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!

TOM HAMMICK

New paintings and prints

23 May – 25 June 2016,

OPEN Thursday & Friday 10 – 5, Saturday 11 – 3, & by appointment.

Tom Hammick’s new atmospheric landscape prints emerge from cut wood. His images are metaphors for the human condition; reflecting states of mind, transience, fragility and awe. He is inspired by the British Romantic tradition and Eastern culture.

s TH113 Tom Hammick Violetta & Alfredo's Retreat

“This image It is in part influenced by a 1950’s Japanese film and in part a picture about love so strong you ignore everything else. There is nothing in the world apart from those two figures. They are in a vortex of passion and love like Tristan und Isolde have for each other. Their passion  detaches them from reality. Hence they are in their boat far off from anything else.”

Hammick has an international reputation for his stunning colourful printmaking. Selected Exhibitions – UK: Brighton Museum and Art Gallery; Rabley Drawing Centre; Flowers Gallery, London; USA: Flowers New York, Yale Centre for British Art; The Library of Congress, Washington DC.; Canada: Christina Parker Gallery; France: Hypnagogic; Galerie Prodromus, Paris.
