It's now nearly two weeks after our preview party for Enchanted Forests. It was a lovely evening of good food (exquisite canapes from Cafe Elvira), good wine and most importantly, great company: friends, customers and artists including Bleau-Shanay Hudson, Kate Tulett, Polly Finch, Cat Brown, Adele Scantlebury and Rachel de Freitas. We are now nearly halfway through Enchanted Forests...come in and have a look!

All hands on deck here at the Green Tree Gallery as we set up Enchanted Forests yesterday. Working our way around wire jewellery artist Sue Warner and her very patient workshop participants, we cleared the walls and packed away....

Red-faced confusion all round....we got rather carried away writing last week's post and got the name of Glory Art Glass supremo wrong. The Isle of Wight-based Glory Art Glass is run by Martin Evans, his wife and their two sons. By way of apology, here are a couple more pictures of their stunning work....

After a week of rain, floods and definitely autumnal temperatures we feel the need for some colour. So this week we are showing you stunning glassware of Glory Art Glass. Each piece is hand-made by Martin Evans, his wife Nicky and their two sons, who together run Glory Art Glass from their studio gallery at Sandown on the Isle of Wight. Often only a dozen or so pieces a day are made and no two pieces are the same. Right now in the Green Tree Gallery we have birds....

This week we're showing you the work of ceramicist Faye Mayo. Whether it's a tiny pinch pot, a larger vessel or a torso sculpture, the eye is drawn to the vivid blues and greens of each piece's glazed interior.

Last week we were looking forward to the magic and mystery of Enchanted Forests, our next exhibition in October. This week, not wanting to wish our lives away, we thought we'd invite you in to see what we have in the gallery right now.....

Can't believe four months have whizzed by since our last post during our 'A Riot of Spring' exhibition here at the Green Tree Gallery. Now, with only one week remaining of our fabulous summer exhibition 'Gone to the Dogs', it's time to make amends for our blog-free zone of the past four months..hopefully a case of 'better late than never'?! There are no fewer than 10 dogs sharing the lives of us Gallery Gals...and 'Gone to the Dogs' is our salute to those canine friends. The exhibition features the work of more than a dozen artists, offering a wide range of styles and media across all price ranges. Wire sculptures by Emma Bird are simple but stunning, whilst our own Julie Janvrin's and Victoria Lovell's ceramic sculptures really capture the personality and character of their canine subjects. Also in ceramic are Tessa Mackie's jugs, mugs, pots and bowls, all with doggie decoration and Iveta Goddard's charming pots, clocks, tiles and other giftware. Christine Jenkinson offers hauntingly realistic oil and acrylic dog portraits and Heidi Langridge's oils capture the warmth and essence of the pack hounds. Anna Wilson-Patterson's paintings and monoprints feature lurchers, greyhounds and salukis and Kevin Maddison's etchings combine humour and narrative. And with titles such as 'Stressed businessman with amorous dogs', there is real humour as well as evocative scenes in David Fawcett's paintings. Lastly there are dog-themed textile treasures from Jill Housby, Debbie Medlicott and Sam Phillips and colourful handmade collars and leads from Scrufts. And perhaps the best reason for a last-minute look at 'Gone to the Dogs' is the chance to bid in the silent charity auction for either Victoria Lovell's 'Cairn' sculpture or Anna Wilson-Patterson's 'Finn' large red lurcher painting. Proceeds will be split between Dogs Trust and Southern Lurcher Rescue. 'Gone to the Dogs' ends Saturday 1st September.
