We are delighted to be hosting local photographer, Di Carey's, new exhibition "Watch the Birdie". The exhibition launches on Saturday 2nd March and runs to April in our Create Space - with a fantastic opportunity to meet Di on 2nd March at 1.30pm.
Watch the Birdie has been a year or more in the making, with visits to the Farne Isles in Northumberland, Bempton Cliffs on the east coast, Skomer Island in Pembrokeshire and several local nature reserves, culminating in the prints on show.
Di produces original limited edition photographic prints, predominantly of wildlife & landscape. She has a BA (Hons) in Fine Art: Sculpture, and developed an interest in photography during her Foundation Course.
Four years of studying art had an impact on the way she looks at the world, which she hopes is reflected in her photographs. Di does not use Photoshop and employs a light touch when editing. She likes her images to be as close to the original scene through the viewfinder as possible.
Di says "I love the spontaneity of photography, the quirks of fate, but also the contemplative aspect of the discipline. Any form of visual art involves the maker looking long and hard, otherwise it can't speak to others, in my view (no pun intended!)"
Free to view during our opening hours, prints and cards available to purchase

Maggie O'Keefe returns with her popular Mindful Drawing monthly workshops. She will guide you in exploring some simple drawing practices designed to help us let go of the inner critic. You don’t need to know anything about mindfulness or anything about drawing.
“Mindfulness means the awareness that arises from paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” Jon Kabat-Zinn 1990
Surely drawing is a perfect way to stay present in the moment...or is it? Not if the inner critic has anything to do with it. It tells us “I can’t draw”. It judges our drawing to be “not good enough”. It tells us not to bother.
But the inner critic is just another form of thinking, and as Ruby Wax tells us “Thoughts aren’t fact, so don’t take them seriously”.
Times/Dates: Saturday 16th February; 23rd March 10am to 1pm
Cost: £30 per workshop
