Our Current Exhibition

Colours of my mind
Solo exhibition by Jane E. Richmond

I am a Burnley born Artist and Sculptor.  I had superb tuition from my 6th form Art teacher Ron Perry at St Theodore’s, and went on to have brilliant Sculpture training at The Liverpool Institute for Higher Education by the late Sculptor and Royal Academician Ifor Freeman.
I worked in education in London for many years but returned to my Burnley home in 1989.  After many years in education I changed careers 4 years ago to become a full-time Artist.

This exhibition brings together the media I love working in – ceramic sculpture, painting in acrylic and oils, and silk painting.  Each of them gives me something quite different.  I love depicting human emotions through my art and I love flowers.  Both subjects often seen as twee in art terms but my aim is to bring them up to date by the use of bold colours and images in paintings and silks.  My favourite flowers are generally large and often quite sculptural.  My favourite being the Calla lily and despite my love of colour it is the white ones I find the most beautiful.  When making sculpture, my aim is to depict human emotions through form, and up to now they have tended to be quite gentle and representational.

The more I work and create, the more I develop and explore.  I don’t limit myself and I always feel that what I have created so far is the tip of the iceberg, so watch this space!!

KEVIN, THE KING OF EGYPT
Kevin is an escaped psychiatric patient.
Millie is a six year old with a mouth like a sandblaster. Granny doesn’t stand a chance!
Escaped psychiatric patient Kevin Haggerty is not pleased about his diagnosis, even less pleased about being on a section of the Mental Health Act, and distinctly upset about being told he is not the reincarnation of the pharaoh Ramses 2nd. On his way to Egypt, via the Tesco Express, he stumbles across the nemesis to all his plans: Millie.
Together they embark on a journey that will change their lives forever.
Thursday 1st November @ 7.30pm
