In addition to her work as an artist, Liz also runs Obelon Arts, which produces theatre shows and organises arts projects. She is also a member of the Contemporary Glass Society.

I enjoy working in glass because of its versatility: transparency, opacity, colour, two or three dimensionality, capacity to ‘hold’ or reflect light. It offers an artist many metaphors due to its fragility, strength, sharpness and associations. I am inspired by fragments of stories often discovered in books, toys, archival film footage, photographs which I have inherited.

Liz Waugh McManus will be at the ARTWORKS exhibition from 10am – 4pm.

Today, Wednesday 16th September 2015, ceramic sculptor Kate Reynolds will be at the ARTWORKS exhibition demonstrating how to create clay heads and figures.

Two new exhibitions: Eleonora Knowland and Liz Waugh McManus

Two Artworks artists, Eleonora Knowland and Liz Waugh McManus, have solo exhibitions opening next weekend. Interestingly, both exhibitions feature colour and light as a means to express ideas about memory, time and a sense of place. Eleonora Knowland is a painter concerned with landscape and Liz Waugh McManus is a multi-media artist who works with glass and projected film.

Eleonora Knowland originally developed painting on curved canvases as a way of expressing the undulating surface of the East Anglian landscape, but they have now become an intricate part of her artwork. A recent trip to Australia has inspired a new collection of paintings. The colours in these canvases speak of a hotter climate, stronger, and bolder, with an intensity of light.

Five artists go to a deserted farmhouse: Suffolk Open Studios art exhibition

Longs Farm, an enchanting medieval farmhouse currently standing empty in rural Suffolk, provides an inspiring and unique setting for the artwork of five distinctive artists, who are all participating in Suffolk Open Studios in June 2014.

Wire Sculpture of a Cockerel by Jenny Goater

Christine McKechnie and Gillian Crossley-Holland, both founder members of Artworks will be joining ex-member Jenny Goater, with fellow artists Jane West and Nicolette Hallett, to fill the entire farmhouse with the best of their art as a precursor to opening their art studios to the public in June.  The exhibition will contain a selection of drawings, paintings, collage and sculpture.
Painting by Nicolette Hallett
Christine McKechnie will have on show her popular, intricately crafted, watercolour-painted cut paper collages. These are personal memories of places evoked in colour. They could be of her garden outside her art studio, on which she spends much time and love, a tree down the green lane analysed on her daily walk, or visits to the Suffolk coast. There are also collages of loved places further afield – Glyndebourne in Sussex, Seatoller in the Lake District, the Arsenale in Venice, Thailand, Cambodia, and Hong Kong.
Collage by Christine McKechnie
Gillian Crossley-Holland will be displaying her distinctive and evocative paintings of the Lopham Fens and the North Norfolk coast. These are paintings that explore her love of crossing places and edges, places where the earth is little more than a reflection of the sky, or places where the sea meets the shore, forever shifting back and forth and never permanent.
Evening Sky at Burnham Overy Staithe, by Gillian Crossley-Holland
Also on show will be some of Gillian’s recent still life drawings of spring flowers; pots of primroses, jugs of wallflowers and vases of tulips all worked swiftly in bright colours and vivid marks.  These drawings provide a strong visual contrast to her landscapes and seascapes but the subject matter still explores her fascination with the fragility of permanence.
Buttercups, by Gillian Crossley-Holland
This special exhibition at Longs Farm is open to the public during the Spring Bank Holiday weekend of 3rd, 4th, 5th May 2014 (Saturday to Monday), from 11am to 5pm.
