We were so pleased with how many lovely people turned up to our exhibition private viewing on Thursday, it was great fun. Fantastic to see our little gallery bursting at the seams with people wanting to look (and buy) the works of art that we had on display.

Those that came enjoyed a drink or two, some nibbles and had time to talk to the artists themselves; Jude Freeman and Chris Court.

I will leave you with some pictures of the evening to give you a taste of the exhibition. If you weren’t able to make the private viewing please call in as the exhibition continues until 27th August 2015.

Thanks again to all of you that came, maybe we will soon need an extension!

As a gallery as well as a framing business we relish working with artists to display their works and bring these beautiful pieces to people in the local area. When we saw some prints by Kirsten Jones we were hooked and we are delighted to be displaying some of her work here in our gallery.

Limited Edition Prints on sale at The Bracken Gallery now.

Kirsten was born in Hartlepool but grew up in the stunning surroundings of the Channel Islands, she now displays her works in Berkshire where her studio; Barn Acre Gallery is set on a quiet area of the river Thames. Kirsten also spends lot’s of time visiting Devon and Cornwall which is why we have been fortunate enough to meet her.

Kirsten has travelled all over the world but takes much inspiration from clothing, collections of objects and natural forms. Her work is created on paper using washes of acrylic and watercolour paint. Each of the Limited Edition Prints is hand worked and signed, they come with a short story which describes some of the background about how the ideas for the piece were conceived. The images are printed on Hahnemuhle Fine Art paper and are created using UV stable pigment inks.

For us, it is the background story supplied with the prints that make them a fabulous gift idea, the image below is one of the pieces that Kirsten has created in a series of different shoes, now wouldn’t this make a lovely special present for Mothers Day?

Limited Edition Prints - one of the shoes in the collection.
