AppArt’s annual Easter Art Exhibition & Sculpture Trail will take place again at Priorsfield School, Godalming. AppArt is a community-wide art event which attracts visitors from all over the Home Counties to see one of the most varied collections of paintings, sculpture and other art media in the South East of England.
Internationally renowned sculptor Philip Jackson is openly AppArt’s Easter Exhibition and Sculpture Trail and he is also taking part. We delighted that we will be able to show his Venetian-Inspired work.
The Dorking area is full of talented artists and their work will feature strongly at AppArt’s exhibition. Adam Aaronson glass studio in Horsley is establishing an international reputation. His glass sculptures were the main feature of the artwork created for Parliaments “New Dawn” His unique hand-blown glass will be well-represented at AppArt. Helen Pittick specialises in equine sculptures and “Back on Her Feet” was presented to the Queen at Surrey University last year.
Mark Goodchild fabricates unusual sculptures from scrap metal and his large globe “Stratford International” is a good example of his work. Terri Smart produces colourful ceramics of plants and animals and “First Bite Too” illustrates this. Clare Pavey produces strong realistic sculptures of animals and her study of “Rowen” captures the character of the dog. Stephanie Wright’s swirling and vivid coloured ceramics are sure to attract attention such as “Tangerine Tango.”
Frances Jordan paints in various media and this year her mixed media is certain to make a “Splash!” Tessa Pearson’s mono block prints focus on plants and “Long Golden Teasel” reveals the quality of her work.
The Exhibition & Sculpture Trail will be open every day from Saturday 1st April to Easter Sunday 16th between 10am to 4pm. Admission is free and visitors will be able to view about 500 indoor exhibits and also explore the Gertrude Jekyll inspired gardens and see over 100 large sculptures in a tranquil and picturesque setting.
