Light Colour Texture exhibition at the Pie Factory Margate.

I went to the Pie Factory to see their latest exhibition, Light Colour Texture, a show by members of See Glass and friends.  Their website here

They have put on a really good exhibition with a variety of work, the main medium being glass.

See Glass was formed in 2012 by a group of Kent-based glass artists  including Christine Maccormick, Fred Hollick, Jennifer Anne Brown,  Lucy Prescott, R Alison Davis and Trish Dixon, 

 Jennifer Anne Brown was in the Pie Factory when I went along and we chatted a bit about the show and her work, which includes a lot of recycled glass. I liked the idea of using old screens and other waste glass products.

  Her piece Till Death, intrigued me it explores death, ascension and re-incarnation and  includes strung pieces of glass and  glass feathers.  I liked the effect of the shadows from the work on the wall, adding to the sense of  movement and change.
 In Making Waves Mermaid Tails, Jennifer shows brightly coloured and textured glass that is very attractive.


Lucy Prescott's work  Margate Harbour had me looking at the landmarks and enjoying the retro feel of the seaside experience. And Trisha Dixon's Kobe Tea Bowls had a mysterious and striking quality that attracted me.

Hildegard Pax is showing some beautiful and delicate works, where slivers of glass seem to float and reflect the light around them.


Other artists showing work includes Shelley Rose's silkscreens and canvas constructions, Julie Taylor's mixed media pieces, and Alison Davis wooden forms inset with glass.

The exhibition is on till the 29th of April  and is well worth visiting.
