Crafts Magazine have just posted a rather lovely little feature about our 2012 Mixed Display in their online News section...
Marsden Woo Gallery heralds in the new year with a large-scale group exhibition, Mixed Display (until 11 February)
This show does exactly what its title promises, displaying work by a varied group of artists in a range of media. The majority of the 26 exhibitors come from the gallery’s regular stable of artists – and a quick skim through the list of participating names explains why this gallery has such a great reputation as it represents most of the great and good in the field including the likes of Gordon Baldwin, Ken Eastman, Alison Britton and Philip Eglin. 

These stars will be showing alongside a selection of specially invited makers such as Owen Bullett, Tom Foulsham and Alida Sayer who’ve previously showed in the gallery’s downstairs Project Space. ‘These artists in particular were selected as we felt that their work had made a really strong impression, and that it encapsulated the experimental and often conceptual nature of the Project Space’, says the gallery’s Rachael Crabtree. A third group include six associated artists (James Evans, Tony Hayward, Lawson Oyekan, Jacqueline Poncelet, Phil Sayer and Sam Scott) with whom the gallery have a long-term relationship. As both groups will be showing new works, some specially made for the show, this promises to be an exciting and eclectic show and a great way to kick start the artistic new year.
