The Garage Gallery, 152 High Street, Aldeburgh, IP15 5AQ



Mister Herbert set for his holidays in Aldeburgh!

Sculptor Sally Dunham, whose work is displayed nationwide, will be returning to Aldeburgh with her latest collection of 'A moment with Mister Herbert' sculptures for one week in July. Sally will be taking over the Garage Gallery at 152 High Street Aldeburgh for a solo exhibition from the 14th - 19th July.
Sally, a sculptor for the last 19 years, first launched Mister Herbert in 2010. The collection sees this simplified human character, with an intriguing long face, capture everyday sayings and situations in a lighthearted way to make you smile. Each ceramic sculpture is individually handcrafted at her studio in Soham and includes free standing sculptures and wall mounted designs in a range of sizes, often incorporating quotations within the design.

Sally also creates realistic, yet contemporary human and animal figures each pieced together hollow with small pieces of clay, almost like a patchwork quilt, giving the pieces a lively and tactile surface.

Sally will be at the Garage Gallery (found in the passageway between the High street and the sea) each day from 11am -5pm and also an opening late night on Friday 14th July from 6-8pm. Sally will be more than happy to talk to you about her work and ideas and discuss any commissions ideas with you.

Saturday 15 July to Monday 28 August
Suffolk Craft Society Summer Exhibition
10-5 daily
Peter Pears Gallery, 152 High Street, Aldeburgh, IP15 5AQ
The Suffolk Craft Society is back this summer for their annual exhibition at the Peter Pears Gallery, just off the promenade and High Street in Aldeburgh.

Since the 1970£s the Suffolk Craft Society's Summer Exhibition has been an established part of the summer art scene in Aldeburgh, based at the Peter Pears Gallery on the High Street during July and August. They have recently selected 3 new members to join their ambitious and industrious society of over 100 designer makers, most of whom will be showing their latest work in the Summer Exhibition.

Almost all work in the exhibition will be for sale and buyers can choose from an unequaled range of beautiful designer crafts. There will be something for all budgets with prices varying from just a few pounds for small pieces of pottery, handmade bags and textiles for the home, to larger sums for precious jewellery, glass work, framed prints, sculpture, furniture and woven wall hangings.

The exhibition is manned by the Society's members, so you can enjoy the benefits of buying locally made designer crafts by speaking to the makers about their working processes or perhaps even commission a unique creation.

Visitors will also have the chance to take part in the grand prize draw. Members of the Suffolk Craft Society have donated their beautiful crafts as raffle prizes and you can buy a ticket for a chance to win.

Many people, locals and visitors alike, come back year after year, so come and find out what you have been missing! The exhibition will be open daily, 10am - 5pm, until bank holiday Monday, 28th August and admission is free again this year.

Monday 17 July to Monday 28 August
Seaview Summer Show 2017
10am - 5pm Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and August Bank Holiday Monday
Seaview Gallery, The Street, Walberswick, IP18 6UB
The coasts of Suffolk and Norfolk have attracted artists to its open skies and shorelines since the late eighteenth century when British gentlemen, unable to take the Grand Tour across Europe during the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars often travelled closer to home instead.

Following this long tradition, leading British artists J.M.W Turner (1775-1851), John Constable (1776-1837), Philip Wilson Steer (1860-1942), Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928), Paul Nash (1889-1946) Stanley Spencer (1891-1959), John Piper (1903-1992), Ivon Hitchens (1893-1979) Edward Seago (1910-1974) and Mary Potter (1900-1981 all captured views there. Moreover, while on a group holiday in Happisburgh, Norfolk in 1931, sculptors Henry Moore (1898-1986) and Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) scoured the beaches together for pebbles to carve £ and so began the first versions of the modernist masterpieces for which they were to become so well known.

Today, contemporary artists continue to be moved by the scenes they find there, and at this year's annual summer show seven lauded, local artists will exhibit works inspired by the Suffolk and Norfolk shores. Laurence Edwards acclaimed figurative sculptures will be displayed alongside evocative paintings by Kate Giles, Helen Napper, Andrew Pringle and Tim Fargher, who will also include bronze sculptures in the exhibition. Karen Downing's minimalist, hand-thrown white porcelain tableware will join them and for the first time, Seaview Gallery presents hand-made jewellery by Fiona Petheram, who combs the beaches of Suffolk, The Isles of Scilly and Spain for sea glass to adorn her elegant earrings, necklaces and earrings.
