Open since July this year, Cath Ray Gallery and Studios already has a programme of exciting exhibitions, classes, courses and after-school clubs, which will showcase some of the best talent in the region for visitors to view, purchase, and be inspired by.
The current exhibition, ‘Peaceful Moments’, shows work by Pam Miller, an artist based in Beeston, Nottingham. It includes large-scale landscapes and more abstract pieces, some of which have been exhibited all over the world including Midland and Dallas (Texas) in the United States, Vienna in Austria, Slovenia, London, and Gothenburg in Sweden.
Cath fell in love with Pam’s work early in her career when she helped to stage Pam’s solo shows at The Priory Gatehouse in Worksop and then again at The Harley Gallery in Welbeck. Since then, Pam has studied for an MA in Fine Art at Bretton Hall in West Yorkshire and was later awarded a research grant from East Midlands Arts to travel and paint in Ljubljana in Slovenia, where she was also invited to exhibit by the Slovenian Ambassador at the prestigious TR/3 Gallery in Parliament Square.
Pam has continued to travel and sketch all over the World, including New Zealand (as part of a 51-Day Millennium Around The World Tour, where Pam sang as First Soprano) and also the south of France in search of the awe-inspiring landscapes that dominate her work. Pam also finds inspiration closer to home in the North York Moors National Park, which many of the images in the exhibition depict.
Pam’s paintings of hills, coastlines, sunsets, rocky paths, dramatic skies and grassy fields are sometimes painted with fine detail and take the viewer directly to the place, whilst others are painted with much more gestural brushstrokes as Pam conveys the emotions she was feeling at the time and mood she was in through her bold and skilled use of colour. Both show a deep spiritual connection to the landscape and transport the viewer right there.
Large wall-hung pieces form the main body of the exhibition, but Pam (a prolific painter and printmaker) also has many smaller-scale works that can be purchased right up until the exhibition finishes on Friday 23rd December. The gallery and studios are open daily from 10.00am to 5.00pm (apart from Sundays and Tuesday afternoons) and are fully accessible. Parking and entry are free of charge.
