An exhibition of paintings by Sue Ifould and handmade books by Gaynor Williams

 ‘Shooting the Breeze’ is an American expression which broadly means idle but pleasurable chat, with the unspoken subtext which suggests that ‘any darn thing may emerge’.  And so it has - this exhibition, with a body of paintings by Sue Ifould and handmade books by Gaynor Williams.   Both artists rejoice in the diversity of the Devon landscape but use quite different media to articulate that sense of wonder at the natural world.

Since relocating from the agricultural flatlands of East Anglia Sue is putting down roots in the red Devon earth, inspired and nourished by her surroundings.

Gaynor is a traditionally-trained book conservator who as well as repairing books rejoices in the freedom of making books from scratch as opposed to working within the constraints of existing structures. She has made a collection of journals, some colossal in proportions and some palm-of-the-hand size, bound in covers fashioned from either whole local sheepskins or handmade sheep fleece felt.
