Our Autumn mixed exhibition features over a dozen of our gallery artists, plus four guest artists, including a range of sculptures, oils, and prints. Newcomer Consuelo Child-Villiers brings visionary oils. A nautical theme comes from printmaker Colin Moore and Kim Pragnell’s charcoal deftly contrasts curvature of the boats with the linearity of the yard architecture. Hill forts enter by way of landscape monoprints from Bristol-based Ruth Ander. The Hampshire artist Philippa Headley adds her impressionistic landscape oils to the mix alongside the detailed landscape etchings of Devon-based Mary Gillett. A variety of raku ceramics are with us from London-based artist Alison Wear as well as stonework from Sarah Moore and the fine metal/glass/stone scuptures from Bershire based Johannes von Stumm. Imogen Bittner has some new textile pieces as well as work from London-based guest artist Chloe Fremantle and pieces by local guest artist Sarah Batt.
Welcome to Tincleton Gallery
Tincleton Gallery in the Old School House in Tincleton is Dorset’s most intimate contemporary fine art and music concert venue. We cast our eyes beyond Dorset looking for new insights and new artists and musicians, as well as supporting the work of our local cadre. The art works include drawings and paintings as well as a selection of sculptures. Musically we host classical and jazz concerts in one of Dorset’s few venues to boast two grand pianos.
The gallery is open 10am-4pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. If you wish to visit at other times please contact us.
Join us for this pre-Christmas solo piano treat from Duncan Honeybourne. He will play piano music with a Christmas theme and introduce us to his recent explorations of the music of German Romantic Woldemar Bargiel, the half-brother of Clara Schumann; and music by Kent housewife Jessy Reason (1878-1938), whose luxuriant and impressionistic music is currently being rediscovered and explored. The full programme is below, also with works by Robert Schumann, Anatoly Lyadov, Felix Mendelssohn, and Leopold Godowsky.
Duncan Honeybourne enjoys a diverse profile as a pianist and in music education. Following his concerto debuts at Symphony Hall, Birmingham, and the National Concert Hall, Dublin, he made recital debuts in London, Paris, and at international festivals in Belgium and Switzerland. Commended by International Piano magazine for his “glittering performances”, he has toured extensively in the UK, Ireland and Europe as soloist and chamber musician, appearing at many major venues and leading festivals. He has broadcast for over 20 years on BBC Radio 3 and more than 20 radio networks worldwide, including French, Swiss and Austrian Radio, ABC (Australia) and Radio New Zealand. Duncan has premiered over 70 new piano works and his many recordings reflect his long association with 20th and 21st century British piano music.
He teaches at the Royal Academy of Music Junior Academy, the University of Southampton and Sherborne School, and is Founder/Artistic Director of the Weymouth Lunchtime Chamber Concerts near his home in Dorset.
