Both are notable international musicians, with Madeline described by The Times as ‘one of the UK’s liveliest musical forces (and) foremost violinists’; whilst Motoki has performed in over 100 countries and the programme features premieres of two of his own compositions and arrangements.

Fri 15 & Sat 16 March 2024 : Mike Denham et al – jazz

Mike Denham

On Friday 15 March : “Clarinet Marmalade” – Following the success of last year’s performance, reeds player Trevor Whiting joins Mike Denham at the piano for an evening of duets. Trevor is one of the finest clarinettists on the UK jazz scene and, not surprisingly, he is first choice for several London-based ensembles. However, Trevor lives in Dorset and describes Tincleton Gallery as one of his favourite venues. Expect to hear this reflected in his playing as he and Mike explore the repertoire from Sidney Bechet to Benny Goodman, with several stops between.

Then on Sat 16 March : “Ragtime meets Boogie” – solos and duets. International blues and boogie woogie star Julian Phillips joins ragtime expert Mike Denham to explore these two remarkable, contrasting piano styles which emerged alongside one another in the early 20th Century. Julian has a great reputation for his wide and varied repertoire, playing in a truly authentic way. He appears at festivals around Europe and the USA alongside other top performers in the genre.

Spring 2024 mixed art exhibition : by gallery artists & guest artists

"Pinks", collagraph by Mary Gillett

Our Spring 2024 mixed exhibition features over a dozen of our gallery artists, plus four guest artists, including a range of sculptures, oils, and prints. Devon-based Mary Gillett has produced four gorgeous collagraphs which we exhibit along with the corresponding block. These contrast with more visionary oils from London-based Consuelo Child-Villiers. Superb seacapes and coastal oils from Kim Pragnell and a charcoal study that deftly contrasts curvature of the boats with the linearity of the yard architecture. Bristol-based Ruth Ander hangs a variety of her monprints. The Hampshire artist Philippa Headley adds her impressionistic landscape oils. 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. 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 are joined by pieces from London based sculptor Almuth Tebbenhoff.

Fri 15 & Sat 16 Dec 2023 : Duncan Honeybourne – classical piano

Duncan Honeybourne

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.

Consuelo Child-Villiers was born in 1953 in the UK to an English Father and Italian/Spanish Mother.

Consuelo lived between the UK and Italy throughout her childhood. Her Father moved to Jersey C.I. when Consuelo was a child . She was educated in the U.K. and spent holidays in Jersey and Italy.

Consuelo trained at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence Italy, where she studied sculpture. After spending a year travelling through India she returned to the Accademia and studied painting, followed by a year studying Modern Art at Forte studios in Florence.

Consuelo studied History of Art at Christies Fine Arts in London.

Her work has been acquired by various private collectors throughout Europe and the US and by corporations such as Debeers. Consuelo has exhibited her work extensively in London, New York, Italy and the South of France.

After twelve years in the South of France Consuelo now lives and works in London.

‘’…..bold line creates a strong geometry of often unlikely juxtapositions, the effect is to produce a powerful design element which both reinforces and constrains the content.
Thus, though she chooses to investigate a magical dream-like world, there is nothing mellow or whimsical in Consuelo’s style.”

Galleries Magazine

…..a vividness of colour, including dreams of a planetary sky, nature in all her luxuriance, feminine sensuousness and creature wilderness.
Then, with unexpected references to the mythological, an attraction for masks, for flora and movement, one is in the company of Matisse and up on the wings of Chagall.

Marie-Pierre Paulicevich
Nice Matin

Consuelo Child-Villiers returns to Mayfair this month ….with paintings which inhabit a magical world of mystery and imagination….fantasy animals, mysterious masked figures and fluid shapes recalling the Viennese Secessionists…there’s a hint of the Renaissance in the rich ,vivid colours and decorative detail of clothing and fabrics…
