Art and gardens

A wide range of work by new, emerging and established artists from Sussex and the south east of England is on show this summer at the Zimmer Stewart Gallery in Arundel (until August 6).

The mixed Summer of Art Exhibition will show paintings by Katharine Le Hardy, Nick Bodimeade, Phil Tyler; original prints by Gary Goodman, Patrick Caulfield, Terry Frost; ceramics by John Leach, Karen Bunting, Nigel Lambert; and sculpture by Giles Penny and Christopher Marvell.

James Stewart, Gallery director, said: “It will be a wonderful mix of work and mediums to suit all tastes and budgets. As work sells it will be replaced by new pieces so as the show continues it will evolve and change, so visitors are encouraged to come back again and again during the eight weeks to see different work.

“We will open up the garden as in previous years to show garden sculpture, and visitors are encouraged to see the landscaping by Midhurst garden designer Annie Guilfoyle. Some people return each year just to see how the garden has grown and developed.

“The solo shows we have for much of the year give visitors to the gallery a chance to see one artist’s work in depth, but for many people the mixed group shows are more exciting because of the variety of work that can be seen from a number of artists at the same time. It is an opportunity to see how different pieces work alongside each other.”
