Art, na­ture and cake – what more could you want?

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

COLLEGE Lake Artists, an ex­cit­ing, dis­parate group of artists and mak­ers will once again be ex­hibit­ing at College Lake Na­ture Re­serve dur­ing Bucks Open Stu­dios.

And this years there will be even more tal­ented people, who are some of the area’s lead­ing spe­cial­ists in their fields, ex­hibit­ing be­tween June 10 and 25.

Niki Bell’s paint­ing and print mak­ing is of Bri­tish wildlife and farm an­i­mals, which are strong and have an el­e­ment of wild­ness about them.

Kerry Newth is an award-winning Con­tem­po­rary jew­eller whose work is in­flu­enced by the nat­u­ral world, growth pat­terns, seed for­ma­tions but es­pe­cially the sea.

Linda Cav­ill’s paint­ings and ce­ram­ics are in­spired by her na­tive Scot­land and her trav­els fur­ther afield.

Nigel Thomp­son’s beau­ti­ful stoneware table­ware has great depth of colour in blues and bronzes, and Shirley Jones is mad about tex­tiles, work­ing with fine fabrics such as silk and lace, in­clud­ing lots of em­bel­lish­ment with em­broi­dery or bead­ing by hand.

Louisa Sto­bbs’s pas­sion for out­door pho­tog­ra­phy is in the art she sees all around, her year-round love for colour, light and tex­ture show in ev­ery pic­ture.

Hazel God­frey is a con­tem­po­rary wil­low weaver, in­spired by the beauty and ver­sa­til­ity of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als. Jenny Hoole makes beau­ti­ful in­di­vid­ual fused glass dishes, jew­ellery, coast­ers, stu­dio glass and wall art, her in­spi­ra­tion com­ing from her fash­ion in­dus­try back­ground.

Bucks Open Stu­dios is the largest vis­ual arts event in the coun­try; more than 500 artists and mak­ers open their stu­dios and run free ex­hi­bi­tions and events for the pub­lic to visit, in over 200 dif­fer­ent venues.

College Lake Artists are open through­out Bucks Open Stu­dios from Satur­day 10 to Sun­day 25 June, 10am to 4pm.

Don’t miss this op­por­tu­nity to visit College Lake, soak up the won­der­ful at­mos­phere of the na­ture re­serve, en­joy first class artists and mak­ers, and round off your visit with some de­li­cious home made cake at the ex­cel­lent Bad­ger Cafe.
