New Arrivals, New Season

Jo Beer, Anemone, £350

So as one season falls behind us, we are gearing up for a new one! We have just had time to catch our breath and catch up on all those jobs we set aside during the summer, and now we are preparing for our busy Christmas season. You Christmas shoppers have been fast off the mark this year, with many gifts already bought online and in store.
We have lots of new work in now to see us through this busy spell - with some new work from 'old' artists, and work from new artists too!
We would like to welome Jo Beer, Sue Parry and Jeff (JZ) Imrie to the gallery - we are delighted to have your gorgeous new work here!

Jo Beer paints beautiful, large-scale modern botanicals, in rich oils. Her close-ups of flowers give us a fresh take on old fashioned chintz - like a vamped up version of Willaim Morris - take a look and see what you think (top).

Sue Parry has deliverd us a most beautiful collection of glass work - little tealight holders, glass hearts, and stunning glass sculptures and bowls. Sue uses the most unusual techniques - and you can read all about her inspiration on her page on our website by clicking on the photo to the left.

Sue Parry, Three Seasons, £270

Jeff Imrie (with the comical nickname of JZ!) has made an unusual bottle holder for us - creative and functional! It really differs from the usual home-store style wine rack, and has been a bit of a talking point in the gallery! He has also created a stunning 'Tree of Life' sculpture for us as well - something that I think needs to be seen in the flesh to appreciate it's 'wow' factor.

There are so many fabulous new things in the gallery - it would take an age to tell you about all of them - so why not come along to visit us on South Street, St Andrews, or stop by our online store.
