Mid Summer

Mid Summer

Exhibition embracing summer in all its contexts

New paintings by Jo Oakley and David J. Porter
New ceramics by James & Tilla Waters and Lara Scobie

We are delighted to add five new artists to the growing stable of British artworks represented by The Stratford Gallery.  
In this exhibition we explore the meaning of Summer with exquisite paintings by Jo Oakley, drawing on how our natural world mingles with our sense of place, objects in our lives and our environment.
David J Porter delights with his considered compositions of landscape, abstracted with a concern for the emotional, nostalgic tone of summer.  
Lara Scobie works with The Gallery for the first time with her amazingly fine ceramic vessels, expressing a love for form, pattern and colour, visually tempting the interaction of our senses.  
James & Tilla Waters grace Stratford with their reputation for beautifully crafted and decorated ceramic works.  A husband and wife team sharing making and decoration in their Welsh studio, James and Tilla have a huge international reputation for their ceramic craft.
