More recently
this has encompassed words and imagery from
the realms of virtual reality and it’s influences
on contemporary life.
Angela Charles returns for her sixth Somerset Art
Weeks exhibition in this venue. Her gestural acrylic
paintings on aluminium and board are inspired by
the South West landscape. This open studio event
follows her successful summer exhibition with
Porthminster Gallery at Westcotts Quay in St Ives,
Cornwall where her paintings showed alongside
works by Victor Pasmore. A recent graduate of De Montfort University in
Leicester, I moved to Somerset in August 2011. My
work is a fusion of ideas and styles though largely
abstract based, utilising a wide range of materials
(acrylics, watercolour, plaster, metal and photography) and techniques. I draw my inspiration from
researching modern art, current socio-economic
climate and more latterly, the village and countryside
about me.
Price range £40 to £200.

As an experimental printmaker with a ‘painterly’
style, I enjoy the excitement of the ‘accidental’
image. I often combine screen printing, etching, lino
printing, collagraphy and monoprinting. Each picture
is a unique image or part of a small edition, usually
on hand made paper. I love big skies, seas,
countryside, the human form and still life. Paintings,
collage, mixed media and sculpture also exhibited.
A wide variety of images.

Hacker Farm Pop-up Museum
Riddle: when is a shop not a shop?
Answer: when it’s a Pop-up Museum.
Yeovil no longer has a museum, so let’s create
our own. For Somerset Art Weeks. Audio-visual
artist-musicians Hacker Farm will be occupying
an empty retail-outlet in Yeovil’s Quedam pedestrian
precinct to create a transient art-space that’s part
installation, part gallery, part museum.
Working in partnership with Community Heritage
Access Centre in Yeovil, Hacker Farm will cherrypick their favourite, half-forgotten moments from
Yeovil’s cultural past, juxtaposition and re-present
them for your enjoyment and delight. They will also
create a zone where QR-codes and Edwardian
ephemera cohabit with Punk Rock posters and
tractor parts, where the Present and the Past
co-mingle and gently collide to remind us what an
amazing and robust town Yeovil is.
Open Saturday 15, 22 & 29 September 11am to
6pm, including drop in workshops. Guided Tours and
demonstrations. Permanent window display. Special

Dave Appleby Woodturning
Ann Fagan & Vera Sheaf
I always look forward to Somerset Art Weeks. It gives
me the opportunity to share with others my love of
woodturning and the excitment of discovering the
colour and grain pattern hidden in the wood. Timber
is obtained locally and I allow the wood’s natural
characteristics to influence my designs in creative
bowls, hollow forms and utility items. My workshop
and gallery will be open everyday except Mondays. Two artist friends and neighbours collaborate to
show their recent work in a small garden studio and
cottage: they share enjoyment of the rythmns of the
natural world using contrasting techniques.
Ann Fagan concentrates on printmaking and
mixed media work inspired by birds and Somerset
landscapes. Vera Sheaf’s paintings and prints are
shaped by energetic drawing and evolve from the
process of mixed media used and evocative colour.
There will be demonstrations of lino cutting and
monoprint techniques.
Delicious homemade refreshments available. Andrea Clark, Tom Clark - Stonecarver & Justin Orwin

images of local quarries.
‘You would think that living where we do, we would
be a million miles from big industry. Well, whilst
looking on google earth one day, I realized not. We
are surrounded by giantscars in the earth, created by
huge explosions and massive machinery. 100,000
tons of earth being brought to the ground at the
press of a button. I wanted to see and photograph
this hidden world that few get to see or even realize
is there.’

Words from SAW Chairman
Firstly we’d like to thank Pauline Watson for having chaired SAW for so many
years with such attentive and detailed care. It’s a complex ship to helm and she
has steered SAW with great skill and ambition. We look forward to her continued
contributions to the board.
This year is Open Studios - a chance for visitors to see the heart of Somerset’s
creativity. There is a huge variety of work out there to see and an equal variety
of people and places to visit. It’s a chance for you to explore!
“Somerset Arts Week is a much-loved and
thriving annual event and I’m proud to
support it.
It plays an invaluable role in identifying
and celebrating a huge variety of creative
activities and projects in this county, finding
emerging artists and raising awareness of
them. I urge you to go out and enjoy this
glorious week of cultural exploration.”
Kevin McCloud

A message from
Friends of SAW Committee
How dull our lives would be without the visual arts. It is therefore important that we support our
Somerset artists, as many of you kindly do.
During the past year the combined contributions from our Friends and Corporate Friends has directly
enabled SAW to offer bursaries, prizes, sponsorships and placements to graduates and emerging artists.
A career in the arts is a precarious journey and this support really does make a difference.
Seek out the hidden studios, find secret masterpieces; it’s a good time to buy
at artists’ prices too.
Being a Friend of SAW is a direct way for people who enjoy art to become involved. As a Friend you
receive invitations to Friends events, private views of the works of SAW members, a copy of the annual
Guide and regular information. As an extra thank you, Friends names are entered into a Prize Draw 4
times a year providing the chance of winning an original piece of art work kindly donated by a
SAW member.
Open Studio is an opportunity to talk to the makers, discussing techniques
and theories. Open studios, open minds.
The generous support of our Corporate Friends Scheme has been of great benefit in helping SAW fulfil its
commitment to promoting and developing the visual arts in Somerset.
Lastly take the chance to really get to know Somerset: the extraordinarily varied
landscape; the vigorous food and drink culture; the significant historic and
spiritual past. Somerset is a huge county with a complex cultural fabric.
Explore! Enjoy!
