Hunter Gallery: two summer exhibitions
Two outstanding exhibitions this summer celebrate the relocation of The Hunter Gallery to a new home in Bury St Edmunds
Plus Artbeat galleries round-up
After more than 15 years in Long Melford, The Hunter Gallery has moved to Bury St Edmunds, to a beautiful spot between the Abbey Gardens and St Edmundsbury Cathedral.
The gallery was the first in Long Melford when it opened in 2001. Since that time it has established a solid reputation for the high quality of original work it exhibits and sells, and a loyal following from customers who appreciate art in all its various styles and forms.
The Hunter Gallery represents well known local artists from Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex, alongside some of the UK’s most respected creators of paintings, sculpture and furniture. It specialises in art for the home, with something to suit all tastes and budgets – contemporary fine art in an exciting and eclectic range of styles that range from figurative to semi-abstract in different media.
Professional artists are carefully selected, although the gallery also considers applications from young, upcoming artists with potential. This summer, The Hunter Gallery is staging shows for two of its most popular artists. From July 7-22 it will show the work of Edward Noott RBSA, and from August 11-26 Suffolk artist Alexander Debenham will exhibit with sculptor John Brown.
EDWARD NOOTT SOLO EXHIBITION JULY 7-22
Edward Noott RBSA was born in 1965 in Worcester. He studied at Cheltenham College of Art, Trent University and the State University of New York.
Noott’s work has been displayed in many exhibitions in England and the USA. Awards include the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists Open Exhibition Best Painting and the Royal West of England Academy Purchase Prize. He is a full member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.
Noott has exhibited with The Hunter Gallery for 12 years and has always been one of its most collected artists.
His paintings are a celebration of places close to many hearts, with his delightful reminiscences of summers spent in England, Italy or France.
His work includes lovely English country garden depictions, rolling landscapes and river scenes, stunning sunsets in Venice, Paris, New York or London.
The beautiful dappled light only ever seen in the south of France, and that he masters so well, is particularly well depicted, and his impressionistic style is sometimes reminiscent of Monet, and even of Turner. It’s no surprise to know that his paintings are collected all over the world.
Edward Noott will be present throughout the day at the opening of the exhibition on Saturday July 7. N
