RABLEY GALLERY AT INK MIAMI ART FAIR, 2017

INk Banner + image #1C6696E

RABLEY GALLERY is exhibiting a collectible selection of newly published editions and original works on paper by foremost British artists including: Eileen Cooper RA, Rebecca Salter RA, Emma Stibbon RA, Jane Harris, Katherine Jones and Nana Shiomi and emerging talent: Prudence Ainslie, Amy-Jane Blackhall, Neil Bousfield, Sally Taylor and Sadie Tierney.

An electric magic radiates from SADIE TIERNEY’s newly published woodcuts ‘Of Night and Light and the Half-light’. Through a unique use of energetic bold line, bright colour and immersive scale, Tierney transfers her experiences and emotions onto the viewer. Inspired by passing ships and fairground lights that punctuate the twilight, these new works capture the excitement of riding the Big Dipper in Santa Cruz, to voyaging across the Atlantic. Tierney sees the Cruise Ships depart from her south coast studio.
This stunning body of work is unforgettable both in its vibrancy of mark making; enrichment of subject matter and technical marvel of monumental scale.

New original prints by Emma Stibbon RA echo the vast, desolate lands encountered during her recent residency in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. Developed from direct sketches and photographic records, Stibbon brings to paper the dry, stark intensity experienced at the cusp of some of the world’s biggest and most active Volcanoes. Internationally recognized for depicting fluxing climates of isolated regions, Broken Terrain and Tree Ka’u Dessert convey the tension within a limbo terrestrial, balancing stillness and beauty with eruption and destruction.

Near 100 years before the abstract art movement of America and Europe, Hokusai abstracted Waterfalls into linear forms. They are powerful graphic calibrations of great force; each waterfall captures a different mercurial spirit. It is these ‘Shapes of Gods’ that are the subject of Shiomi’s cycle of four woodcuts.
Shiomi distils Hokusai’s Waterfalls into stand alone icons, emphasising their symbolic importance to art history and the eternal relevance of their beauty and symbolism.

RABLEY GALLERY UK is a recently elected member of the IFPDA. It has become a destination during Miami Art Week for numerous public and commercial foundations, alongside private collectors seeking to build their prestigious, international print and works on paper collections or unearthing new and exciting talent from across the pond!

Vision for a New Swindon Museum and Gallery

www.rableydrawingcentre.com

New Swindon Museum and Gallery- Make Architects

The vision to build an iconic museum and art gallery in Swindon’s town centre came to life at Rabley Drawing Centre with an amazing presentation by architect Jason Parker from the award winning and internationally renowned Make Architects.

Ann-Christopher RA, Emma-Stibbon RA, Sadie-Tierney, Jason-Parker, Meryl-Ainslie

The project was showcased in the Rabley Gallery to a packed house, all were enthusiastic to know more and backthebidswindon to make a reality this wonderful opportunity putting the new Swindon Museum and Gallery at the heart the renaissance of the town. Viewing the beauty of the architect’s model of the building was a show-stopper moment!

The New Swindon Museum and Gallery Architect’s Model

There are two monumental spires fanning the span of the building that houses a new gallery for the important C20 art collection, the extensive museum and archaeological collections, contemporary galleries, education and community spaces – taking us towards the sky with a beautiful rooftop garden and sculpture park. This will be a cultural heart for local people and to encourage visitors and new life to Swindon.

Robert Hiscox has launched this amazing project, backing it not only with his passion for the arts but his commitment and support of the project to get if off the ground. He has backed an independent board of trustees to drive the project, but remains its inspiration!
