Jane Garbett: ‘Abstraction’
Saturday 5 – Sunday 27 November (weekends only)
This solo exhibition features new work from the artist’s studio…
Artist Jane Garbett has lived in Painswick for 22 years with her husband, two children and a cat. The family moved from Cheshire when the children were small and, when they started school, Jane took the opportunity to make a career change, studying fine art. She was awarded an honours degree in 2003.
On completing her degree, Jane set about establishing herself as an artist and developing a practice teaching painting and drawing, an equally important passion. The oldest part of the house was converted into a studio space and she now shares her time between teaching in the studio and making her own work.
As Jane says, “I love that so many local people visit not only to view my paintings but also to develop their own creativity. In addition to art, I enjoy photography, gardening and yoga. I also attend Quaker meeting at a beautiful meeting house next door to my studio.
“I am inspired by diverse subjects – from the patina of a pot to the clash of colours on a washing line. I am alert to details in texture, light and composition, carrying a sketch book and camera to record interesting juxtapositions. The meditative quality of painting is important and I try to convey that in the finished piece.”
This exhibition opens with a Private View on Friday 4 November, from 6pm–8pm, and continues on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month of November, from 10am–4pm.
