4th DECEMBER to 21st DECEMBER 2023
This exhibition features art made by the current members of 4 Mind Art groups (in Bridgwater, Highbridge, Minehead and Wellington) who meet weekly to make art and share time together. Sometimes they work on a group project, but mostly develop their own art, inspired by different artists and interests, experience and imagination. The facilitators (Annie Jeffs and Rachel Gundry) guide and encourage individuals, and provide materials. They support each other in a safe space to relax and to be creative.
Sometimes visiting artists introduce new techniques . The prints in this exhibition were created by a low-tech etching process, printing onto tetrapak, guided by printmaker Rebecca MacPherson, who has worked with each group over the last year. Exploring new processes and materials creates surprising and beautiful results.

Jackie Curtis – Printmaker
Jackie draws inspiration for her prints as she walks across the Levels and explores the South West Coast. Creating seascapes, landscapes and studies of birds. Finding movement in flight, crop lines, woodgrain and crashing waves. Incorporating colour and light through sunrise, sunset and moonrise. Reflecting the changes in trees and hedgerows as the seasons unfurl. Her artwork not only responds to the natural world it is often created outside, working through rain and shine or incorporating foraged materials.
There is a preview evening on Thurs 4th Jan 6pm – 8pm and you can meet the artist on Sat 6th Jan.
