Prior‘s Field School Godalming is the venue for AppArt’s Easter Exhibition

Months of preparation are almost complete and AppArt’s Indoor Exhibition and outside Sculpture Trail are ready for visitors. There will be nearly 500 indoor exhibits of paintings, ceramics, glass, photography and sculpture and over 100 larger sculptures outside in the Gertrude Jeykle inspired gardens. Admission is free and the exhibition and trail will be open for 2 weeks between 10 am and 4 pm.

With just under 200 artists participating there will be much to admire and there is bound to be something of interest to all art enthusiasts at affordable prices. We have been busy last summer visiting other art events and we have recruited many new artists which will ensure that the show is fresh and different from previous years. Paul Myers impressive mobile sculptures suspended from the roof will attract attention especially his sculpture ” Passing Time” whose spheres rotate revealing different colour combinations. Naomi Beever’s textile birds will entrance and amuse as she uses household objects as part of her creations. Elly Wright produces striking and vivid landscapes and Ruth Barrett-Danes collagraphs are colourful and eye catching. John Wright paints bright, dramatic and stylised pictures of South American Indians, that he recalls from his trips to that continent and they will be difficult too miss. Japanese subjects are evident in the work of Jessica Mann and Jamel Akib’s “Kimono.”

Outside animal and bird sculptures feature and the ceramic sheep and rats of Jon Barrett-Danes and the wire geese, chickens and seagulls of Geoffrey Stinton and the Octopus of Lucille Scott will attract attention and they all are exhibiting for the first time. There is so much to admire and intrigue on the sculpture trail but Teresa Martin’s “Sussex Portal” is full of hidden surprises. If you are visiting  then ask at reception for an activity sheet on this mysterious piece.
