Summer Exhibition – Still On!

The i2 Art Summer Exhibition is still going strong with work from many wonderful Artists both new to i2Art and regular contributors.

Two i2Art favourites whom we have asked to return once more to i2Art as part of the Summer Exhibition are Amanda Sheldrake and Amanda Clark.

Both Artists create paintings that are both magical and mystical but in very different ways.

Amanda Sheldrake

Amanda Sheldrake has been creating works of art for many years, selling to collectors worldwide. She is also commissioned to do mural designs, window painting and portrait painting.

“I have always been inspired by travelling to different environments and particularly by the intense joys of nature which I respond to with my vibrant use of colour.”

Amanda likes to explore many different media and uses them to inform the piece of art I am inspired to create. The essence of the enjoyment in my work is displayed in the diversity of subject, design and colour.

“I would simply like to share with you my love for life through my creativity”

Amanda Clark

Amanda’s paintings are a rich tapestry of colour, fairytale, myth and legend. Inspired by the magical and mysterious tales she has been reading and studying since childhood and the enchanting English countryside where she has lived all her life.

The colours she uses in each piece of art portrays the mood and essence of a tale that has been told through the centuries, but with a contemporary twist. Each piece of Amanda’s art is painted in jewel like colours with acrylic paint, adding layers, glazes and fine detail and sometimes mica for iridescent texture.

For very special commissions, Amanda makes her own paints using egg tempura and natural pigments.

Fairytale – Amanda Sheldrake

Amanda Sheldrake is currently featured in our ‘Fairytale’ Exhibition, why don’t you pop in and see the lovely artworks for yourself?

“Changing  times, wind blows, untangle the threads of  a lost soul , fly free my friend. Dream on a space in time for my soul radiates the love within. I am walking through the forest of dreams and if by magic everything has been transformed into rainbows of colour…”

Fairytale Private View

Thank you to all of those that attended our ‘Fairytale’ Private View last saturday despite the cold weather!

We were very lucky to have many of the artists in attendance. We took some pictures for those of you that couldn’t make it…

We had wine for our guests! Pictured are three beautiful paintings by illustrative artist Amanda Clark, ‘Winter’s Dream’, ‘Dawn of a Dream’ and ‘East of the Sun, West of the Moon’.

The lovely Amanda Clark pictured next to ‘Queen and Blue Crow’(top) and ‘Bird Lady’ (middle). Also shown is ‘My Eye Glanced Toward My Opponent – I Raised My Pistol And Fired’ by book sculpter Justin Rowe (bottom).

Equally lovely sculpter Sue Law also joined us, pictured here with her fantastic sculpture ‘Glass Slipper I’

‘Glass Slipper I’ is the perfect sculpture to feature in our window, especially when it catches the rays of the settting sun!

Thaxted born artist Amber Caspian with a penchant for the mystical joined us but was a bit camera shy! Pictured are ‘At Home – Baba Yaga’ (left) and ‘In The Hood – Red Riding Hood’ (right). Also pictured are ‘The Dance’ (centre) by Amanda Clark and A Colin Chetwood ‘Golden Lily Lamp’.

Unfortunately mixed media artist and i2 favourite Neil Payne couldn’t join us for the Private View but we still got to admire his beautiful work. ‘Tabula’, above, is made up of the spines of books. A fantastic addition to our ‘Fairytale’ exhibition.

It was wonderful that book sculpter Justin Rowe could make it to the Private View. Pictured here with ‘Forest of Dreams’ (print) and Still No Soul Appeared Upon Her Decks’ (sculpture).

Sadly painter and i2 regular Helena-A. Reut couldn’t be with us but her paintings were a hit! Above are ‘Laundry’, ‘The Final Act’ and ‘Harelquin’.

The wonderful mixed media painter Amanda Sheldrake also joined us, pictured here with the beautiful ‘Changing Times’.

Another artist that sadly couldn’t make the preview was illustrative painter Celeste Copping but her paintings got a lot of attention. Pictured above are ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and Goldilocks’.
