Artist Peter Horrocks uses a range of natural earth pigments, clays, graphite, slate, marble and charcoal dust in his practice. He has mined ochres from 300 feet down the iron ore mine at the Clearwell Caves in the Forest of Dean. As a happy synergy for this exhibition photographer Paul Harris has captured some images of free miners from the same caves in the Forest of Dean and potter Andrew John Richards series of work is entitled Textures of the Earth.

We were delighted to welcome free miner, Neil Jones to our opening night last week - Neil is the subject of one of Paul's  portrait images in the show.

As a reminder photographer Paul Harris will be in the gallery to talk about his photography project on 
Saturday, 25th September
Midday - 2.30pm

Do come along to chat to him if you are able.

Found in the Earth is on until 9th October
We are open Tuesday - Saturday, 10am - 4.30pm
 

Andrew John Richards work is entitled 'Textures from the Earth.' They are pieces which reflect the landscape of the Welsh mountains and coastline. Andrew begins with thrown or hand built clay forms and then adds clastic sedimentary stones and oxides by careful manipulation and alterations of the surface. 

Stone carver, Lottie O'Leary's 'The Lost Words' is a beautiful addition to our window. This piece was carved for an exhibition at The Lettering Arts Trust in Snape Maltings in 2019. The piece was inspired by the Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris book, The Lost Words, highlighting those words that are disappearing from children's lives.   

...and coming up in mid October:
Found Gallery offers Collectorplan, the scheme run by Arts Council Wales that enables private individuals to borrow money (interest free) to assist with the purchasing of works of art.
