Strange Miscellanies - 'h.Art' at Ross Library

'Strange Miscellanies', is a joint exhibition at Ross Library, taking place between 7th and 24th September, bringing together the painter Philip Weaver and the mixed media artist Jeanette McCulloch.

The exhibition celebrates their shared enthusiasm for the creative magic of the natural world and its strange and fascinating patterns and rhythms. It explores the apparent meanings and correspondencies they find in say galaxy and seed pod and between the microscopic and the cosmic structures both observed and imagined. Their artistic imaginations find a poetic habitation for sensed, dreamed but perhaps impossible realities.

Jeanette McCulloch has produced a series of textile hangings that contemplate the unique and extraordinary experience of Being. This work is in a transitory state of becoming, and can be seen as an eternal preliminary. Images float in space, barely anchored, colliding and repelling. There are references to plant forms, manuscripts and ancient carvings. These textiles pieces combine printing and drawing on dyed cottons.

Philip Weaver paints small intense and jewel like paintings, using a rich palette, that describe and celebrate moments of splendour. There is a rare quality in these pictures whose images, reflected on the retina are captured in the heart. The titles are as poetic and magical as the paintings themselves.

Both artists have a love of drawing and have displayed in cabinets a satisfying library of sketchbooks dating back over the years. Alongside these is a curious, meaningful and loved collection of objects: honeybees, seed pods, cacti, animal skulls, toys and other treasured fragments that retain talismanic significance. Each object is accorded the praise due to it, and is confident of its importance as a holder of significance and worth and as a companion of the artists. They stand alongside all things however seemingly insignificant.

Exhibits displayed were by Ben Casson, Debbie Clayton, Jonathan Ellis, Neffy Henscher, Clare Hodgson, Lynn Hodgson, Christopher Huntley, Charles McCarthey, Valerie McClean, Don Nicholson, Pat Northcroft, Heather Pealing, Edna Pennels, Robin Peers, Hannah Waldron, Christian Westmacott and Donna Yandle.

RiB Awards Presentation

With so much going on over the weekend and a late finish last night, I have just not had the time to process the photos of last night's Ross in Bloom Awards Presentation for this issue of the news. I did manage to get a couple processed for the 'Ross Gazette', so they should appear in this week's issue of the newspaper but I will publish more in next week's Wyenot News.
