Reflection Exhibition at the Eagle Gallery 14-21 June

Only two weeks and a bit to go! I'm starting to get very excited about our Reflection Exhibition at the Eagle Gallery as my floor gets covered with all the miscellaneous artworks I'm putting together. They're stacking up everywhere! Patricia and I have worked hard to make this exhibition as full of variety as possible. We both have a mixture of paintings, drawings and photography, with Patricia adding in her prints. I'll be showing off my new Owl painting (used for the poster), Lunar Owl:

This is the latest in the series of paintings of Animals with the moon. The words around the border are by me and read: 'Owl goes hunting, soundless, white, hunting moon floats over fields of night. Bright feathers, bright bow cleave the dark with light.'

As well as my usual watercolours I will have the small acrylics I've been showcasing here, both black and white and colour photography, small paintings in watercolour and in ink and wash, and painted wooden hearts, so something for everyone at every price range. I'll also have my sketchbook for people to leaf through. Here's a little preview:

From our Exhibition blurb:

"‘Reflection’ is an exhibition of work by Eagle Gallery artists Patricia Ellis and Sue Wookey. Using a range of media to capture their experiences, Patricia and Sue present both a reflection of the world seen in the mind and heart of the artist and also challenge us to reflect on the world with its tension between urban life, landscape and nature.

In 2012 Patricia and Sue exhibited together in London at the Gallery in the Crypt, St Martin in the Fields, along with four other local artists. They realised that they both had a similar approach to how they work with their cameras and what captures their eye, and the idea of a joint exhibition started to come together which has now expanded to include paintings, prints and drawings. The work includes both urban and natural environments, people and wildlife, the external world and its inner reimagining.
Opening times: Saturdays and Monday to Friday 10am – 5.30pm, Sunday 15th 11am – 4pm 
Meeting the artists: Saturday 14th June will be a ‘meet the artists’ Open Day with refreshments.
Both Patricia and I will be present at the Gallery all day Saturday 14th and 21st and Sunday 15th. From Monday – Friday I will be at the Gallery from 10am – 1.45pm and Patricia will be there from 1.45pm – 5.30pm."
