Amanda Newell

Blue Light Gallery, 7 Little Market Place, Masham, Ripon HG4 4DY
10:00 - 15:00

Amanda has been producing a wide variety of quirky birds and animals in copper foil stained glass for the last eight years, after taking evening classes at a local college. Living in Beverley, in East Yorkshire, the stunning landscapes, and huge array of wildlife are the driving force behind Amanda’s work, inspiring her to produce British birds and wildlife in unusual streaky and textured art glasses that accurately reflect the subject. Each piece is unique due to the qualities of the glass and are made by hand from start to finish. The process of copper foil technique itself is a lengthy one. Once Amanda has designed a pattern to be used as a template, each piece of glass is hand-cut, the edges then smoothed with the aid of a grinder, before copper foil tape is applied to all sides of the pieces. The design can then be arranged on a board and hand soldered together to create the bird or animal. Finally they are mounted onto a waxed wooden base, which allows them to be displayed anywhere in the home. Amanda now produces a range of heirloom stained glass Christmas decorations, using her trademark textured and streaky glasses, catching the light perfectly. As Amanda designs all her own patterns, commissions are welcome for panels, mirrors and hanging pieces, from your ideas and pictures.

The Blue Light Gallery is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-3pm. For more information about future exhibitions or if you would like to exhibit, please contact The Blue Light Gallery at the Community Office, 7 Little Market Place, Masham, HG4 4DY or call 01765 680 200 or e-mail: info@visitmasham.com.

10:00 - 15:00

York-born jeweller Rae has been creating unique silver jewellery in North Yorkshire since 2006. She enhances silver’s natural beauty through creating shape, form and texture, occasionally adding colour through jet, gemstones or accents of gold or copper. She uses basic tools to create her jewellery which gives an individual and organic feel to her work. She hand makes every jewellery piece to give a unique and personal touch to it. She is proud of continuing this ancient craft in a traditional way where the skill is very much based on knowing how to use the tools of the trade well.
Rae’s exhibition runs from Saturday 16th March until 12th April 2019.

Alison Hill

Blue Light Gallery, 7 Little Market Place, Masham, Ripon HG4 4DY
10:00 - 15:00

Alison has always had a love of nature and the countryside. In her exhibitions she loves to capture the essence of rural life in drawings and paintings alongside embroidery. The idea for the textile artwork came from an interest in sewing and how the use of a sewing machine and thread could give the intensity of colour. Also she incorporates pastel drawings on felt, free machine embroidery, appliqué and collage in the pieces.

The Blue Light Gallery is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-3pm. For more information about future exhibitions or if you would like to exhibit, please contact The Blue Light Gallery at the Community Office, 7 Little Market Place, Masham, HG4 4DY or call 01765 680 200 or e-mail: info@visitmasham.com.
Alsions exhibition runs from 28th September-25th October 2019 (not Sundays).
