Out of the Woods: Exhibition

Suman Gujral and Patrick Joyce 

Tues 30 Sept- Mon 3 Nov 2014

Opening reception
Thur 2 Oct 7-9pm

The Trestle Gallery Cafe will be hosting an exhibition of etchings and prints by artist Suman Gujral and a selection of pieces by ceramicist Patrick Joyce.

Suman is a fine art printmaker, specialising in original traditional and solar etchings. Drawing inspiration from life and the landscapes around us, a lot of her prints are of local areas in Hertfordshire, where Suman has exhibited extensively as a fellow of Digswell Arts Trust and a member of the HVA.


I love the unpredictable nature of printmaking-and the different moods and textures that can achieved depending on how I have inked up the plate and the sort of paper I have used.

 Patrick creates ceramic forms using the technical ‘raku’ method, which involves firing pieces at low temperatures and then covering them in a combustible material whilst still hot. This atmosphere causes the glaze to react, producing beautiful cracked patterns.  He is also a fellow at Digswell Arts Trust and exhibits and demonstrates regularly throughout Hertfordshire.
