Paintings by Sue Ifould and handmade books by Gaynor Williams
30 October – 4 November, open 10 am – 5 pm daily
‘Shooting the Breeze’ is an American expression which broadly means idle but pleasurable chat, with the unspoken subtext which suggests that ‘any darn thing may emerge’. And so it has - this exhibition, with a body of paintings by Sue Ifould and handmade books by Gaynor Williams. Both artists rejoice in the diversity of the Devon landscape but use quite different media to articulate that sense of wonder at the natural world.
Since relocating from the agricultural flatlands of East Anglia Sue is putting down roots in the red Devon earth, inspired and nourished by her surroundings.
Gaynor is a traditionally-trained book conservator who as well as repairing books rejoices in the freedom of making books from scratch as opposed to working within the constraints of existing structures. She has made a collection of journals, some colossal in proportions and some palm-of-the-hand size, bound in covers fashioned from either whole local sheepskins or handmade sheep fleece felt.

Anita Reynolds' Students
Tuesday 6 - Sunday 11 November 2018
10 am - 5 pm Tuesday - Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm Sunday
Opening VIew: Tuesday 6 November, 5 - 7 pm
In recent years Anita’s warm-up exercises for her students have become collaborative - mainly to avoid individuals’ fear of failure, but also to present artists with marks and colours that they might not usually make or choose when working alone.
“The aim for me, as mentor, was to encourage new ways of making images. However, an unexpected outcome has been the accumulation of a series of amazing paintings and drawings.”
