2 July 2022 - 17 July 2022


Peter's style is built around the exploration of light and its effect on subjects within his landscape paintings. Wileman's style is bold and vigorous, both in the use of contrasting colour and handling of the paint. Seeking to convey an emotional response to the drama of a sunset, or the mood of brewing stormclouds, Wileman's finished products are the manifestation of real human encounters with nature.The results are vibrant, colourful depictions of British landscapes that are a blend of realism, atmosphere and abstraction.

"My painting is all about light and how we see it and react to it. It is what drives artists on. It is why most of us paint. Yet light can be as elusive as a wisp of smoke as we try to capture it in all its many moods."

Emma Williams

23 July 2022 - 7 August 2022


Born in 1968, Emma trained in textile design at Huddersfield University. Between 1994 and 1998, she worked as a freelance textile designer and artist.

Colour and decorative qualities combine with flattened perspective to play an essential role in creating rich and complex pictures with a distinctive style.

"My paintings are textured and always vivid - evoking memories of a time space and mood. Many visits to Cornwall have been a constant source of inspiration, influencing my particular approach to interiors and landscapes."

‘Emma's time spent studying printed textile design at Huddersfield University is strongly evident in her paintings, using flat perspective and bold colour with dramatic effect.

The still life style shines out strong, vibrant and glorious, bringing a contemporary vision to a grand old artistic tradition. Demand for her work is steadily increasing and Emma Williams is now one of the most sought after painters working in Britain’ - The Knutsford Times

Helen Tabor

13 August 2022 - 28 August 2022


Helen Tabor has lived in the Scottish Borders for the past fifteen years with her partner and three children. Her paintings are very much inspired by her surroundings, in particular the rural Scottish Borders countryside, and the soft seascapes of south west Scotland.

Whilst the figure paintings are more defined and linear, her landscapes are expressive and abstract but both styles hold something more enigmatic – a vagueness perhaps which takes you into the world of imagination.

Born in Middlesex in 1960, Helen Tabor graduated with English and History at the University of York in 1981. A self-taught artist, Tabor drew her inspiration from Chagall and Picasso. Since 1986, she has successfully exhibited in numerous galleries both North and South of the border, including RSA and SAAC Royal Academy in Edinburgh. Helen’s work can be found in private collections both here and abroad.

Max Tannahill

29 October 2022 - 12 November 2022


Max Tannahill is from Bangor, County Down, in the north of Ireland. He travelled to Australia where exposure to the work of aboriginal artists left a deep impression. Max returned to England in 1989 to study bookbinding for two years and it was during this period, living in the Essex coastal village of Wivenhoe, that he started carving his unique fish from the plentiful supply of driftwood gleaned from the shoreline and estuaries nearby.

Max's sculptures vary enormously in size from small individual flat fish to 4 metre long installations of shoals of fish swimming alongside boat remnants. Lead and copper are sometimes incorporated into the fish he creates. His world is essentially simple; imagined, and governed to a large extent by the constraints of the material.
