Saturday 11th June boasts a variety of exhibitions around the village.
Local artists will be opening their garden gates for you to come and peruse their latest creations, one of which includes a group of artists creating mosaics along the fantasy theme of ‘Toads and Diamonds’.
The chapel offers a wide variety of paintings and sculpture, including some from the local children, amateur artists along with fine painters (just as a truly accessible exhibition should be!)
We’d like you to explore the village – village folk will have their own garden exhibitions in the form of ‘Garden Art’ in our Folk and Fantasy theme.
Perhaps you could follow the specially created landmarks to find the magical ‘Fairy Trail’ – be careful as you tread!
ARTISTS: We have lots of quirky spaces for you to exhibit in, should you wish to join in! Please do get hold of us through the contact page.
A taste of what’s on offer…
Simon is a Middlezoy Artist, featuring many pieces you may spot around the village (and a focal point in our very own Arts Festival Logo!)
In Simon’s words… “I’ve been an artist all my life, it’s just part of who I am. I paint what I see around me, landscapes, people, places … you name it, I paint it. I mainly work in oils on canvas but also paint water colours and produce sketches.”
“Living on the Somerset Levels, I am surrounded by beautiful countryside. I like to get out walking with my faithful black labrador and take my easel or camera to capture the images I see around me. I am always looking for that perfect light that illuminates the landscape in an unusual way.”
Simon will be exhibiting in Middlezoy Chapel on Saturday.
Pam Wells creates Perfectly Amazing Mosaics. Pam was born in Greenwich, South East London. She has a background in teaching and has always been creative.
Pam and her group of creative students have been working for some time on an exciting project for the Arts Festival… the theme being ‘Toads and Diamonds’. We are all captivated to explore this fantastical study using mosaics and ceramics.
Pam studio will be open on Saturday afternoon and there will be a competition for visitors, no fee to take part – with a prize for the winner!
Have you ever looked at a pile of old tools, an old bicycle old car parts or even a broken vacuum cleaner and thought there’s got to be something this could be used for rather than throw it away?
Well that’s what Nick does, He takes those old tools and any other scrap metal items that would otherwise be thrown away or sold for scrap metal and breathe new life into them by creating one off sculptures, From sculptures as small as your hand to as big as a horse the only limitation is your imaginations.
