Exhibition

Jemma Corbin: Colour Field

Wednesday 15 January – Saturday 4 April

In the Mezzanine Gallery

Contemporary textiles and a history of natural colour.

 

Colour Field showcases the work of textile artist Jemma Corbin, and explores how plants are central to her artistic practice. It also looks at the wider use, cultivation and movement of natural dyes throughout history.

 

Jemma’s collection of minimalist quilts and cushions re-imagines the work of a group of mid-20th Century abstract painters whose bold, colourful work would become known as ‘Colour Field’ painting.

 

Using pigments sourced from field and forest, natural fibres and traditional craft processes, Jemma seeks to blur the line between fine art and function; her work is sumptuous, tactile and designed to be used and loved.

Exhibition

Quentin Blake Book Covers

Saturday 11 April – Saturday 12 July

Quentin Blake Book Covers

In the Mezzanine Gallery

As the UK’s best-loved illustrator, Quentin Blake has been drawing for books for over 50 years. While he is best known for his illustrations for children’s books, his career began with covers for magazines and adult fiction.

In this new touring exhibition from House of Illustration, Blake shares 30 of his favourite covers from three celebrated publishers – a selection of his distinctive covers for Penguin paperbacks, his work for premium hardbacks for The Folio Society, and his illustrated covers for children’s books published by Jonathan Cape. Through these eclectic and punchy designs Blake demonstrates how his inimitable style always comes through, even when adapting to the different subject matters and audiences.

Open Exhibition

Announcing our Open Exhibition 2020: Water

The importance of water in Havant’s heritage is well known and documented. The springs, streams and aquifers led to the initial settlements and later industries in our area.  In recognition of this, we are asking local artists to celebrate Water in our 2020 Open.

 

Artists working in any medium can enter up to three works for consideration by an expert panel, with a prize of £100 awarded to one piece during the exhibition.

 

The exhibition will be on display in The Spring’s Sadler Gallery in the summer.

 

Each entry costs £15 (for up to three pieces) and must be submitted by Friday 29th May 2020 at 5pm.
