-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Starting Thursday 27th October 2016: 'A Baker's Dozen'! 

Thirteen ceramicists/potters/clay artists will take over the middle floor of the Mill for this ceramic showcase throughout the festive build up:

Brenda Wright, Elizabeth Maynard, Linda Bulleyment, Peter Hawes, Rene Cryer, Linda Erliz, Brian Anson, Azu Fletcher, Rupert Blamire, Gus Wright, Jack Laverick, Andrew Bull, Lee Steele.

 We are officially potty for ceramics this year! And clearly so are many of our customers following on from the popularity of 'The Great British Throw Down' on TV. We thought it would be exciting to end this year with a focus on 'all things clay' and so we've invited ceramic artists at the mill to deck out the shelves of the middle floor with goodies. Yes it will be a feast for the eyes, with some new names on board too to add to the final mix. We hope visitors to the mill will find the perfect unique and special ceramics for wrapping up this Christmas and perhaps a treat to keep too!

We've enjoyed exhibiting work from both sides of the Pennines over the last 9 years and feel it's time to put together a 'joint' exhibition to showcase the fact. 

The opportunity for customers to compare the two will no doubt provoke an enthusiastic response but should also generate special interest from collectors of Northern Artists.

Christmas Exhibition November 13th to December 31st
A solo show of paintings by Ray Mutimer called

 

 'A Little Imagination'

 

                


Ray lives in Knaresborough and is well known for his numerous Postman Pat books and annuals. But he has also worked on an impressively wide range of art and design projects in a career as a professional freelance illustrator, that has spanned 30 wonderfully productive years.
 

After training as a secondary school teacher Ray ended up as Head of Art and Craft at St.Aidan's CoE High School in Harrogate.

Whilst teaching during the day, he developed his semi abstract paintings at night and gradually moved from landscape to more figurative work. Two paintings were featured in the Royal Watercolour Society's Contemporary British Watercolours exhibition and many solo shows followed throughout the sixties and seventies.
 

Ray's first cartoon illustrations appeared in the Times Educational Supplement and not surprisingly were humorous reflections on teaching. Subsequent educational commissions were undertaken on behalf of industry and Ray's illustrated Time Charts (50 or so pictures blended into a montage which depicts the history of an industry or institution) were created for the likes of the Inland Revenue, British Steel, British Aerospace, The Stock Exchange and the Royal Mint.

However, having a young son meant discovering children's' story books with illustrations, revealing to Ray an inspirational world of colour, inventiveness, composition and drawing - everything and more of what he aimed for in his art and more if you include the magic of his story telling imagination. 
 

Ray became a freelance illustrator, limiting his teaching to recreational painting classes and demonstrations and in 1989 Ray started his first series of 12 Postman Pat picture books. During the nineties he drew eight whole annuals including all the stories, picture strips and activity pages. His work also contributed largely to the Postman Pat Weekly children's' picture strip magazine.

Over the years, Ray's illustrations have been used by many publishers and can be seen in an impressively wide range of character-led stories, from Rupert, Noddy and the Starhill Ponies through to classic nursery rhymes brought to life. 
 

Ray will be at the preview, with a portfolio of work covering his years as a professional freelance illustrator.

     Peter Stanaway, Austerlands Original Painting

Peter Stanaway returns to the Mill with more sharp geometric images. This year he has produced a series of oil paintings in response to and depicting his love of folk music. A keen folk musician himself, he has produced lively scenes evoking good vibes amongst musician friends.

 Blackpool by kevin Haynes      

 Kevin Haynes paints from his chidhood memories of life in the mill towns. His nostalgic images tell a story, often very amusing, as seen through the wide eyes of a small boy growing up in Northern England.

   Blue Hills by Steve Capper 

Steve Capper is inspired by the hills and valleys of the Pennines where he lives and works. His use of strong vibrant colour and stylish shaping produces fascinating landscapes with almost luminous qualities. He often focuses on trees and foliage as his subject and one can usually find a landmark or mill building within his flowing landscapes.

