'A Cat May Look at a Queen exhibition' Nancy Pickard

We really enjoyed visiting the exhibition 'A Cat May Look at a Queen' yesterday at New Brewery Arts in Cirencester.  The work was by Nancy Pickard who also hosted the workshop we attended.

A mixed media show by Nancy Pickard

Sat 19 Jan – Sat 16 Mar

Free admission

Proverbs and parables are retold and re-represented in this new and enthralling solo exhibition.

Nancy Pickard is an all-round artist who cannot be categorised - painter, artist, jewellery maker, sculptor, ceramicist - her work straddles the divide between craft and art. Come and explore the rich cultural images and metaphors imbedded within textural panel paintings and ceramic sculptures and be inspired by Nancy’s interpretations of modern and ancient wisdoms from around the globe.

So tempted by this piece...
'Strange Cat'
It reads:
You will always be lucky if you know how to make friends with strange cats 
(Spanish proverb)

...Just what Tim & I do where ever we go!!

A horse is worth more than riches
(Spanish proverb)

Two Heads


Another one we would have liked to take home...
'Happy is the Home with a least one cat'
(Spanish proverb)
How very true!!!  or maybe 5 cats....

I love the expressions on the faces of these ceramic pieces!

There is still time to visit the exhibition as it continues until 16th March - go & have a look if you can.  Brewery Arts is a great place to spend a little time with a fab craft gallery, working studios & great cafe too.
