Syde Art Exhibition.  Syde Manor Tithe Barn (GL53 9PN)
4th-12th November 2017 (10am to 4pm each day, and until 7pm on Wednesday 8th).
The exhibition will be launched at 12 noon  on the 4th with a short recital by Nathaniel Mander (harpsichord) and Sam Brown (classical guitar) of works by Mozart, Bach and Rameau.

Emily van Eesteren, ceramicist, concentrates on surface texture using mainly fossils and shells. The pieces are ‘raku-fired’, which gives the glaze a wonderful variety of colours against a matte black background. Following a visit to Iceland, she developed a range of porcelain bowls with lava-imprinted edges, filled with melted blue and green glass.


Mick Ponting’s sculptures are influenced by his experiences in Outer Mongolia and Paleolithic cave paintings. Mick’s bronze sculptures are informed by his anatomical knowledge gained from his work as a veterinary surgeon. ‘Transfiguration’ (see picture) is a large stone sculpture made from oolithic limestone.


Norma Doveton has created a painted impression of the village of Syde from photographic records both new and old. The nine paintings in the exhibition are oil on canvas. Norma studied at Bath School of Art and Design where she obtained a Master’s degree.




3pm Service of Consecration of the Churchyard Extension
by the Bishop of Tewkesbury, the Rt Revd Robert Springett.
After the service there will be a cream tea.
