The Art of George Stubbs
Saturday 29th June – Wednesday 25th Sept

The Granary Art Gallery is showcasing three of the finest paintings by great British equestrian artist George Stubbs (1724 - 1806).

Best known for his paintings of horses and conservation pieces, the selected works include Stubb's The Grosvenor Hunt (1762), Mares and Foals (1768) and Lord Pigott of Patshull (1769).  Having studied equine anatomy, Stubbs' paintings demonstrate a realism that eclipsed other equestrian artists of the time.

Recent Paintings and Drawings by Lance Fennell
Saturday 30th August – Sunday 29th September

Milton Keynes based artist Lance Fennel is currently exhibiting in the Granary Art Gallery throughout September.  Lance paints scenes such as highways, seascapes, landscapes, office interiors and petrol stations.

Using oil paint as his main medium, Lance paints highly detailed and accurate images which have a superb realist quality.  Another unique factor about Lance's work, is the way in which he incorporates the frame moldings as part of the image, with the intention of  representing areas which may not have normally be included.

Recent Work by Lisa Henderson and Philip Huckin
Saturday 30th August – Sunday 29th September

We welcome two landscape artists to the Granary Art Gallery for a selling exhibition of their recent works throughout October 2013.

Lisa Henderson uses a variety of materials to echo the landscape.  Her paintings, which incorporate collaged recycled and pre-prepared papers, drawings in chalks or graphite, and collagraphs, celebrate pattern and the idiosyncrasies of sight. To achieve patination, she applies techniques often associated with printmaking such as wiping and scratching to achieve the crisp qualities her work possesses.

Philip Huckin will be exhibiting a selection of his highly detailed landscape drawings and paintings, many of which are based on the Welsh countryside.   His attention to colour and clarity are clearly shown in his paintings; the use of light and shadow, along with his ability to illustrate depth with varying tones create uplifting images for any home.
