Unearthed is the title of a new exhibition at The Gallery at Parndon Mill in Harlow featuring paintings and ceramics by two artists.
Deirdre Shepherd’s paintings, incorporating gold and silver leaf, celebrate the ancient landscapes of the Outer Hebrides and Ireland. Gallery curator Sally Anderson said, “They are a personal response to the colors and atmosphere of these ancient places and they sparkle.”
The paintings are complemented by sculptural ceramics by Nigel Earle which are influenced by geology, landscape, architecture and industrial archaeology. “The paintings and the ceramics look beautiful together and are a delight to behold,” Sally said.
Parndon Mill is off Elizabeth Way in Harlow (CM20 2HP). It acts as a hub of creativity, housing artists, artisans, designers and architects who share ideas and collaborate on work.
Visitors can commission original artwork in media as varied as oil paint, clay, glass, fabric, stone, wood and metal. Art for an office can be purchased or rented, commercial graphics commissioned, or a building or product designed.
The gallery on the ground floor of the mill features arts and crafts exhibits, and there is always artwork available for purchase.
The project space hosts various arts-related activities such as classes, workshops and events. Classes in various creative practices are offered in the studios for individuals or small groups.
