I have worked at Yeovil college for many years now as a life model, and I have enjoyed watching the development of some of these pieces, especially Bridget’s ceramics. It’s always exciting to see someone else catch the ‘clay bug’…
She had many more pieces on display but they were on a windowsill with the sun behind them, so I couldn’t photograph with my tablet.
These paintings also caught my eye, I like the use of found materials, the bold colours, and the way the paint continues over the ‘frame’.
I studied for my Art Foundation, pre-degree, at Yeovil college, which is where I first discovered the joy of clay, and met my dear friend Linda Starkey, who met me for a snatched cuppa at the exhibition.
There is a growing network of artists with a Yeovil college connection, including Donna Vale, at whose gallery in Langport I will have my first solo exhibition, http://creativesomerset.com/donna/;
Joy Merron, http://www.joymerron.co.uk/joymerron.co.uk/Welcome.html, who is working with Donna on an exciting art project for the fort at Brean Down;
Nina Gronw-Lewis, who also studied at Bath Spa Uni, http://www.ninagronw-lewis.co.uk/3.html;
and more, whose names or details I may not remember off-hand… please comment if you you know them!