 

    sculpture by Jean Fenton

 For sculpture this year Jean Fenton will show her latest figurative work in terracotta which uses line and form to find underlying emotions and feelings. Her dance figures aim to trap a burst of energy and strength in a frozen moment.

 








FEVA SHOW AUGUST 2009

     

 

  

Richard Snowden is well known in these parts for his relentless productive and creative energy and he is now seeing the fruits of his labours flourishing.  By day the challenge is to harness mother nature on his working farm and by night it is to release his abundant creativity. The result is a rich body of work imbued with a joie de vivre which lights up even the darkest walls. The subjects are luscious and diverse, but each work is a performance, expressing the artist's empathy for nature in all its wonderful forms; dramatic landscapes one day and seductive femmes fatales the next!

    

 

Peter Stanaway returns to the Mill with more sharp geometric images. This year he has produced a series of oil paintings in response to and depicting his love of folk music. A keen folk musician himself, he has produced lively scenes evoking good vibes amongst musician friends.

 

     

Rosemary Abraham's floral paintings create intense visual statements. The surfaces are enriched with thick gesso allowing colour saturation which is often further enhanced by metal foils and pearlescent pigments producing heady floral pieces that are attracting the bees!

  

      

 

 

John Sibson is well known across Yorkshire and a respected artist now concentrating solely on his painting after a career in the quarrying industry. He likes to paint in watercolour, oil and acrylic with a pleasing rhythmical style  that evolves from his understanding of the complex vibrations in nature within landscapes and a precise eye for technical details in his industrial images.

 For sculpture this year Jean Fenton will show her latest figurative work in terracotta which uses line and form to find underlying emotions and feelings. Her dance figures aim to trap a burst of energy and strength in a frozen moment.

 

Mandy Long also exhibits. Her raku sculptures aspire to capture the extraordinary passion and electricity, strength and grace of athletes and dancers in motion. Mandy is fascinated by the relationships in performance between impetus, power, strength and the point of balance about which motion hinges often defines an iconic pose for Mandy to recreate.   

 

'Out of Africa'   ~      May 23rd- June 21st 09     

Tony Hill presents an exciting collection offrican Tribal Arts for s, including masks, figures & furniture. Knaborough artist, Julie Cope, will help to set the scene at the Mill with original paintings from her African wildlife collection.

HAPPY 200TH BIRTHDAY TO THE OLD FLAX MILL!

We are focusing on the history of this charming old linen mill throughout this year to mark its special birthday. The mills and especially the linen trade are the focus of our attentions. We are building up to the finale during Knaresborough's FEVA Festival starting August 8th when we will launch the Summer Show 'A Journey thro' Time'. This exhibition will feature a rich tapestry of work by five very different artists who seek to capture the spirit of the mills and moors they are so familiar with. Further details to follow shortly.

Lockgates by Pater Stanaway Lock Gates by Peter Stanaway

LINEN PRODUCTS

We have introduced many new items this Spring with the linen connection, we think they are very special in their own right but we can feel a real sense of purpose and nostalgia to bring linen back into the mill! We have Gail Kelly's linocuts hand printed onto Irish Linen. These framed pictures of her enchanting garden series and Celtic tree designs will look attractive in almost any setting.

We have also introduced a beautiful range of handmade high quality vintage linen home accessories and fashion wear made by Yorkshire company 'Angel Linens' using vintage linen fabrics.

We are pleased to exhibit very special silver jewellery by Portcullis Jewels. The designs for the brooches and bangles take inspiration from Viking designs such as those found in the Goldsboro' hoard of Viking treasure just outside Knaresborough. Linen threads have been woven into one forged silver bangle which has been especially designed for the Mill.

And a very big well-done to all who took part - there were plenty of willing lantern makers, one as young as three and a little angel!
