Newbury Art Collective - Showcase Exhibition

Sunday 2nd Oct 2022 — Sunday 6th Nov 2022, Runway Gallery, The Base

We are thrilled to welcome the Newbury Art Collective to our Runway Gallery this October.

Displaying the work of five local artists: Isabel Carmona, Benjamin Honisett, Emma Green, Laura Kirkpatrick and Bruce Bamber, this free collective exhibition brings local talent to the fore. From storytelling through sketch, bold printmaking to multi-media paintings inspired by the countryside around us, this exhibition showcases a breadth of disciplines and creativity from artists local to the Newbury area. This is a free exhibition and all of the artwork is for sale.

Newbury Art Collective was established in 2016 by four local artists in Berkshire. Their aim is showcasing their work together and invite other artists of various disciplines to exhibit with them.

We hope you enjoy the variety of artwork on offer.

About the artists

Isabel Carmona
Isabel is an avid sketcher in a style full of colour. She paints in watercolours and handprints in linocut and collagraph primarily. When she stops to sketch, stories develop which memories are transformed into print and painted artworks.

Benjamin Honisett

Ben is a multi-media artist with a graphic design background. He experiments freely into a variety of mediums that include graphic landscapes, abstract street photography digital painting and mixed media compositions.

Emma Green
Emma is a printmaker and mixed-media artist, inspired by the British countryside. The natural world provides Emma with great inspiration with landscape, plants and birds forming the core of her imagery. Her trading name is Hawksbury Print.

Laura Kirkpatrick

Laura is inspired by the Wiltshire landscape and the environment around her. Her paintings explore composition and push against the obvious. Each painting is a journey, you may find figurative elements, like butterfly wings painted in watercolour then collaged into the abstracted fields of the paintings.

Bruce Bamber

I go to beautiful open countryside when the weather is amenable. I then fill a rectangular space with shapes and colours to produce something that might induce, in an onlooker, a range of reactions that include something along a scale from mild disinterest to wild ecstasy. Sometimes I can trade this for money. It’s not a bad job.
