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.
