Bridgwater Arts Centre

EXHIBITION - Steve Gathercole

From the 3rd June 2024
Whilst I always had an interest in Art during my school days I did not pursue art or even appreciate I might have any artistic talent. Later on in life, my wife suggested I took up Art as a hobby. Initially I focused on Airbrush art but soon became interested in Oil’s, Pastels, Coloured pencil, Graphite and more recently Watercolor. Growing up in rural Norfolk villages and coming from a farming background, I was always fascinated by wildlife which is the main subject matter for my artwork.

Will a change of government make much difference? Laugh, shout, argue, vote, save the NHS. Seriously subversive. Dr Phil Hammond (Private Eye, Doctor Doctor, Sex, Sleep or Scrabble?) dissects the ins and outs of pleasure using science, stories and stuff he's made up. From philately to consensual cannibalism.

The legendary double act Fiasco Job Job, Arthur Smith and Phil Nice, having surprisingly beaten the visitation of the grim reaper, reunite for one final time to celebrate their 40th anniversary. But what has changed in that time? Instagram is now no longer just a super efficient drug supply network. Tik Tok is more than the annoying sound of a clock. But apart from that, everything else is about as rubbish as before. "
"My favourite double act" - Harry Hill
