After the success of the debut exhibition last summer, Binnel Studios is once again opening its doors to the public this summer.
The six fully-established artists who work from the former Isle of Wight Glassworks in deepest, but delightful St Lawrence, invite you to their studios between 6th and 8th of August.
Exhibiting a wide variety of artwork, across all mediums, the quality of work here is world class and all available for purchase.
Potter, Molly Attrill (top left), has been creating her works of art for over 40 years. Working in potteries in France and Canada, Molly went on to establish her own pottery on the Isle of Wight in the early 1980s.
Award-winning ceramic sculptor, Matthew Chambers (top right), has his work widely exhibited and is represented by galleries in the UK and internationally. His exquisite ceramic works have been purchased for several museum collections as well as Spanish fashion house, Loewe.
Jane Cox (bottom right) is cited as one of “the Top Ten collectable potters currently working in the UK” (Patricia Morrison, The Guardian)
and has had permanent collections at The Crafts Council, The British Council and The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. She’s held lecturing posts and received numerous awards.
Painter, David Firmstone (top middle), been involved in art all his life, since he won the Children’s Painting Prize in 1958. His landscapes and seascapes of the Isle of Wight and abroad are incredibly commanding and must be seen in person.
Guido Oakley (bottom middle) creates unique pieces of sculpture, with the use of exquisite crystals bring each sculpture an element of healing art. Guido has an intriguing ability to mesmerize you with his creative genius immersing you in a somewhat etheral world of beauty and majestic glamour.
Celia Wilkinson (bottom left) studied painting at St Martins College of Art in the mid 80s and has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad. Her paintings are an expression of what she’s feeling, using the landscape as her starting point.
