In­gleby Gallery, near Mel­bourne, is wel­com­ing an artist new to its charm­ing ru­ral premises for a Michael­mas ex­hi­bi­tion, from 18th Novem­ber to 4th De­cem­ber.

He­len Hal­lows, who works from her stu­dio in Long Ea­ton, is a mixed me­dia land­scape artist with a 20-year ca­reer as a free­lance fash­ion and home­ware de­signer in wo­ven and em­broi­dered tex­tiles. She de­scribes her­self as ‘in­spired by na­ture’ and her colour­ful, col­laged and stitched land­scapes evoke its var­i­ous moods and sea­sons while also telling a story about the place she’s paint­ing.

In 2017 He­len was a par­tic­i­pant in Land­scape Artist of the Year on Sky Arts. She also runs work­shops and this sum­mer launched an on­line travel sketch­books course. She will be shar­ing her tech­niques, ideas and the in­spi­ra­tion and pro­cesses be­hind her work in a ‘Meet the Artist’ event at the gallery on the af­ter­noon of Sun­day 25th Novem­ber – tea and cake will be served.

On dis­play along­side He­len’s work will be land­scape paint­ings by Steve Mclough­lin, still-life on board by Steven Tandy, jew­ellery by Caro­line Craven and a se­lec­tion of sculp­tures by Sue Ri­ley.
